DETROIT, May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sterling Group, the Detroit based
development firm that recently successfully renovated several downtown
properties including the landmark Guardian Building, continues its
commitment to downtown revitalization with the opening of two new exciting
eateries in two prominent downtown Detroit locations; Gateway Deli, a
unique New York style eatery in the Fort Washington Plaza, and Stella
International Cafe, located in the first floor lobby of the beautiful
Guardian Building began welcoming customers this week.
"The Sterling Group is committed to the city's urban revitalization and
development. We want to make sure that we make a statement about quality
and investment in Detroit beyond a simple retail operation. Both Gateway
Deli and Stella International Caf� offer us an opportunity to make sure we
keep our Motown roots true while offering the downtown Detroit workers as
well as visitors a variety of food with an international flair," said
Sterling Group Vice President Danny Samson.
According to Samson, the Gateway Deli in the newly remodeled lobby of
the Fort Washington Plaza is a family owned operation with three suburban
locations and has the look, feel, and quality of a classic New York style
deli. The restaurant boasts a diverse menu that offers tempting breakfasts,
lunches, and dinners, including everything from mile high sandwiches to
chicken marsala and mouthwatering pasta selections. The Gateway will also
soon add an additional spark to downtown Detroit with caf� style outdoor
eating this summer along with seasonal specialties.
For those looking for to grab a gourmet item on the go Samson suggests
a visit to the new Stella International Cafe located on the first floor of
the Guardian Building where they will find authentic grilled panini on
focaccia bread, fresh salads, and a variety of sandwiches with many of the
menu items featuring baked good items from Detroit's best bakeries. And
just in time for summer, another familiar and favorite taste of Detroit,
Alinosi's homemade ice cream, will soon be available. Stella's is a fast
paced cosmopolitan Toronto- esque type carryout that is sure to please the
very busy but still discriminating diner.
"Both the Gateway Deli and Stella International Caf� represent
something much bigger than your average restaurants opening for business.
These eateries are unique and are indicative of the kind of positive
growth, change, and redevelopment happening downtown. Their location, their
atmosphere as well as their unique menus bring something different to
dining in Detroit," insisted Samson.
The Sterling Group has revitalized a variety of residential,
commercial, and industrial properties, many of which are area landmarks
including the historic Guardian Building.
