Refresh and revive: Dean & DeLuca

As a crossroads for trade and commerce for thousands of years, Istanbul has made the most of its ties to Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Over time the city has perfected its unique blend of east-meets-west and nowhere is this more evident today than in Istanbul’s cafés and coffee houses

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.
