Delicatus, [del-i-kot-uhs] Latin, adj.: delicate, alluring, delightful pleasing; also (especially regarding a person)overly luxurious. German: root for Delikatessen: 1. Prepared cooked meats, fish, cheeses, salads, etc. 2. A shop where such foods are sold.

Delicatus was formed by and for those who think that dining should be an experience that resonates. Derek Shankland and Mike Klotz founded Delicatus on the simple concept that people in the greater Seattle area deserve a better sandwich. Until now, the idea of a deli in Seattle has been broadly misrepresentative of the traditional European delicatessens and the ones that European emigrants founded in the Eastern United States. Here at Delicatus our vision is to meld both local and European traditions by using primarily Northwest-sourced ingredients purchased directly from local farmers, artisan producers and suppliers of the finest regional products. Our principles of sustainability, superior quality, and commitment to service all combine to offer guests a dining experience unlike any other in Seattle.

Upcoming Events @ The Kitchen – May 16 Slovenian Dinner + May 30 Northwest Heritage Dinner


Chef Willis has been hard at work developing a series of menus for some incredible dinners here at The Kitchen by Delicatus. Chef is starting off the May dinner series with a duo of collaborations with long time friends and colleagues.

First up on Saturday May 16th is the return of our Slovenian Dinner with Derek Shankland. This has been an annual dinner we have brought over from the deli in which Derek and Chef Willis will prepare 3 courses of their favorite Slovenian dishes. 3 courses, complimentary amuse and aperitif for $60 including tax and gratuity.

On Saturday May 30th with our Northwest Heritage Dinner we will be welcoming the return of Barolo Joe to Seattle with an evening that is guaranteed to excite. Barolo Joe is a 3 man pop up dinner club based in LA that will be returning to Seattle for a second year to collaborate with Chef Willis. The focus of this dinner will be on the Cultural Heritages that have influenced the Northwest food culture with a menu steeped in the diversity of the Northwest. 5 courses with complimentary aperitif for $75 including tax and gratuity.

We hope to see you at our table soon!
