If you’re constantly searching for the finest of artisanal mustards and locally-prepared jams, gird your truffle salt lovin’ loins because the country’s fanciest grocery store is officially coming to DFW.
CultureMap reports that Dean & DeLuca, known for its selection of upscale ingredients and prepared fare, will open its first Texas outpost in Plano’s Legacy Hall next year. No word yet on exactly how big the market will be, but considering Legacy Hall’s sprawling 55,000 square feet of space, you can bet that it won’t be tiny.
The specialty grocer joins a ridiculously high-powered stable of restaurateurs planning stalls for Legacy Hall, including mystery concepts from FT33’s Matt McCallister, Monkey King Noodle Company’s Andrew Chen, and Patina Green’s Robert & Kaci Lyford among others. Last week, we learned that Chef John Tesar will open the first outpost of his quick-service spot Knife Burger at Legacy Hall.
The original Dean & DeLuca first opened in New York City in 1977, and has since expanded to dozens of locations around the world, including Dubai and Bangkok. Perhaps we should be a bit insulted that Wichita, Kansas scored a Dean & Deluca before it made its way to Dallas, but the company has long been headquartered there.
Legacy Hall is set to debut in March 2017. In the meantime, cheap olive oil from the supermarket will have to suffice.
