Very sad news to report. The owner of Joe's Superette at 349 Smith Street, passed away this morning. It was just this past Monday that the doors to his beloved deli were closed for good.
Leo will be much missed by many here in the neighborhood. My own kids have never known a Carroll Gardens without Leo, the Superette and the delicious sandwiches and prosciutto ball.
Funeral arrangements have been made at Aievoli Funeral Home, 1275 65th Street (and 13th Avenue), Phone Number: (718) 331-2100
You can pay your last respects to Leo on Saturday and Sunday from 2-5 PM and from 7-9 PM
