We all wish for a sweet New Year!

This year, planning for Rosh Hashanah includes grappling with the reality that the resumption of normal activity remains a far-off proposition. One way to sweeten the distance between family and friends is by sending a gift basket of New York State apples, local honey, Eli’s loaf cakes and a traditional round challah. Celebrate 5781—the sweet new year we all wish for—while maintaining the physical distancing guidelines we’ve come to accept.



Give in to temptation

For some of us this summer, the flower department at Eli’s was the only place where we experienced the changing season with pleasure. Sarah and her team kept the department filled with local flowers, fresh herbs for the kitchen and potted plants that allowed us to bring some garden into our homes. For Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, why not fill your home with flowers? And as we head into this new year, send someone you care about an arrangement with that “picked from the garden” feeling. The Flower Department at Eli’s is ready with seasonal blooms, custom arrangements, potted plants and fruit baskets.



Did you know …

… that some of the best pizza in NYC is being made at 79th and Third? Nightshift installed a pizza oven and the pies have been flying out the door. Call in your order for delivery or wander by and pick up a classic Margarita or something more seasonal like clams or chanterelles. You’ll be glad you did.

 What's on Eli's Mind

At Eli’s, as our kitchens begin to prepare for the High Holidays, it is clear that the resumption of normal activity remains a far-off proposition. I have heard it said that “Catastrophe is absolutely the mother of creativity in Jewish life,” so we are working hard to creatively deliver a traditional holiday experience to our dear customers. We are open with wide aisles, to allow for physical distancing. You can expect to find your favorite menu items for this holiday in the stores, including the often hard to find Teiglach. I’ll be the man in the blue mask, and I sure do look forward to welcoming you.
