Phoenicia Deli is a 28,000 square foot international food market and deli at the One Park Place apartment tower on the edge of the Discovery Green. The aisles of Phoenicia boast 10,000 gourmet and specialty food products from more than 50 countries. There is fresh coffee, butcher meats, seafood and produce as well as cheeses, housewares, beer, wine and a 25-foot olive bar. The market also makes its own breads, pastries, pizza sandwiches, international prepared foods and hot grill items. There is a 150-long conveyor belt that takes pita breads on a journey from the market's mezzanine bakery to customers on the ground floor. In addition the store boasts a 250-seat bar/restaurant called Phoenicia MKT Bar with an urban chic design.
