CONROE, Texas, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CONROE, Texas – "Mangiamo! Let's eat."

Local resident Guillermo Medellin, an experienced food service professional and current owner of Russo's New York Pizzeria in The Woodlands, has inked an agreement with Russo's Restaurants to open his second location in the North Houston area. The well-known, Houston-based Italian restaurant that brings to life old world charm and hospitality will open in June 2014 at 3915 W. Davis St. in Suite 180. It will be situated by the intersection of SH 336 and West Davis Street near the HEB.



Medellin has owned his Russo's New York Pizzeria in The Woodlands since 2009.



"There is no denying the demand for quality Italian dining options here in Conroe. As the city grows, our community seeks newer, fresher concepts that are fun for the whole family," said Medellin. "I can't wait for families in our community to experience the family-friendly atmosphere as well our signature recipes."



Russo's New York Pizzeria has garnered a cult-like following for its truly authentic and delicious Italian dishes made from the freshest ingredients and its New York-style pizza. The restaurant blends the freshness of fine ingredients with the magic created around a homemade Italian meal.



"We are thrilled that Guillermo is opening a second location with us. He truly understands what our restaurants are founded upon – the importance of spending quality time with family around the dinner table and helping the community in every manner," said Chef Anthony Russo, founder of Russo's New York Pizzeria and its sister concept, Russo's Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen. "Guillermo's restaurant in The Woodlands has been an instant success and a thriving participant in the community – he is involved with helping schools, other small businesses and local art and tourism. We know that he's the perfect person to introduce Conroe to their very own Russo's."



The Russo's name has become synonymous with coal-fired New York style pizza and authentic Italian meals. Beyond the brand's specialty pizzas, menu items include fresh salads (Insalata), soups (Zuppe) and homemade pastas. Authentic Italian cannoli, fresh seafood, chicken, veal and flatbread sandwiches are just some of the distinctive dishes on the menu. The full Russo's New York Pizzeria menu is available at www.nypizzeria.com.



About Russo's New York Pizzeria


Russo's New York Pizzeria lives by a family promise that dates back more than half a century, "If it isn't fresh, don't serve it." This motto has served Russo's New York Pizzeria well since founder Anthony Russo opened his first pizzeria more than two decades ago.

The concept has gained recognition for its remarkably fresh food and the affordable price of menu options. Preparation of pure ingredients and the execution of memorable Italian food keep customers coming back for more.
