Downtown deli announces name, concept details

Feb. 19, 2018

Myers Deli & More will be the name for the new deli and marketplace that plans to open next month in The Carpenter Building downtown.

It takes the place of Keller’s Green Grocery, which closed late last year on the main floor of the building at 221 S. Phillips Ave.

“Everything’s coming along well,” said owner Dan Myers, who also owns a catering business and has been a chef at several area restaurants.

He has painted the space, added light fixtures and built a counter for the deli, which will include many fresh meats such as house-made prime rib, oven-roasted turkey, Black Forest ham, jalapeno bacon, corned beef and pastrami. Many cheeses will come from Stensland Family Farms. The deli counter will include a salad bar, and the menu will offer hot and cold sandwiches, and salads.

The adjacent micro-market will serve grab-and-go items, including prepared foods, Stensland milk and ice cream, and convenience items. The former hotel safe is becoming a wine display.

The space will include seating for about 50 people and several couches.

As soon as this month, Myers plans to start supplying meat and cheese trays and a tapas menu to the Carpenter Bar.

“I think tapas will be really neat, and I think Sioux Falls is missing that,” he said.

The plan is to open Myers Deli by mid-March. Hiring is going well, but six more employees are needing in serving, bartending and barista roles.

The business will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily at the start, with later hours Thursday through Saturday.

“We’ll probably start the fine dining in the evening a month or so after and add Sunday brunch,” Myers said. “We’re always going to evolve and keep doing different things.”
