Delilah deli launches to the delight the folks of Leicester.

Leicester’s booming food scene has received a delicious boost this month with the opening of Delilah Fine Foods at 4 St Martin’s.  The fiercely independent delicatessen and food bar has enjoyed a successful soft launch period and will celebrate their official opening on Friday 5 August with a special tasting event.

Delilah has enjoyed huge success with their first branch, which is based in the heart of Nottingham’s Lace Market and just off fashionable Bridlesmith Gate and the Leicester opening marks the next phase of their journey. They pride themselves on working with the very finest producers, stocking thousands of different products within their new home on St Martin’s. The delicatessen is coupled with an impressive fully licensed food bar, which means that the vast range of high quality produce can be tasted in a range of specially crafted dishes for breakfast, lunch or an early supper.

The quality of produce at Delilah has been recognised with various National awards including Olives et al Deli of the Year 2012/2013, Local Gem of the Year 2015 for the Good Food Guide and BBC Good Food Magazines/Waitrose Small Producers Award – Best Independent Delicatessen 2007 to name just a few, and that quality is set to continue in their Leicester venue.

Occupying the former Allied Irish Bank the delicatessen is very spacious and visitors can spend many a luxurious afternoon grazing on the produce, enjoying coffee and cake, or a weekend champagne brunch. Of course, not just limited to food, their enormous selection of wines from independent vineyards also represents one of the city centre’s finest collections.

Owner, Sangita Tryner, commented, “Leicester has a vibrant food scene and we’re delighted to now be part of that. We’re a fiercely independent delicatessen and have enjoyed welcoming in our first visitors during our soft launch period. We love meeting with new customers and talking to them about our products and we look forward to doing that a lot more at our launch event on 5 August.”
