Festival of Lights

Wherever 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.


We heard a rumor — parties are back.

If you’re in the mood to host one, a call to the catering department at Eli’s could be a good place to start your planning. You’ll find a menu for our favorite party buffet on page 4 of this year’s holiday guide. Recommendations about what to serve, flowers to decorate with and wines to pair are all part of the party package. Advice on how many and how much you’ll want are easy for our party pro’s. Reach the Catering Department at Eli’s at 212-717-8100 ext. 9


Tis the season….

We encourage you to think of caviar and crème fraiche as holiday essentials—serve them all on their own, on our crispy potato pancakes or in the omelet. It’s the perfect gift—2 ounces along with the correct spoon to serve it with—mother of pearl, bone or horn—never metal, not even your best silver.


Worth getting up for…

Fall weekends are for brunching—and by that we mean meeting friends and sitting at outdoor tables with good coffee and a menu where you can’t decide what you want because there are too many choices you love. This happens on Saturdays and Sundays at Eli’s Bar ’91 where the everyday grab and go menu gets serious and there’s a served brunch. Breakfast has always been the most important meal of the day, but brunch is often the most fun.


The Gift of Food is Always in Good Taste

Now is the moment 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, family, clients, and business associates.

 What's on Eli's Mind

Fall is for me, the sweetest season. I LOVE seeing the Upper East Side fill up as friends, dogs, joggers and best of all customers enjoy the good weather days of fall in the city. 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 season.
