Dean & DeLuca Restaurant Review: Launched in Manhattan, Dean & DeLuca spread to Charlotte where several locations keep the city well fed. And in Charlotte the high-end chain opened its only Dean & DeLuca Wine Room, a swankier offshoot from the grocery store’s interior offering dozens of wines and small bites. Not sure you want to commit to a full glass or bottle? The Wine Room offers two-ounce “tastes” and flights. Guests may start with breakfast and good coffee and return for sandwiches (we suggest the turkey and avocado on sourdough or a caprese on a baguette) and fresh, hearty 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 Mediterranean staples to others with Asian touches. There are soups and desserts, too. At this bright and airy branch, windows look out onto the grounds of a luxury shopping emporium.
