​After five months of gut work and remodeling, Dudley’s finally lifted the brown paper veil last week on its adjacent “deli” space at 87 Orchard Street. The shared wall was broken down to connect the two stores, the former being the onetime home of Guss’ Pickles (and later, Maraya Cigars).

This added real estate – dubbed Dudley’s Deli – allows for an expanded kitchen and takeaway window for grab-and-go service. When we first broke the story last summer, the plan was to offer a slightly different menu and “market” style dry goods. Chalkboard menu inscriptions further elaborate…

Items like chicken, prime rib, and porchetta on the rotisserie are all available. Plus, salads and grain bowls. The Dudley’s Deli mission statement seems more like a competition with Dimes down on Canal Street, though.

The produce at Dudley’s is chosen on the basis that they are produced by thoughful and passionate people who applly a sustainable, organic, or biodynamic approach. The finished product is less manipulated, displays greater purity of flavor, freshness, balance, and above all, it tastes great, maaate!

Dudley’s opened on Orchard Street in 2012, having replaced longtimer Tiny Giant.
