FAMOUS New York gourmet grocer Dean & Deluca has arrived in Dublin.

Founded in 1977 by Joel Dean and Giorgio DeLuca with the opening of its flagship store in SoHo, New York, Dean & DeLuca has grown into a multi-channel retailer of gourmet foods, wines and kitchenware with operations throughout the United States, as well as international licenses abroad – which now include Ireland, thanks to its Brown Thomas presence.

The designated Dean & Deluca space on Level 3 showcases an assortment of Dean & DeLuca gourmet products and speciality items such as its famous pasta sauces and signature pasta along with risotto kits, truffle oils, porcini sea salts and a French seasoning collection that includes lavender, French Tarragon and rare mustard seeds to enliven your cooking.

The delicious confectionary range from one of New York’s best-known food markets includes almonds and hazelnuts enrobed in fine chocolate, toffee caramels and cheesecake caramels, while kitchenware items such as mugs are available.

Lisa Kageyama, international food and beverage merchant for Dean & DeLuca, said: “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.”
