Villa Enterprises opening 2 new restaurant concepts in NY
Villa Enterprises announced in a press release that it opened two restaurants at SIMON Woodbury Common Premium at 498 Red Apple Court Central Valley, New York. The restaurants include a new prototype-designed South Philly Cheesesteaks & Fries and a new Villa restaurant concept, Tony + Benny’s Authentic Brooklyn Pizzeria. Both restaurants will be located at the food court.
"Our new restaurants offer a great variety of menu options for shoppers of all ages and tastes," Villa Enterprises Executive Vice President of Development Adam Torine said in the release. "Hungry Woodbury Common Premium Outlet shoppers will get to choose from the made-from-scratch authentic Brooklyn style pizza at Tony + Benny’s, along with fresh-cut fries and Philly cheesesteaks at the new South Philly restaurant, all conveniently located at the new Food Court."
Tony + Benny’s new restaurant is named after brothers Anthony "Tony" and Biagio "Benny" Scotto, who came from Italy to the United States with their father, Villa Italian Kitchen founder Michele Scotto, the release stated. The restaurant is an upscale, Brooklyn-themed pizzeria featuring the same ingredients and recipes from Villa Italian Kitchen, according to the release. Tony + Benny’s specialty pizzas include Wild Mushroom Pesto Pizza made with shiitake, button and porcini mushrooms and a truffle cream sauce, Pistachio Sausage Pizza with pistachio pesto, sweet sausage, mozzarella cheese and basil, and Thai Chicken Pizza, chicken basted with sweet chili sauce, garlic, baby bok choy, carrots and mozzarella cheese. Also joining the new menu are Pizza Fritta, fresh-cut fries topped with melted mozzarella cheese, pepperoni and pizza sauce, and Zeppoles, a dessert made with fried sweet pastry dough dusted with powdered sugar.
South Philly Cheesesteaks & Fries opened its first location in 1986. It features cheesesteak sandwiches and fresh-cut fries.
Both South Philly Cheesesteaks & Fries and Tony + Benny’s restaurants will feature digital menu boards. Guests may view live video of the pizzas, cheesesteak sandwiches and fries being made.
