Well folks, I've got good news and bad news.
First, the bad news. After 10 years in the hood, Press 195 is closing its Park Slope location. Owners Brian Karp, Chris Evans, and Jimmy Volz are packing up shop on the flagship location of their popular sandwich chain to focus on their other locations in Bayside, Queens, and Rockville Centre, Long Island. Press plans to close on June 8, so catch their signature burgers, knishes, and pressed sandwiches in the neighborhood while you still can.
Now for the good news. Press 195's location won't be vacant for very long, because Park Slope's newest sandwich sensation, ZITO'S SANDWICH SHOPPE, has agreed to takeover the location, which means they'll be bringing their banging sandwiches (and killer sides) down to 5th Avenue. This news comes from Zito's owners Marcello Bucca and Enzo Conigliaro, who say that if all goes well with permits and whatnot, they could be up and running as soon as June 18.
