Boerum Hill Retail Report: Dean Stop Deli on 4th Avenue

November 20th, 2008 · No Comments

Just when you thought 4th Avenue had enough generic corner shop delis another one rears it’s Boars Head. Dean Street Grill, a Mediterranean/Caribbean take out on 4th Avenue and Dean Street, closed it’s gates this Summer and has since been gutted and reopened as Dean Stop Deli. Filling the new shelves are sodas, chips, candies, soups and the usual bodega toiletries and everyday essential things. In the back where you could once order creamy hummus and meaty oxtail dishes there is now a deli station carving up the ubiquitous Boars Head’s meats. More than a few local workers and residents will morn the passing of the old Dean Street Grill. After all it was lauded as one of the best cheap eats in Time Out Magazine for Dean’s overstuffed jerk chicken pita for only $4 bucks. On the upside we now have a clean and new deli that is offering a cheap eat of its own for all the morning Atlantic Station commuters. The bacon, egg and cheese on bagel will only put you back a measly $2.50 and on the way home you can pick up a pastrami on roll for only $3.75. Perfect for these troubled economic times.
