Dean & Deluca Café

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008 Ask any New Yorker to name a few places that are gastronomically synonymous with their great city and, along with The Russian Tea Room and Carnegie’s, it’s likely that the Dean & Deluca will be on their list. Now an international chain, the flagship store sits on the corner of a busy So-Ho street, nourishing the creative types that live nearby and the foreign pilgrims who’ve read about the magic that lies within. The Dubai branch, located on the end of the new Souk Al Bahar under the shadow of the scantily clad Burj Dubai in the so-named Old Town, has no such mystique. That being said, if you haven’t been to the original, then you’re not likely to be disappointed here. The service can be a bit hit and miss, but the food is a true D&L delight. The soups, made fresh, are a great way to start – go for the porcini or the Lebanese lentil if they have it. The sandwiches are also made with the freshest ingredients that then get stacked inside thick slices of bread and served with kettle chips, while the salads, pizza slices, chilli lime prawns and the like are also welcome hunger extinguishers. Last but by no means least, the cream cheese chocolate brownie and the apricot slice are both formidable antidotes for those with a craving for the sweet stuff.
