Favorite items at Dean and Deluca?

I just ate at Dean and Deluca for the first time last night and really enjoyed it! I've shopped there every once and a while, but had never eaten. I sampled the white bean and tuna sandwich, the salmon chowder, and the smoked salmon sushi. I LOVED the sandwich... just the way I like my tuna salad, not too creamy, and the addition of white beans was tasty! I love the selection of drinks as well. What are your favorites from D&D?

    I go to the Dean & Deluca in Georgetown and I like their coffee drinks and their cookies a lot. The "soft molasses" cookie and the "soft ginger" (or something like that) are really good as are the fancy homemade oreo type sandwhich cookies (not sure what their name is). Their deli meats are good too, but I haven't tried their sandwhiches, though I imagine they are good. I also like their "petite baguette" bread. And they have a really good sparkling water type drink in a green bottle that's flavored with elderberry flowers (not sure what it's called, but I believe it is Canadian).

      I tried the G.U.P. (Grown Up Soda) brand that was the Valencia Orange flavor and it was really good... a lot less sugar than a regular soda.

      I really LOVE the chocolate-covered pretzels they have... I spent about $40 the last time I was on the East Coast. :)

        As an ex NYer, I adore Dean and Deluca. I live in the heart of celebrityland in Los Angeles, and I don't understand why they won't open here!
