One of Oprah’s favorite things…
Sometimes it’s hard to find an original gift to celebrate the Festival of Light. Eli Zabar, New York’s favorite baker understood this when he set out to braid a traditional challah into a menorah. Some call him twisted, but Oprah clearly understood how inspired he was. She named it one of her holiday favorites. Chanukah starts on Sunday, December 6th, this year, surprise your friends and family with an order for any one of the 8 great nights.
UES Brews
In October, the newest Eli’s Essentials opened at 189 East 79th street on the corner of Third Avenue with all the usual grab-and-go favorites that New Yorker’s have come to expect—great coffee, breakfast pastries, sandwiches, salad bar, soup bar, etc. What’s different about this location is that at 6pm it turns into Eli’s Night Shift, a beer bar/restaurant featuring a lineup of local craft beers, milk punches and a year-round shandy list. Casual, comfort food from an open kitchen is designed to be enjoyed alongside the drinks selection. The current craft beer selection features draft beer from Gun Hill Brewing Co., Grimm Brewery, Big Alice Brewery, Flagship, Yonkers Brewery, Transmitter Brewery, and Sixpoint.
The Gift of Food is Always in Good Taste
Now is the moment to order your holiday hampers stuffed with Eli’s house-baked classics and pantry essentials, festooned with ribbons, lined with a tea towel, and packed to order. Brighten any basket with the addition of a bottle of wine or spirits. A most suitable gift for friends, family, clients, and business associates.
The Party Season is upon us…
… and Eli’s Wine Bar at 1270 Madison on 91st street is ready for you to host a private party! Drinks and hors d’oeuvres downstairs then move up to the balcony for dinner. The two-storied space happily accommodates 50 for a seated dinner and 90 for a more casual event. This holiday season; book Eli’s Essentials Wine Bar for your own private fête.
What's on Eli's Mind?
I came late to the internet, I still use a Blackberry, and I don’t shop online (in fact, I don’t shop at all), but that doesn’t mean I don’t pay attention to the way everyone gets information, settles arguments, and shops for everything under the sun. I wanted a website that was easier and more fun than the one I’d had, and I think the results of our redesign are terrific. I hope you’ll explore, shop and most important, use the map to find a store near you. Do come in and say hello!
