Famed New York City grocer Dean & DeLuca just unveiled its latest concept, STAGE, a fast casual eatery with gourmet offerings, at 29 Ninth Avenue.

“We are committed to the evolution of Dean & DeLuca beyond its traditional markets,” said Sorapoj Techakraisri, who acquired the gourmet brand in 2014. “Dean & DeLuca STAGE pays tribute to the brands heritage of innovation, its origins as the authority that reimagined the relationship between food, design and culture.”
The sleek eatery, designed by architect Ole Scheeren, serves a variety of high quality meats from beef to slow roasted turkey and roasted porchetta, as well as salmon and special vegan options. An all-day beverage station has a selection of coffee and juices, with wine and beer offerings later in the day.
Out of plain sight is a small takeaway window near the left back corner where customers can have food boxed in small black packages when on the go.
STAGE serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. A second STAGE is set to open in Midtown later this summer.
