Russo's New York Pizzeria Opens New Location in Dubai

Prime Hospitality Brings Taste of Authentic New York-Style Pizza to Silicon Oasis

The wait for Russo’s New York Pizzeria at Dubai’s Silicon Oasis is over.

Dubai’s loyal Russo’s fans, who have grown to love the brand since its first UAE location opened in 2013, can savor even more of the unmistakably authentic New York-style pizzeria. The well-known fast casual Italian restaurant that brings to life old-world charm and hospitality announced today that it will open next week at Dubai’s Silicon Oasis, the sleek and futuristic home of Dubai’s rising tech industry.

“Whether customers enter a Russo’s New York Pizzeria in Texas or Dubai, they are getting a true ‘slice’ of New York,” said Henrik Andersen, director of Prime Hospitality, which owns and operates Russo’s New York Pizzeria in the UAE. “The ingredients are fresh in every dish from the pizza and calzones to the pasta. Guests expect something special from these artfully-made Italian dishes, and we’re excited to deliver even more of it here in Dubai.”

Russo’s has established an ever-growing presence in the UAE, with locations open across Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai. The newest Silicon Oasis location is one of 28 slated to open in the Middle East.

Russo’s Restaurants offers an exceptional franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs interested in proven brands that are entirely chef created, chef inspired and chef driven. Russo’s New York Pizzeria and Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen offer the only authentic New York-style pizzeria franchise concept, tracing their origins to a tight-knit family where the kitchen was the center of all activity.

Every delicious dish on our menu offers something new for any palette and we have a growing team of successful, happy franchisees. Opening in Silicon Oasis is an important and exciting step for Russo’s Restaurants,” said CEO Anthony Russo, a formally trained chef who opened his first Russo’s New York Pizzeria in 1992. “We look forward to carrying on the Russo’s tradition in Dubai and doing so with a group with a track record as proven as Prime Hospitality’s. With their unmatched experience, Russo’s can look forward to a bright future in the UAE and the Middle East.”

Chef Russo customizes the menu to adapt to the local trade area by creating recipes using local fresh ingredients and spices. Menu innovation is at the heart of Russo’s Restaurants’ successes. Blending generations of Russo family Italian recipes, Chef Anthony’s handpicked ingredients and a commitment to research and development, the brands have continued to stay ahead of culinary trends. A prime example is the development of a full line of gluten-free pizzas and pastas – a sincere response to the request for the great-tasting gluten-free pizza from health conscious families and thousands living with Celiac disease worldwide.
