One of New York’s foodie heavens has recently set up shop in Istanbul’s Kanyon shopping mall. Dean & DeLuca Istanbul adds a Turkish twist to the Dean & DeLuca formula, offering a restaurant, café and coffee bar where visitors can spend time relaxing with friends – in contrast to the American branches, which place more of an emphasis on the purchase of gourmet food to cook at home.
Dean & DeLuca Kanyon caters for the Turkish preference of sitting down for extended meals rather than New York’s grab-and-go style and is popular with the lunchtime crowd from the offices surrounding Kanyon mall. Even so, there is still a deli and market section where visitors can pick up local olive oils and spices, as well as cold meats and cheeses from around the world.
Dean & DeLuca is one of the world’s best-stocked, highest-quality gourmet food retailers and those who are familiar with its stores across the US, Japan, Thailand, South Korea and the Middle East will settle into this Istanbul store easily – while those who do not know the Dean & DeLuca brand will discover a new favourite for quality and luxury foods.
