The highly anticipated opening of a new branch for the leading pizzeria in the UK is getting the locals in the historic city of York excited, and we feel the same. Rudy’s is one of our favourite pizzerias and York is just that step closer to us – so this is big!
Located at 5 High Ousegate, the ground floor of a former shop is poised to undergo transformation into the new restaurant, complete with a rear dining courtyard.
Mission Mars, a prominent hospitality company boasting a diverse portfolio of brands, including Rudy’s Pizza, has submitted a planning application for the development.
Check out our trip to the Sheffield one Rudy’s below:
According to the submitted plans, a courtyard will be established at the rear of the Grade II-listed High Ousegate building, with the addition of sliding doors on the side. This historic structure, dating back to 1743, holds a significant place in the city’s heritage.
Rudy’s has three restaurants in Leeds and one in Sheffield, so it’s exciting to see York getting its very own. The original Ancoats-based pizzeria is now all over the UK with Yorkshire’s first situated near the Leeds train station. Their venues tend to be a relaxed atmosphere with a focus on simple, fresh and amazingly tasty pizza.
Rudy’s serves up classic Neapolitan pizza with a focus on quality. Enjoy classics such as Marinara, Margherita and our favourite Calabrese all of which are authentic to Naples the birthplace of this beautiful pizza.
The dough is made fresh daily and is fermented for at least 24 hours. Topped with ingredients imported from Naples twice a week such as San Marzano tomatoes and Fior di Latte mozzarella.
Cooked in a wood-burning pizza oven on-site, it takes just 60 seconds to create the iconic leopard-spotted pizza that tastes like no other. They also serve a range of drinks alongside its tasty pizzas such as Italian classic Aperol Spritz, and refreshing summer drink San Pellegrino.
The document says: “The proposals maintain a design of high quality which is in keeping with the area, and will have no real impact to the elevations facing High Ousegate. The proposals will deliver public benefits by contributing to the aims and aspirations of the York City Centre Neighbourhood business plan, by helping to increase the footfall within the Ousegate area.”
