If you’re into the whole New Yorker lifestyle, rejoice as the famous grocer from SoHo, Dean & Deluca, has made its way on to our shores.

Like the other Dean & Deluca stores around the world, its Singapore flagship will stock a range of private and non-private label products. From exotic herbs and jams to coffee and tea, these artisanal goods have been specially chosen and sourced from the very best suppliers around the world.

What we like about Dean & Deluca is its service. Each member of the staff will be able to share information and even give advice on what condiments will go well with what foods. It is this conscientious and dedicated service that sets it apart from other gourmet grocers.

The 2 areas to take note of are the Dean & Deluca Café within the store and the Cheese and Charcuterie section at the storefront.

Recreating the New York café feel, the café is perfect for a casual cuppa or brunch with the mates. You can mix and match from their extensive menu to create the perfect meal. Alternatively, you can get a takeaway for house parties or picnics.

The Cheese and Charcuterie section features a wide range of artisanal products which you can either enjoy in-store or packed. A maitre fromager will also be on hand to answer any questions you might have on the cold cuts and cheeses.

Dean & Deluca will open its doors on 22 June 2012 at 8pm and is located at 04-23/24 Orchard Central, right next to the rock-climbing wall.
