GreenStar's deli is far from traditional, but with a new focus on local, fresh and handmade interpretations of classic dishes from around the globe, the Delicatessen @ GreenStar joins a long line of eateries that feel like home to their patrons.
The American deli was born out of the simple longing of a people for their comfort food. As Eastern European Jewish immigrants settled in the cities of the Northeast in the late 1800s, they brought with them their homemade recipes and created an institution — the deli. Some of these ancestral delis, such as the famous Katz's, which opened on the Lower East Side of New York City in 1888, are still here today, and the idea of "the deli" has thoroughly permeated American cuisine.
The GreenStar deli's new menu does include some of those traditional Jewish deli foods — knishes, corned beef – while encompassing simple, seasonal and handmade food from many traditions. Whatever culinary background you hail from, whatever the cuisine you crave, whether you're a hardcore vegan or dedicated carnivore, you'll find something to love in GreenStar's deli.

Tucked away behind the roadside foliage in Newfield, NY, there is a lot of “good stuff” going on. Good Stuff by Mom & Me, that is.
To be exact, GreenStar’s fast-selling raw foods supplier is actually run by two down-to-earth mothers, Tanya Petrich and Claire Lunny, who have been in business since October of last year. However, when you meet them, you’d think they have been a dynamic duo for years. They joke and giggle and compliment each other as they cut brownies or prep sprouted cashews. Their workspace is as inviting as their personalities — the soft lighting, wood floors and granite countertops make you feel like you’re at home.
New in the Deli
|It's Carnival Time at the Hotbar!|
March is bringing big things in the Deli! We’ll help you celebrate Mardi Gras and St. Patty’s Day in style.
What an exciting month in the Deli! We’ll kick things off March 4 with Fat Tuesday on the hotbar. Stop by and treat yourself to our New Orleans-inspired menu. Check out the Grab-and-Go case this month for some new items to help you get dinner on the table. We’re bringing in some fresh pastas from Vermont Fresh, which has been handmaking their products in small batches since 1992, and we are really excited about them! With St. Patty’s Day this month, Andre thought it was the perfect opportunity to expand our Kerrygold Cheese offerings. Look for their Reserve Cheddar, Swiss, and Skellig Sweet Cheddar to join the already popular Blarney and the classic Dubliner. Finally, along with the bakery, we will be moving into our new central kitchen across the street this month. Over a year of hard work has led to this moment and we couldn’t be more excited!
