New York's most famous luxury foodie emporium opened in Dublin
As of yesterday, you can bag yourself a little taste of New York City – right on Dublin's Grafton Street.
The Big Apple's finest and most famous luxury food market, Dean & DeLuca, opened in Brown Thomas – and will be stocking a delicious assortment of Dean & DeLuca products and speciality food items.
If you have ever made a visit to the store while stateside, you know what the expect (yum!). If you haven't, we guarantee you will find yourself wanting pretty much everything.
Our favourite? The famous pasta sauces and truffle oils – perfect for when you really want to impress your dinner guests.
But don't even think about leaving without picking up some sweet treats too – the cheesecake truffles, in particular, are out of this world.
Dean & DeLuca was founded in 1977 by Joel Dean and Giorgio DeLuca. Since the opening of their flagship store in SoHo, New York, the gourmet food retailer has grown into a multi-channel retailer with operations throughout the United States, but the Brown Thomas outlet, which will be located on Level 3 at the iconic Grafton Street department store, marks the store's first opening in Europe.
This is what Edel Woods, Group Buyer at Brown Thomas, had to say:
“We are thrilled to see the exclusive arrival of Dean & DeLuca at Brown Thomas with its superb range of culinary quality foods making it the destination for foodies in Ireland.”
Lisa Kageyama, International Food & Beverage Merchant for Dean & DeLuca, is also excited about the Irish launch:
“We are absolutely honoured to be making the Dean & DeLuca European premiere at the world-renowned Brown Thomas. It is wonderful that Ireland will be able to experience many our signature products that have been long enjoyed in New York and other parts of the world”
The Dean & DeLuca will be available in store at Brown Thomas, Grafton Street, and online at Brownthomas.com from Thursday, April 27.
