That is my calculation as well -- everything is twice the price, even compared to other expensive Upper East Side stores. I must say, though, I do sometimes shop there for the bread. I think their "Health Bread" is great. Also, Eli's sells fabulous baby lettuce, for a price, which is not available anywhere in the neighborhood -- I would guess the closest approximation is the lovely leaves sold at Union Square Market -- also at an extraordinarily high price. But for fish, meat, cheese, vegetables, etc., the prices are prohibitive. Nevertheless, Eli's is not wanting for patrons!
