Welcome to Eli's World



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.

New Year’s Resolutions…

…are made to be broken, but let’s try for the month of January to eat more green vegetables. Start with a big pot of soup: onions, leeks, celery and carrots sautéed till beyond golden, chard stems, cubes of squash and shredded Savoy cabbage added with water or chicken stock, once they are soft, add baby spinach or kale or bok choy, let them cook until just wilted. Better yet, call Milton and have all of the above delivered to your door.



Up next on the celebration calendar

Eli’s been watching the Super Bowl with his high school football buddies FOREVER. If Super Bowl Sunday is a national holiday at your house, check out our complete catering menu for the great day, or join us at Eli’s Night Shift to watch on the jumbo screen while munching Night Shift’s jumbo wings.



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.



Prepare for Valentine’s Day

Get a head start on Valentine’s Day this year, and call Eli’s florists to discuss your arrangement. At Eli’s flower shop, premium flowers are flown in daily from the Dutch Holland Auction and the Cote d’Azur, and offerings always showcase the best of the season. Add flowers, champagne and chocolates to your Valentine’s Day gift basket for the perfect gift.



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.



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's on Eli's Mind?

I hate cold weather, but I love a lot of the life style 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. If I’m home when she is cooking I’ll throw some Parmesan rinds into the broth and let them stew a while. Try it yourself and let me know what you think!
