What's happening with Dean & Deluca in Fashion Island?

Originally this store was to open this summer....and now I am hearing rumors ranging from "it's a bit behind schedule, to later this fall, to early next year, to even 'it's been put on hold'. What's happening....does anyone know. Will Newport be getting a D & D anytime soon?

        So if I start saving $20 out of every paycheque I might be able to afford it by the time they open.

          Actually, they have many things that are quite reasonable, especially considering the quality. I'm really looking forward to it! Thanks for the info!

            In NYC they had Chanterelle mushrooms for $65/lb hahaha

              Unfortunately, I've seen them at the farmers market for $14 1/4 lb. The $14 catches my eye and then I do the math. So whether $56 or $65, it's too much.

      2. I wouldn't bet on the store opening as scheduled, if at all. D&D is on the skids. They postponed construction of the new store in Kansas City and have laid off key people in their corporate office.
