Dean & Deluca Macau to debut at Galaxy
Dean & Deluca Macau will launch its debut fine-food cafe in The Promenade Shops inside the Galaxy.
It will be serving grab-and-go items as well as signature retail goods. The menu will include roast beef and caramelised pumpkin multi-grain sandwich, spicy prawns, guacamole on squid-ink bun, Cobb salad, and watermelon salad with salted egg, reports Hong Kong Tatler. Founded by Giorgio DeLuca and Joel Dean, the original store opened in New York’s SoHo in 1977. Designed to evoke a turn-of-the-century food department, the store offered a range of produce and foodstuffs that included many goods previously not sold in the US, such as radicchio, balsamic vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes and extra-virgin olive oil.
Since its acquisition by Thailand’s Pace Development in 2014, the brand has morphed from a multi-channel retailer of gourmet foods, wines and kitchenware into more of a cafe-delicatessen style chain, with multiple outlets in the US, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and the Philippines.
Macau will have a 26-seat cafe featuring New York City subway tile and Carrera marble. Its espresso bar will offer classics like Americano and lattes to specialties like Hong Kong milk-tea latte and burnt-custard frappes, a cold drink that reflects the Portuguese egg tart.
