The Americana at Brand in Glendale is well-known for its upscale shopping and fine dining destinations. Occasionally, after a long morning of shopping, my husband and I want a simple, light meal, and that’s when we stop by Deluca’s Italian Deli. Nestled between Trattoria Amici and Sugarfina, this is the perfect spot for a quick lunch.
Deluca’s offers a wide selection of hot and cold sandwiches, deli salads, and a number of hot items like turkey lasagne, traditional Italian meatballs, and grilled salmon. Their menu suggests a number of daily specials as well. Eric and I usually opt for a panini sandwich each, plus a few deli salad side dishes to share if we’re extra hungry. The sandwiches pictured below are the turkey caprese sandwich with olive tapenade (one of my personal favorites) and the strawberry, spinach, and turkey panini.
In addition to the restaurant aspect, Deluca’s is also a marketplace. They offer a huge variety of Italian chocolates, candies, crackers, cookies, wines, and more for purchase. The displays cover nearly every inch of the shop’s walls, stretching from floor to ceiling. As you sit and wait for your food to arrive, it’s difficult not to be tempted to buy everything in sight!
I highly recommend Deluca’s Italian Deli on your next shopping excursion to Glendale. It’s a perfect alternative to the more expensive sit-down restaurants throughout the Americana.
