Even before Dean & Deluca opened it doors to the public, there was already plenty of hype going on. This hype will either be good or bad for the business as it raises people’s expectations.
I ordered a matcha latte to go with my meal and was disappointed by it. Starbucks’ green tea latte is still the best in my opinion. If you are a fan of chai latte, order it at coffee bean & tea leaf instead.
Eggs Iberico comes with 2 poached eggs, mushrooms, jamon iberico (cured meat) on toast. I’m not sure what bread is used but it looks like rye or pumpernickel. This dish was pretty good but I’m not a huge fan of the jamon iberico as the flavours are too intense. I prefer parma ham/prosciutto.
The sautéed brioche French toast with salted caramelized bananas and fresh berries was SO GOOD. Maybe it’s because I love french toast and salted caramel.
Some goodies from the store:
Very pretty tubes of tea leaves.
Super expensive spice rack.
