Welcome to Eli's World




Fire Up That Grill

If like Eli, your father has enough neckties (none) and is happiest standing at a grill, then getting him “grill ready” is the best gift you can give him this Father’s Day.

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.



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.

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

Spring is here even if it’s not white shorts weather yet. A cold spring makes us all impatient for summer which I know will be here soon enough. While we are waiting there is plenty to enjoy. We have been harvesting the greenhouse tomatoes since early May and they are pretty impressive. So plentiful that I’ve put fried green tomatoes on the menu at Eli’s Table, along with the ripe red ones and our house-made mozzarella. This harvest should keep us satisfied until summer starts sending us her sun-warmed treasures. Tons of great produce from California, sweet peas and fava beans, spring onions and ramps plus, as long as they last, the worlds best strawberries from Swanton Farms. We have local blooms in the flower department and greenhouse herbs for planting in your urban garden—even if it’s only a pot on a window sill, it’s still lovely to be able to snip a bit of fresh basil for your pasta at the end of a long day.
