Full Dean & DeLuca review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/12/dean-deluca.htmlAn upmarket grocery store and cafe, Dean & DeLuca was founded in New York City, United States Of America, by Joel Dean and Giorgio DeLuca in 1977. As an emporium retailing gourmet food and houseware, Dean & DeLuca was among the first of its kind, and quickly gained fame. Dean & DeLuca opened its doors in Singapore in June 2012, with a focus on retailing their famous house brand of items.As a grocery store, Dean & DeLuca is laid out in a neat, linear pattern, with rows of shelves displaying their wares. The most eye catching displays are their bakery and confectionery counter with various pastries and freshly baked bread that smell amazing. Their salad and desserts refrigerated display is colourful and eye-catching as well. Dean & DeLuca also has a good number of seats for their cafe, featuring modern, comfortable furniture in hues of wood and teak, with a solid feel.Most interaction with Dean & DeLuca staff are limited to over the counter transactions, and the cafe itself is largely self-service, with ordering, payment, and collection done at the cashier. However, I do find staff helpful, able to advice on items in stock, or provide general information on food preparation. Thumbs up as well for efficiency in fulfilling orders, you'll generally wait less than 10 minutes for your food. However, dirty / empty tables aren't cleared quickly, typically taking up to 15 minutes or more.Cuisine at Dean & DeLuca is largely Italian American inspired, with a small selection of main courses, and all-day breakfast / brunch items, as well as salads. Taste of most of their main courses borders on average though, nothing very spectacular. Their specialities are their desserts and baked goods, be it bread, pastries, or other confectioneries. Portions are suitably large American size helpings, and prices are reasonable for the use of fresh, premium produce, budget around SGD $28 or more person for a meal here.The festive Christmas Red Velvet Cheese Log Cake (SGD $9) was pretty good, I loved the taste of the cream cheese frosting, and the log cake itself was light and still slightly moist. The colour was attractive too, deep and rich hue of red. Worth a try!The festive Christmas Rainbow Log Cake (SGD $7.50) looked very pretty and colourful, but the taste was rather disappointing. Flat and one-note, plus I felt there was too much cream. Even I scrapping off the majority of the cream, it was still rather heavy on the palate.I loved the Honey Glazed Gammon Ham (SGD $23), which had 2 thick slabs of savoury smoked gammon ham, covered in a thin cranberry sauce. The grilled vine-ripened tomato was juicy and very tasty, with an intense tomato flavour. Also like the sauteed button mushrooms, with a nice, earthy taste. The weakest item here was the garden salad, while fresh, lacked dressing and was dry. Overall though, this was the best main course I had here. continue reading
