The Press Restaurant is on a mission to bring simple, yet upscale American food to the Foothill communities. Its menu stresses American staples-fish, chicken, steak and pasta-delivered with flair and presented in appetizing portions. The Press also hosts local music groups five nights a week, with an emphasis on jazz and folk performers. The musicians take the stage later in the evening, allowing diners who want a more quiet atmosphere to arrive and eat earlier. The Press is also available for private parties and catering events.
