Welcome to Eli's World


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.




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.




Fall for Burgundy

Eli’s Table is where you want to be come fall—forget rosé and celebrate the season with menus that celebrate our famously old-world-centric cellar. This is weather that calls for the reds we love from producers who make beautiful, expressive wines, mature and on our list and ready for you to enjoy now.


Grab & Go


Join us for the day shift

Did you know there was a day shift at Night Shift? From 7 AM daily you can enjoy all those breakfast and lunch items that Eli calls essential – coffee of course, fresh bread and pastries, soups and salads plus a range of hot daily specials all grab and go ready for you because the cross-town bus is waiting outside the door.




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.
