I think half of Kuwait has already been to Dean & Deluca by now. The Gourmet Store, located in the Avenues Phase II, offers a vast array of produce and foodstuffs, including many never previously sold in Kuwait. The interior of the store looked so fresh and clean with its white walls, white tiles, stainless steel shelving and glass display jars. It’s a place where you can easily stay for at least an hour browsing the shelves.
Each corner of the store has a different counter: readymade food, sandwiches and cold-cuts, bakery and pastry, cheese, and my fave the candy and coffee display counters (check out the photo of the marzipan shaped like fruits & veggies! YUM!). I think Au Nom de la Rose had a counter too.
The service was mediocre, but the quality of food was astounding, we had a goat cheese sandwich with Avocado spread & whole grain fresh toast, and a nice cup of cappuccino. It’s the place for every true epicurean and host/hostess who wants to make his/her events special.
