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 or visit to the website is all it takes.

Hot off the Press

Zabar’s, A Family Story

The true story of New York’s most iconic delicatessen and the family behind it. Everything you ever wanted to know or wondered about is here, in a delicious book with recipes. Meticulously researched and beautifully written by Lori Zabar who grew up in the store.


It’s rosé o’clock….

As the weather turns warmer and the days are longer, we love to sit outside and drink rosé with friends. Served over ice, the French call it a rosé piscine, which translates to a pink swimming pool. Find your favorite bottles at Eli’s List


Earth Day Everyday

It can be hard to connect to nature in this concrete jungle, but just inside the front door at Eli’s you’ll find a Flower Department that Mother Nature might call home. Brighten anyone’s day with flowers from Holland, the Cote d’Azur and in the current season, locally grown blooms. By the stem, in a nosegay, a lavish bouquet or centerpiece, the focus is always on carefully crafted arrangements mixed with untraditional choices that make a statement. Order bouquets ‘just because’ online or call for delivery all over Manhattan.

 What's on Eli's Mind

Heading into summer the weather is unpredictable to say the least. One thing I know for sure is that as it gets warmer and warmer we will be living outdoors more and more. The grill is summer ready and I’m starting to think about I’ll be cooking in the weeks ahead. Some protein on the grill is the easy part. Then, what I want more and more of is less cooking, more raw foods—salads and slaws, crudo drizzled with my favorite olive oils and a squirt of something acid, lots of guacamole and salsa with or without margaritas. If this all sounds ridiculously virtuous and healthy, don’t forget I’ve installed soft serve machines in some of the stores—this requires A LOT of tasting. Currently working on my café affrogato espresso over vanilla soft serve. How bad could it be?
