Welcome to Eli's World




Get Ready to Give Thanks

Getting ready for Thanksgiving early is like money in the bank. It lets you relax and is one of the best ways to enjoy the holiday. Start your menu prep with a call to the Catering Department at Eli’s, at 212-717-8100 Ext. 9. We’ll talk you through traditions and quantities, show off your skills by encouraging you to cook the parts you enjoy, and deliver just about everything else—soup to nuts plus flowers and wine. It’s the recommended way to keep you calm, cool, and smiling.




Let’s talk Turkey

A free-range turkey is a bird that is not raised in a cage and is free to graze on grasses or grains. Organic means you are getting a free-range bird raised without the use of antibiotics, steroids or pesticides, a bird raised on an organic and vegetarian diet. Our heritage turkeys are Bourbon Reds, found wandering the continent when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. Raised like an organic bird but without the organic certification, they have a rich, distinct flavor, more like a game bird, with more lean, dark meat. Confused? Call our butcher department at 212-717-8100 Ext. 6 to talk turkey!

Get Ready to Party!

Believe it or not, the holiday party-planning season is upon us, and Eli has party spaces to celebrate in. Whether you are hosting 20, 200 or any number in between, we have a room for your celebration, corporate event or special holiday dinner. Dressed up or down, these spaces are fit for a fête.




Holiday Centerpieces

Surrender to the temptation to fill your home with flowers—these textural arrangements have a picked-from-the-garden air. In this season of harvest and plenty, you’ll find lush autumn colors overflowing in Eli’s Flower Department and spilling out onto the street. Take a centerpiece home for yourself or send a bouquet to a friend or loved one. Plants, blooms by the stem and custom arrangements are all available.




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 wines by the glass would be enough to return nightly. Today, Bar ’91 offers a rotating wine list and market-inspired menu perfect for any night of the week.




Fall for Burgundy

Eli’s Table is where you want to be come fall—forget rosé and celebrate the season with menus that celebrate our famously old-world-centric cellar. This is weather that calls for the reds we love from producers who make beautiful, expressive wines, mature and on our list and ready for you to enjoy now.




Bar 87, now open

As they did on the corner of 79th & 3rd and 91st & Madison, Eli and Oliver Zabar have transformed another Eli's Essentials Grab and Go cafe into a neighborhood destination. Come 5:30pm, the corner of 87th Street & Lexington Avenue becomes Bar 87, a wine bar. Urban European in feeling—one friend has referred to the concept as "...very Milanese train station”—Bar 87 will serve a menu of market-driven small plates with the same fresh and simple sensibility that Eli has endorsed and practiced over the last 45 years.



 What's on Eli's Mind

I love Fall in New York City! For me it is the sweetest season. The Upper East Side fills up as friends, dogs, joggers and neighbors flood back into the city and transition into a higher gear. I LOVE seeing my produce departments bursting with New York State vegetables.
From now to Thanksgiving we eat more locally then at any other time of year. Join me at Eli’s in celebrating this glorious season.
