We're proud to call Brooklyn home, and if you haven't physically stepped into our neighborhood and experienced how awesome it is, then let us tell you a little about what we've got going on.

 

We like to think of ourselves as a glorified bodega, hence our name Dépanneur, which is a French-Canadian term for convenience store. But we're not your typical corner store. Instead of slanging mass produced potato chips and high fructose filled chocolate bars, we strive to carry a collection of the smartest, delicious, and most innovative products from Brooklyn and around the world. From Mast Brothers chocolate, which is made on our very own block, to Almdudler, an Austrian herbal lemonade whose overseas popularity matches that of coca cola, we try to keep a curated stock that glorifies all that is awesome in the amazing world of artisinal food.

 

Our new website and online shop are meant to be a hub for like-minded foodies to shop, read, share, and of course, indulge. That being said, we're super proud of all the products we carry and because we feel like we have a personal relationship with our goods (don't worry, no one is doing anything weird with the curry ketchup), we're sure that you'll enjoy them just as much as we do.

 

Things truly are better when they're made by people who care.

Come Get Your Thanksgiving Sides

Thanksgiving is a day of many tasks, including (but not limited to) preparing a moist-on-the-inside-crisp-on-the-outside-bird, keeping certain relatives away from each other, cleaning the house, and cooking a wholleee lot of sides. Dépanneur wants reduce some of the stress that goes into preparing a Thanksgiving feast (and add some DELICOUS flavor), which is why we're whipping up scrumptious side dishes for you to pick up on the big day! Come to the Dép to reserve your sides in advance, at the delicious price of $8 a pint, $13 a quart, and $60 for five quarts! Then swing by on Thanksgiving (assign someone to babysit the turkey for a few minutes) to take them home. You're not gonna want to miss out on these super seasonal and satisfying prepared foods. If you want, you can even tell your guests you made them. Just pour the veggies into a pretty dish, heat up, and throw out the tupperware immediately.

 

Here's what we're offering:

 

  • Purée of Pumpkin Soup with Austrian Pumpkin Seed Oil and Chili
  • Brussels Sprouts, Grilled with Pancetta, Fried Capers, and Toasted nuts
  • Straight Up Mashed Potatoes with a Touch of Roasted Garlic and Horseradish
  • Glazed Winter Root Vegetables with Hard Cider and Herbs
  • Cranberry Compote with Meyer Lemon Zest (available only by pint)

 

Sign up by November 19, 5 pm to reserve yours! Pay upon signing up. (If you forget to sign up by the 19th, you can try your luck and swing by on T-Giving to see what we have available.)
