Calista Foods under new ownership?

  • c

I passed by Calista today and saw that it's now called the Heliopolis Deli. Does this mean it's now under new ownership? I didn't stop in, so I don't know if they still have the same dips & spreads.

  1. The place is under new ownership. The couple have put alot of work into improving the inside and have added inventory. The spreads and dips are still available - and delicious. They have added more ready-to-eat take out like spanikopita, pita pizzas, and an olive bar.

    The beer selection is the best in the immediate area with decently priced Euro and domestic.

    Even the milk supplier is different than the local bodegas - they get it from a dairy in Northport LI.

    The new owners are really nice and have done alot to the place in their first year. I make an effort to support them.

      I second. Nice folks and good prices. Good variety of olives and nuts. Good daily soup. Huge beer selection.
