(RestaurantNews.com) Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen has arrived. This is one of San Antonio’s most highly anticipated restaurant openings. Local residents, commuters and visitors can now savor the tastes, aromas and unmistakable ambiance of the upscale, casual dining Italian restaurant brimming with old-world charm and hospitality. Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen is located at the premium mixed-use residential and shopping destination, The Rim, at 17631 La Cantera Pkwy, off of I-10, just north of the 1604 Loop in San Antonio.
“From the moment customers walk in, they know they’re in a very special place. They’re getting a truly authentic dining experience,” said Paula Matthews, General Manager of Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen in San Antonio. “Everything is hand-made, from scratch with the freshest, all natural ingredients. From our crispy coal-fired pizza and calzones to our baked pastas, handmade meatballs and specialty chicken and seafood creations, we serve traditional Italian dishes just the way our guests expect.”
Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen is open for lunch and dinner with an extensive catering menu available. The sleek, trendy and inviting restaurant features an open kitchen where guests can see the chefs at work preparing their food and dishes coming out of the massive coal-fired oven. The unique, open design, which reflects local flair, also includes an exceptional bar with an impressive selection of locally sourced and imported Italian wines. The bar will also serve a variety of beers from San Antonio-based brewers, as well as regional craft brews. At more than 3,500 square feet, the Italian eatery also features a 1,000-square-foot outdoor patio.
“Opening in San Antonio is truly a special occasion for our Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen brand,” said company CEO, Chef Anthony Russo. “We couldn’t be happier about carrying on the Russo’s tradition with this wonderful new restaurant in San Antonio.”
Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen and its traditional Italian recipes trace their origins to a tight-knit family where the kitchen was the center of all activity. Anthony was learning authentic Italian recipes and spent many summers in Sicily and Milan training with Italian chefs. After earning the Chef’s distinction at 18, Anthony honed his skills as a culinary expert working in his parent’s fine Italian restaurant and then opened his own pizzeria while still a young man. After establishing himself as a household name in Houston, he launched Russo’s New York Pizzeria in 1992, and created his franchise system and began to grow. Always seeking a more refined process with unique flavor profiles, he introduced his newest brand creation in 2008, with the opening of his first Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen.
