Dean & DeLuca Restaurant Review: Dean & DeLuca is Manhattan born and bred. But in Charlotte, 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. The Wine Room serves light bites, such as cheese and charcuterie that pair well with wine, or hearty entrées like ribs braised in local beer. Desserts, madeleines to a cherry clafoutis, are legendary. Wines are all American with more than 70 options by the glass or taste (you order by desired pour size). Not sure what to get? Go for one of a dozen wine flights. Other locations.
