The Dean & DeLuca goal is, and has been since the beginning, to discover, introduce and support products that meet our---and your---uncompromising standards.
It was 1977 and the area south of Manhattan's Houston Street was still mostly a grimy warren of warehouse and small manufacturing companies. In a retail space at 121 Prince Street, near the corner of Greene, two men were about to start a revolution.
Georgio Deluca, a school teacher turned cheese merchant and Joel Dean, a business manager at the publishing company Simon & Schuster, 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. The original store was designed to evoke a turn-of-the-country food department with ceiling fans spinning over a vast array of products that lined the soaring white walls.
