The original DEAN & DELUCA opened for business in September 1977 in SoHo, New York City through the efforts of Giorgio DeLuca--a school teacher turned cheese merchant--and Joel Dean, a business manager at a publisher. They 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.

In 1988, Dean & Deluca relocated to a 10,000 square feet street-level space at the corner of Broadway and Prince Street with a redesigned concept of an outdoor marketplace. Today, DEAN & DELUCA boasts ten locations across the continental U.S.A. including New York City, Washington D.C., Charlotte, North Carolina; Leawood, Kansas, and Napa Valley, California. DEAN & DELUCA can also be found globally with 55 locations, including Hawaii.

THE RITZ-CARLTON location features the Urban Luxury concept that is synonymous with DEAN & DELUCA. A Chic venue with a frequently updated menu, visitors will find an extensive deli and café on the ground floor as well as an eat-in space for those looking to enjoy wine, cheese, and charcuterie.

THE ROYAL HAWAIIAN CENTER location is an ode to Hawaii’s traditional plantation style aesthetics complete with DEAN & DELUCA original Hawaii-exclusive merchandise. This Grab & Go concept heavily features local-style takeout lunches for visitors looking for a quick, high-quality bite.
