Purim Traditions

Send someone you love a surprise gift to celebrate Purim. These symbolic cookies -- the most common interpretation is that they resemble the three-cornered hat worn by the evil Hammen – are absolutely delicious. Buttery shortbread with prune, poppy seed and apricot fillings presented on a gift-wrapped tray.



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.



Brrr… it’s cold outside

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.



Liquid Gold

Start the year off on a bright note with liquid sunshine. That is an exaggeration to get your attention, but it also speaks to how happy we are to have Fall Harvest 2017 Valgiano oil in the store. We love on crisp salads of bitter winter greens or like a true Tuscan, poured over toasted slices of Eli’s Jerusalem loaf. Keep your New Year’s resolutions to cook more and eat healthier, and work more olive oil into your diet.



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?

I hate cold weather, but I love a lot of the lifestyle changes winter brings. Hearty menus accompanied by big red wines are probably the best part of winter for me. My wife makes vegetable soup once a week using up the contents of our fridge and while I can’t say I love it, I know it’s good for me. Just after Super Bowl & Valentine’s Day we will be welcoming some of my favorites like Hammentachen, Irish Soda Bread & Hot Cross Buns, all within weeks. I can gain 5 lbs. in one week eating these holiday specialties! Try them in my stores, or have my team ship them to you anywhere in the U.S., and join me in these indulgences.
