After six years in Pioneer Square, the team behind Delicatus plans to open a satellite location at the bottom of Benaroya Hall—formerly home to a Starbucks. There’s no firm opening date yet, but executive chef Derek Shankland and co-owner Mike Klotz are aiming for mid-July.
The new spot’s menu will consist of some of Delicatus’s greatest soup, sandwich, and salad hits, along with new sandwiches that will play off the Benaroya location’s symphonic theme. The full bar won’t carry over, but beer, wine, and a few “afternoon-type nibbles” like a torchon and baked brie will be available. This Delicatus will also feature items like house-made jam, charcuterie, and wine from Sous Sol, Delicatus’s sister winery.
The expansion also kicks off a new partnership with Pike Place Market veterans Bavarian Meats, who will source and distribute Delicatus Wooden Table Products. The initial roster includes "roast beef, corned beef, pastrami, turkey, ham, and a wine-cured Tuscan salami.”
The new location at 200 University Street will be scaled-down of the original, with about 15 seats inside and an outdoor patio that will seat over 20. In chillier months, a glass roof and outdoor heaters will shelter Seattle’s delicatessen enthusiasts.
