It all started here, in SoHo, September, 1977. This team creates a feast for the senses in an environment where expert customer service and culinary excellence reign. Each department is a panoply of color and abundance that's meant to be touched, smelled and tasted. Our managers are experts in their fields, intelligently editing from a vast array of products to offer the very finest. Each manager works directly with the artisan producers, the farmers, the cattle raisers, the fishermen, the truffle hunters. If you have a question, you know whom to ask.
Convenience doesn't equal compromise here. Take home a dinner that satisfies your cravings for artfully prepared foods, using the freshest and finest ingredients available. Pack a picnic that reflects the seasons. Our prepared food counter is a celebration of the diversity of products made available to us in New York, and of the enlightened palates of our customers. Our recipes, from Seared Yellowfin Tuna with a Mango Chutney to Mini-Meatloaves to Roasted Carrots and Fennel, strike a balance between intrigue and comfort. Our chefs bring to Dean & DeLuca an expert talent for cooking with international ingredients. Take home an entire meal, or pick up an exciting side dish for the Argentinean beef you're planning on grilling, or a bowl of soup to complete the meal you're making out of fresh mozzarella and focaccia.
NEW YORK CAFÉS
DEAN & DELUCA introduced its first cafe at 121 Prince Street, in the heart of SoHo's gallery district and at the site of the original DEAN & DELUCA. A stylish and relaxing cafe that offered exquisite food, decadent pastries and an atmosphere suggestive of European cafe culture, it set the standard for the cafes to come. Over the past 10 years, DEAN & DELUCA cafes have grown and flourished throughout New York City. Our comfortable and stylish cafes dwell in several exclusive New York neighborhoods, including Greenwich Village, the home of our University Place cafe, after which Felicity's DEAN & DELUCA set was modeled; Times Square, where we are nestled in Ian Schrager's Paramount Hotel and Rockefeller Center, where our flagship cafe has become the silent star of the Today Show. The offerings extend the culinary excellence that emanates from our parent SoHo store, with a variety of the best coffees, teas and pastries available in the city.
