Historic London deli and grocery gets a facelift

Panzer’s Deli & Grocery, which has been serving locals and visitors to St John’s Wood since 1944, has been refurbed to take its “décor and offerings into its next phase”

The new-look Panzer's now boasts a 1950s Europe-inspired décor with an international food offering from more than 80 countries around the world. Customers can visit the establishment to find such fine foods as cheese from small villages in France, imported peppers from Turkey, Argentinian meat from the charcuterie counter, American cookies or international hampers for any occasion.

A new Coffee Bar is manned by a head barista serving up coffee using a Victoria Arduinio espresso coffee machine. There is also a lunchtime deli offering of sandwiches, salads, dips, cooked dishes and Panzer's popular smoked salmon, all prepared on the premises in the chef's kitchen downstairs. Cakes, tarts, muffins and pastries are made daily by a pastry chef, available to take out or for home delivery.

A new in-store Sushi Counter offers visitors the choice to sit-in at the counter on bar stools or to order a selection to go from the in-store menu. A joint venture with the team at Ataryi Ya wholesale, Maido chefs make all of the sushi on-site, with creations including special black cod gunkan and yellowtail with mustard miso cut roll.

David Josephs, owner of Panzer's Deli & Grocery said, "Panzer’s hadn’t been touched since 1944, so the store was in desperate need of a renovation to redefine our deli/grocer proposition. With this came new branding and design whilst still keeping a distinct nod to keep its heritage, and of course, paying respect to the nostalgia of the regular shoppers.

Feedback has been overwhelming delight, not just on the selection of world products but also on the stunning 1950s Europe design. Customers have been very impressed with the welcome addition of the Coffee Bar and Sushi Counter, plus the lunchtime trade is packed at our fresh deli counter."
