Cane Rosso officially opens to the public on July 31 as the second eatery to open at The Star complex in Frisco. (The first to open was Raising Cane’s on July 25.) This is the 9th location for Cane Rosso; the original is in Deep Ellum and outposts are now open in Houston and Austin.
Cane Rosso is known for its award-winning, wood-fired pies baked in a Neapolitan-style oven. It may be all about the pizza napoletana, but they’ve also got delicious pastas, sandwiches and salads on the menu, as well as cocktails, wine and plenty of local draft beers.
With a cheeky nod to their location at The Star in Frisco, there are several football-themed items on the menu. The Star pizza/calzone hybrid is literally shaped like a star and topped with fresh ricotta, pepperoni, arugula and tomatoes. The Jimmy Johnson (a former Cowboys coach) Dip consists of spinach artichoke dip layered over a wood-fired bread bowl shaped like a football.
The interior of the 5,000-square-foot Frisco restaurant also pays homage to the Dallas Cowboys with the centerpiece of its open pizza kitchen – a blue-and-silver tiled Neapolitan-style pizza oven in the shape of a Dallas Cowboys helmet. Man, we really love football here. Their spacious outdoor patio faces the Ford Center.
“Cane Rosso at The Star is going to be a lot of fun, and we feel it really embraces the unique development the Cowboys have created — from our coolest oven ever, to creative artwork, to our Frisco-only menu items,” says Cane Rosso owner Jay Jerrier.
Also open now is Cane Rosso’s ice cream counterpart and next door neighbor, Cow Tipping Creamery. The scoop shop focuses on soft serve ice cream made with unique twists on traditional toppings layered throughout their “stacker” sundaes. And you’re going to need one of their Hong Kong-style bubble waffle cones (go ahead, we’ll wait while you Google image search). If the lines out the door during the soft opening are any indication, the Frisco location is going to be very popular.
In addition to being home of the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, The Star complex is home to an indoor football stadium (The Ford Center), the Omni Hotel, a medical center and numerous world-class restaurants, retail and events.
