ELEPHANTS NW 22nd ~ January 2015

What’s New & Exciting?


Elephants Delicatessen has provided romantic dinners for Valentine’s Day for almost 30 years! So if going out to eat and fighting crowds isn’t your thing, choose from our menu of dinner selections, place your order, and enjoy a romantic evening at home. Even better, there are no dishes to delay the rest of your evening. Four different dinners to choose from and we can even recommend a great bottle of wine or Champagne. Visit us online for menus at www.elephantsdeli.com or speak with an order expeditor.


What says Valentine’s Day better than our temptingly moist Red Velvet Cake? This year we are offering 6 or 9-inch cakes and cupcakes. We also have fun & delicious conversation heart shortbread cookies and romantically decorated Ding Dong Cakes. Other favorites include and Lemon Raspberry Heart Cheesecakes and French Macarons. When it comes to sweets for your sweetie, we’ve got you covered.


Champagne isn’t just for New Year’s Eve & yacht christenings. It’s a delicious wine anytime, and especially around Valentine’s Day. We have an outstanding selection of Champagnes, including some grower’s champagnes that offer the quality of the big-boys at half the price. We are talking the real deal here, not sparkling wines of inferior quality and taste. Stop by the wine wall and get in the mood…


Elephants Cheesemonger Chris Remy is not only a savant with cheese, he is also a wizard when it comes to Charcuterie. Recently Chris has revved up our lineup of products to include some real hard-to-find gems. In addition to great salamis and prosciuttos, he has added a few lesser known items like Prosciutto Cotto, Sweetheart Ham and Speck. Chris also makes some of the best house-made rillettes and pâtés in town—duck, pork, chicken & even salmon. Stop by the counter today and taste what everyone is talking about.


Wines from Argentina have been very trendy in America for the last few years due to the amazing quality to price ratio and the delicious uniqueness of Malbec. We are excited to host a fantastic wine dinner this month featuring Martin Coscia of Bodegas Colome & Amalaya in Argentina’s Calchaqui Valley on Wednesday, February 18th at 6:30 pm in our Garden Room. Space is limited, so make your reservations today!
