Eli Zabar's Wine Cellar: It's Not Chopped Liver
"Many New Yorkers know at least something about Eli Zabar. They can probably guess that his family opened the Upper West Side emporium that stands for classic New York eating. They may know..."
Hamptons Delivery
Summer time and the living gets easier...
Eli’s trucks are in the Hampton’s every day delivering fresh bread to your favorite restaurants and markets. Why not let them deliver your groceries to you while they are out there?
Let them fight the traffic so you don’t have to.
Summer Nights
As a longtime Upper East Sider, I wanted to open a wine bar for the neighborhood and on summer nights nothing gives me more pleasure then to see the red tables on ninety-first street filled with people drinking rosé.
What’s brewing on 79th & Third ?
When Eli Zabar started thinking about opening Eli’s Night Shift, a craft beer-centric bar on the Upper East Side, he worried that he didn’t know enough about the brews or the young clientele he hoped to attract. Then the 72-year-old realized he knew someone who did: his 24-year-old son, Oliver. Together with veteran bartender Nathan Gurr (The Handy Liquor Bar) they’ve turned the Third Avenue corner of 79th street into a little slice of Brooklyn.
What's on Eli's Mind?
I thrive on change and with no new projects on my plate, I’ve enjoyed circling around my neighborhood and giving my full attention to small projects in my older stores. EAT is over 40 years old and needs some tender loving care. I’ve wanted to renovate the Vinegar Factory for a while, making the store smaller and more concentrated on fresh ingredients. That’s allowed me to make the café larger and I hope more attractive and more comfortable. The upstairs party space is getting a full facelift. It will be what I call a black box party space; ready to become whatever your imagination wants to make of it.
