Passover Catering


Cater your Passover Seder with Eli

Eli looks forward to Passover every year. He has been catering Passover Seders for over four decades, and eating his mother’s gefilte fish for a lot longer. Leave the work to him this year, and call the Catering Department at 212-717-8100 EXT. 9 to plan your Seder from soup to nuts (literally!).




Tradition, tradition…

There’s a moment each year where three of my favorite holiday pastries arrive in the stores all around the same time. Suddenly in the span of a week I can easily gain 5 pounds indulging in these seasonal treats. Nothing fancy but oh how I love Irish Soda Bread, rich with raisins and caraway seeds, triangular prune or poppy filled Hamantaschen, and on Good Friday a warm, sugar iced hot cross bun. All are available at my stores or for online ordering.




A tisket, a tasket, ...

…the Easter Bunny brought a basket and it was filled with eggs of every sweet description: jelly beans, chocolate, marshmallow and cookie. You’ll find plush bunnies, rubber ducks and surprises for every age, neatly packed in a French crate. Order yours online to ship all over the US, or stop by Eli’s flagship market or E.A.T. Gifts to make one of your own.




Brrr… it’s cold outside

Let us shop and deliver your groceries, 7-days a week, while you stay warm inside. Call 212-717-8100 Ext. 9 to place an order with experts who will shop your groceries with Eli’s discerning eye, and deliver your carefully packed perishables to your door or doorman. In a rush? Email or fax orders are also accepted.


Flower Department


Spring is in the air…

It can be hard to find nature in this concrete jungle, just inside the front door at Eli’s you’ll find a Flower Department where Spring is always in the air. Brighten any day with flowers from Holland, the Cote d’Azur and seasonal, locally grown blooms. By the stem, in a nosegay, a lavish bouquet or centerpiece, the focus is always on carefully crafted arrangements mixed with untraditional choices that make a statement. Order bouquets ‘just because’ online or call for delivery all over Manhattan.

A Bar to Call Home


A Bar to Call Home

With 10 rotating brews on tap, many from homegrown operations like Queens’ Big Alice Brewing and the Bronx’s Gun Hill, plus a menu of comfort-food classics designed to balance the booze, it’s no wonder Time Out New York magazine named it one of the best bars on the UES.




What I’m in the mood for tonight…

As a longtime Upper East Sider, I wanted to create a wine bar for my neighborhood where dinner would be a relaxed affair and the wine list would stimulate conversations on subjects as diverse as my neighbors lives.




Worth getting up for…

Made famous at the Amagansett Farmer’s Market, this glorious creation is available daily at Eli’s Essential’s on 91st Street & Madison, 79th & 3rd, and even at E.A.T. Scrambled eggs on a brioche roll with your choice of cheeses and bacon or ham. Breakfast has always been the most important meal of the day.


What's on Eli's Mind?

Spring is in the air…..not really, but it will be soon enough. For an early riser like me it’s nice not wake up in the pitch dark, the days are definitely getting longer. We’re in the midst of the California citrus harvest and Martin; our West Coast forager is sending wonderful fruit our way. Passover is the next big event on the calendar along with Easter. Both are a big event in the stores. The bakery goes into high gear for these holidays, as does the butcher department. Whatever holiday you are celebrating, spring lamb should be on your menu.
