Dean & Deluca Restaurant Review: Dean & Deluca launched in Manhattan but has spread to other parts of the country, including Charlotte, where several locations keep the city’s denizens well fed. And in Charlotte, too, the high-end chain opened its only Dean & Deluca Wine Room. At this bright and airy branch, windows look out onto the grounds of a luxury shopping emporium. Guests may start with breakfast and good coffee and return for sandwiches (we suggest the roast beef on whole-wheat) and salads made to order. Then return again for dinner on site or to take home. Prepared foods run a wide range, including dishes drawn from French classics and others with Asian touches. There are soups, desserts and, of course, a select grocery line-up to keep the home pantry in order.
