Dine al fresco in the neighborhood


Al Fresco Season

There’s no better way to enjoy the changing of the season than at any of Eli’s al fresco dining options in the neighborhood. Grab a New York State beer on tap at Eli’s Night Shift - with the floor-to-ceiling windows, almost every seat is out doors. Or relax on Madison Avenue with a choice of 24 interesting, curated wines by the glass at Bar ’91. Al fresco dining season is happening now at Eli’s!

Time to start thinking about summer

Eli’s trucks are in the Hampton’s every day delivering fresh bread to your favorite restaurants and markets. Why not plan to let them delivery your groceries to you while they are out there on vacation? Let Eli be the solution to shopping for quality ingredients, prepared foods, hand cut meat from an old fashioned butcher and of course Eli’s Bread and pastries. A phone call is all it takes.

Eli’s Table


Good news for brunch lovers

The focus at Eli’s Table, the restaurant attached to and inspired by the market below, is seasonal yet, on weekends, the menu turns to the classic fare New Yorkers have come to expect from the name Zabar: smoked fish, the city’s best French Toast, and a bottomless bread basket, all served in a relaxed, family-centric setting. Open for dinner nightly, and weekends for brunch.

 What's on Eli's Mind

After a glorious Memorial Day weekend in the New York area, the weather still isn’t sure what it wants to do, but we are soldiering on with full summer in mind. Butterflied leg of lamb was on my grill recently, basted with rosemary branches and served with a Greek-style salad. Lots of bitter black olives, feta, radicchio and a few less-than-perfect green house tomatoes were a perfect foil to the rich, not very fatty meat. California strawberries are ending and local berries are starting to arrive. Give them a week of sun and they should be delicious from now till the 4th of July. Less then perfect berries end up in Eton Mess, an unlovely and delicious dessert that nearly everyone says yes to. And of course the rosé season is upon us. Still haven’t settled on this year’s choice, so we are doing a lot of tasting on nights warm enough to sit outside and debate the merits of one pink bottle versus another. Not a bad gig, at all!
