Welcome to Eli's World



How to build a basket…

Now is the time to order your holiday hampers stuffed with Eli’s house-baked classics and pantry essentials, festooned with ribbons, lined with a tea towel, and packed to order. Brighten any basket with the addition of a bottle of wine or spirits. A most suitable gift for friends, faraway family members, clients, and business associates.

Flower shop


Tis The Season ...

If you are hosting in this hectic holiday season give in to the temptation to fill your house with flowers. If you are the invited guest, sending a plant, cut flowers or an arrangement before the event is a very nice way to say thank you. Whether hosting or guesting, a visit to the flower department at Eli’s is a good place to get started.

Eli’s List


Time to sparkle and bubble

At Eli’s List we love sparkling wines and we don’t just mean Champagne. We love bubbles at the beginning of the evening to signal that our intentions are festive, and we believe that many of these bottles will carry the night. For a full discussion of what we like to pair with sparkling wine stop into Eli’s List and join the conversation.



The gift of food…

…is always in good taste, which is why, year after year, New Yorkers turn to Eli Zabar for gifts that they know will bring pleasure. Themed to suite pretty much anyone who eats, we encourage you to browse the choices and pick, for each person on your list, the basket that you think best suits their personality or needs.



Festival of Lights

Where ever your plans may take you this festive season, the traditions of the holiday can come along. Send a Chanukah basket to friends and family and send one to yourself you’ll say thank you when it’s time to light that first candle.

 What's on Eli's Mind

Holidays and cold weather coming at you fast? How best to prepare? Down vest on, hearty menus planned and big red wines are my go-to remedy for any madness the season may deliver. And speaking of deliveries, have you ordered holiday hampers to be shipped far and wide? Catering to be delivered when you need it? Wine? Check! Flowers? Check! These are the tools I use to get through December. We’ll discuss our plans for 2020 later in the month.
