Shops with great selection of Greek honeys?

I'll be visiting New York from Boston in a few weeks, and I'm hoping to find a Greek/middle eastern shop with a fabulous selection of Greek honeys. It's easy to find Attiki and Orino honeys here, but I'd like to try even more varieties. Any recs would be very helpful!

  1. In Manhattan, not much in the way of a place like that - International Grocery probably has the single widest range, but at least a few are the generic sort you mention. Try the Outer Boroughs board, too - Astoria is your best bet, maybe something in Brooklyn. I happened on a fairly large Greek grocery store in Bay Ridge on 5th Ave in the high 70s, but I'd wait for a more specific rec before making that long subway trip.

    I've seen a couple at Whole Foods, but I imagine they carry the same stuff up there in Boston, too. There are a number of places that will have a couple or few, but unless there's a particular one you're looking for, that wouldn't really be worth the effort - lots Attiki around here too....

    1. Sorry, Int'l Grocery is on 9th Ave near the corner of 40th St.

      1. I believe I saw quite a selection of honeys the last time I was in Kalustyans. Their website seems to suggest that they have quite a selection. Give them a ring to see what they have.

        1. Try the Litkisakos markets on the Upper East Side - they have great Greek specialties.

            Do you know if they also have Kadaif dough?

          2. Not sure, but the owners are Greek and if they don't carry it, should know where you can buy it.
