Downtown workers will have several new quick-service lunch options in one streamlined package come Wednesday. The Press Room Cafe will open its doors this week in downtown’s historic Detroit News Building at 615 W. Lafayette Blvd., a representative from Bedrock Real Estate confirms to Eater.

The restaurant, operated by international hospitality company Eurest, is slated to open its doors on April 19 with a host of food stalls including two occupied by celebrity chef-backed Italian eatery Mercato by Fabio Viviani, an Intelligentsia coffee bar, and a Press Room Grill.

Designed by Saroki Architecture, the restaurant features large clusters of globe lights, long tables, and an Italian oven for preparing Neapolitan-style pizzas. Patrons can also expect paninis, seasonal sandwiches, burgers, soups, and salads at the stalls that are geared towards people eating on-the-go.

Press Room is the latest restaurant to bring pizza downtown. This spring alone La Lanterna, Brass Rail Pizza Bar, and Avalon Cafe & Bakery have opened their doors with pizza on the menu, ensuring that Detroiters in the Central Business District won’t have to travel too far for a slice.

The Press Room Cafe is located at 615 W. Lafayette Blvd.; the restaurant opens from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday with coffee and to-go items offered until 7 p.m. Website.
