Welcome to Eli's World




Celebrate 5779 with Eli’s

For Eli the Jewish holidays mark the official end of summer and the true beginning of fall, and this year they are happening right on the heels of Labor Day. Let Eli’s Catering Department do the work to prepare for the arrival of 5779 so you can enjoy the last days of summer. For Rosh Hashanah and break the fast menus call Eli’s catering team at (212) 717-8100 Ext. 9 today. We’ll talk you through your holiday menus in no time at all.


Grocery Delivery


Back to School

Life gets hectic when the kids go back to school. Eli’s grocery shopping team will manage your food orders and deliver your groceries, flowers, wine and more, straight to your door, seven days a week. Fall is the time to get back to familiar routines and habits. It also happens to be the moment of exceptionally bountiful harvests at Eli’s. So if you prefer, come in and cruise our aisles. You’ll find a lot to love.




For a Sweet New Year…

Send an Apple & Honey Basket to loved ones near and far with an Eli’s gift basket of New York State apples, local honey, loaf cakes and a traditional round challah. Baskets and other holiday sweets can be ordered online and shipped all over the country, or by calling (212) 717-8100 Ext. 9.




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.




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

September for me is the sweetest season. I LOVE seeing the Upper East Side fill up as friends, dogs, joggers and neighbors flood back into the city and transition into their urban lives. I LOVE seeing my produce departments bursting with New York State vegetables. There is no time of the year when we can eat more locally and I love the thrum of anticipation I feel for the holidays ahead, each one a celebration of this glorious season.
