Welcome to Eli's World


Home Shop


Summering in the Hamptons? We are too….

Eli’s trucks are in the Hampton’s every day; why not let them deliver your groceries to you while they are out there? Place your order for prepared foods, hand-cut meat, quality ingredients and of course Eli’s Bread and pastries with our Home Shop Department. You’ll have your order the following day without driving, hunting for a parking place or tearing your hair out.




It’s rosé o’clock...

When the weather is warm, the days are long and we can sit outside, all we want to drink is rosé. If we can’t be on vacation everyday, we’ll drink rosé. Our preference is for Domaine de la Citadelle from Provence. We love it so much it’s the only one we offer in our restaurants and in our wine store. Served over ice, the French call it a rosé piscine, which translates to pink swimming pool. Santé.




Be the Best House Guest…

If you’re staying with friends this summer, don’t arrive empty handed. Follow Eli’s lead and stock their pantry with an Eli-approved collection of pristine ingredients, house-baked classics and hand-selected sweet and savory essentials. EV olive oil, coffee beans, French cheeses and fresh bread will make you a popular addition to any weekend get-a-way.




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

It is now officially summer. The season for New Yorkers’ weekends out of the city, of grilling everything, of ice cream and watermelon and the eagerly anticipated first local tomatoes. For me it means an end to a bumper crop of my rooftop tomatoes and a switch to the tri-state area’s addictive tomatoes. I love to check out local farm stands to see what’s new and good. For those of us still in the city, it means evenings outdoors wherever we can find a table. Mine is at 91st and Madison—there’s not a more pleasant corner in the city to sip rosé, greet neighbors, and get to know the dogs of the UES.
