Parkville Plaza Deli grand opening


Sayville’s beloved Parkville Plaza Deli had its grand opening on Friday, April 15. Opening up at 5 a.m., Suffolk County News’ reporter was the 10th customer of the day at 7:15 a.m.

While our reporter did not order a bacon, egg, and cheese, which our Sayville staff said was the cornerstone of the deli, and instead opted for a Cuban panini, the food lived up to its high reputation for quality and deliciousness.

Rick Kaywood, one of the owners of the newly renovated Parkville Plaza Deli, was ecstatic at opening a traditionally well-patronized establishment after being shuttered for two and a half years following a fire in October 2019.

Kaywood and associates had only taken over the deli in March of that year. With the pandemic, it took even longer than planned to reopen.

But the renovation offers a fantastic new setup, with this iteration of the deli featuring a bright new salad bar and new menu items like falafels and gyros.

“We really wanted to give the community all that Parkville offered and more,” said Kaywood.

Featuring a renowned chef who used to head the kitchen at the prestigious Oheka Castle, the Parkville Plaza Deli is slated to become a community fixture again.

An official ribbon cutting held by the Greater Sayville Chamber of Commerce will take place in the next coming weeks.
