Officials announced June 16 that Russo’s New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen is set to open in October in Lakeland Village Center, 10615 Fry Road, Ste. B1-600, Cypress.

The eatery specializes in New York-style pizza, but calzones, pasta, deli sandwiches, salads and soups are also on the menu. Chef Anthony Russo opened the first location in downtown Houston in 1992, and the franchise now has more than 40 locations.

“The growth of Bridgeland made this new location very attractive to us,” Russo said in a statement. “We are confident that new and return customers will enjoy the recipes my family passed along and will appreciate the legacy that we are honoring with each dish.”
