The DEAN & DELUCA goal is, and has been since the beginning, to cover, introduce and support products that meet our and your uncompromising standards.
Giorgio DeLuca, a school teacher turned cheese merchant, and Joel Dean, a business manager at a publisher, dreamed of creating a place that would offer customers a sumptuous celebration of food and a venue to experience all of the pleasures that cooking and eating can bring.
The original DEAN & DELUCA opened for business in September 1977 in SoHo, then an edgy artist and warehouse district in lower Manhattan, at the corner of Prince and Greene streets. The original store was designed to evoke a turn of the century food department, replete with ceiling fans spinning over a vast array of products that lined the soaring white walls of this enchanted emporium. It was an instant success; quickly overflowing with food, housewares and customers. On display was a staggering variety of produce and foodstuffs, including many never previously sold in the United States.
Gourmet enthusiasts in Singapore can now excite their senses with an international array of artisanal products and F&B offerings at three of its outlets islandwide. The flagship store at Orchard Central opened its doors to the public in June 2012. In December 2013, DEAN & DELUCA opened its second outlet at Far East Square, a unique enclave in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District.
Executives and foodies alike can experience the New York SoHo chic in the 55 seater café, which occupies both indoors and outdoors alfresco. In September 2014, the third DEAN & DELUCA outlet was opened at HillV2, nestled in a quaint neighbourhood at Upper Bukit Timah. Spanning over 2004 sq ft, the same offerings are also available at the 60 seater café. Most recently in 2015, DEAN & DELUCA was nominated as a finalist for the prestigious World Gourmet Summit Awards of Excellence, Gourmet Retailer of the Year. The Orchard Central flagship store has reopened to level one with a surprise for all DEAN & DELUCA fans.
