Fresh Face

As a third-generation restaurateur, hospitality runs in Toni Calderone’s blood. Her grandfather introduced pizza to York County, the same area where Toni has grown ONE Hospitality Group for the last decade.

In keeping with her Italian roots, community means everything to Toni, so when the opportunity came for ONE Hospitality Group to bring The Pressroom back to the Lancaster community, Toni jumped at the opportunity. Since its reopening, Toni has heard countless stories of engagements, wedding receptions, and birthday parties that have been held at The Pressroom.

Reviving this Lancaster staple meant creating a space where life’s biggest moments could happen, while also making the space comfortable for dinner in the midst of a busy week. “When you come in, I want you to feel like you’re being taken care of, like you were coming into your family’s kitchen,” Toni said. “I want you to feel like your hard-earned money is well spent when you’re at my table.”

The Pressroom staff takes every opportunity to provide an outstanding dining experience where each guest is welcomed from the moment they walk through the door. Behind the scenes, the chefs and culinary team are prepping everything so it is delivered to tables in the freshest way possible. Using Lancaster’s bountiful produce and quality ingredients, The Pressroom has adopted a farm-to-table approach for their American Bistro menu. The new menu includes odes to old favorites like the meatloaf and wedge salad, while also introducing twists to familiar dishes and new specialty handmade pastas.

“I want The Pressroom to be that place you just come with your friends, your coworkers, or your girlfriends or boyfriends and just enjoy yourself,” Toni said. “As long as people come in with open minds and open hearts, it’s still your Pressroom.”
