Press heads to Grant Street

Press-Raw-Buffalo-NY-2After briefly establishing Press Raw Food & Juice, an organic food and juice bar, on Connecticut Street (inside Horsefeathers Market), owner Esther Pica has decided to pick up the business and move it to Grant Street (learn more). The new location on Grant gives her the ability to be a stand-alone storefront, in the heart of what has become a bustling stretch of businesses. The storefront boasts excellent display windows, where customers can look out onto the street while enjoying their organic treats, ranging from fresh ginger shots (great for hangovers) to a Moroccan carrot and beet salad, to cold brewed coffee. There will also be food items made to order and retail shelf space filled with organic raw food staples… not to mention WiFi for those looking to hang around for a bit.

A few of the other benefits that Grant Street offers Esther are efficient space, added visibility, and a welcoming neighborhood. “I’ve already met everyone around me,” Esther said. “We all want to work together to make this street even better. Grant Street is very charming, and I have a good feeling about being over here. I’m hoping to interact with the street in ways that I just couldn’t do in the market – such as yoga in the lot next door and café seating out front. I’m looking forward to the holidays and getting people healthy. We’ll even be offering cleansing packages as gifts…”

I’m sure that one of my New Years resolutions will be getting myself in better shape than I am now. Ever since Press opened for business I’ve found myself loving the raw juice varieties that manipulate noni, lucuma, goci, maca and maqui, acai, spirulina, moringa and cam into being your body’s best friend. Plus, the drinks taste great and give you a natural boost that lasts… not to mention the health ramifications that go along with drinking raw juices.

Find Press on Facebook. Or visit 197 Grant Street in coming days/weeks (whenever The City gets her the proper licensing to open).

 *Martin Cooks will be opening a European-style market in the former Press location (see here).

Nice to see Horsefeather's being utilized as a launchpad for businesses. Great ideas and great products coming out of that building.

Martin Cooks? It is an odd arrangement when you have to walk through a restaurant to reach the other vendors assuming that may be the conflict...

@grad94 Agreed. I'm really starting to love Grant Street. Elmwood is getting super-gentrified and consistently yuppie (still cool for certain occasions and for people watching, for sure) but Grant Street is the real deal...dense and diverse and full of very unique little businesses. And only getting more so.
