Russo’s New York Pizzeria is now open at the Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway Street, Suite 635.  The 2,900-square-foot store is the newest to join more than 20 Russo’s Restaurant locations open in the Houston area.

Since the soft opening, residents and visitors are enjoying Russo’s full menu of authentic New York-style pizza and Italian dishes.  The chef-driven fast casual restaurant offers dine-in, takeout, delivery and catering.

“After the success of my first Russo’s location, opening a second location in the bustling Pearland Town Center was a strategic move that made sense for both myself and the brand,” said Sam Farouz, local resident and long-time owner of the Russo’s New York Pizzeria at the Marq-E Entertainment Complex in Houston.

Farouz has been a member of the Russo’s New York Pizzeria family, starting as a guest and then becoming a franchisee in 2003. He fell in love with the food and became attracted to the opportunity and culture associated with the Russo’s brand.

Chef Anthony Russo created Russo’s Restaurants with family recipes featuring New York-style pizza, handcrafted pasta dishes, calzones, salads, sandwiches, soups and desserts. At its heart, Russo’s Restaurants reflects Chef Anthony’s commitment to his New York roots.

Plans for a grand opening are underway.  Meanwhile, guests can enjoy dining at Russo’s New York Pizzeria at the Town Center open daily at 11 a.m. For more information about the Pearland location, call 281-272-6898 or visit online at
