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.
Delicatus will be open from Friday 11/29 through Sunday 12/1 until 4pm each day. We will not be serving Dinner so we can go home and eat all our leftover Turkey. We will return to our normal hours of operation starting Monday 12/2. Thank You and Happy Holidays, Mike, Derek & The Delicatus Crew
We are excited to welcome our Seattle Seahawks back home after a resounding win against the Falcons that finally saw our Hawks playing all four quarters with complete dominance! Hopefully they can continue to dominate as they come up against the Vikings this coming Sunday Nov 17th. While both the Falcons and Vikings are at the bottom of the pile the Hawks are firing on all cylinders despite missing 3 key Offensive Lineman. It’s good to see the Hawks playing to their potential, especially with the Saints coming to town the following Monday night December 2nd. We will be open at 10am to fill your bellies and get you ready to cheer our Hawks to victory. We will be serving brunch from 10am-2pm so come on down and let’s get ready to rumble!!!!
