Fire Up That Grill

If like Eli, your father has enough neckties (none) and is happiest standing at a grill, surprise him with great steaks this Father’s Day. An impressive selection of cuts from Eli’s butcher department are now available to ship all over the country. Cut to order and packed with dry ice, never frozen—a gift that is sure to get Dad fired up!


Dad needs a beer…

Why limit Father’s Day to just one day? Grab a New York State beer on tap with Dad at Eli’s Night Shift any day of the week and savor the little things with him. He’ll thank you for introducing him to the Night Shift Burger, and what Time Out New York called "one of the best bars on the Upper East Side".


Did you know…

that Eli’s trucks are in the Hamptons every day? Why not let them delivery your groceries to you while they are out there? 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.

Eli's List

In a lighter mood…

Warm weather brings lots of new wines to Eli’s List. Our serious relationship with the wines of Burgundy and Piedmont, does not diminish, but summer romances are not unheard of. We may flirt with peppery cabernet francs from the Loire or bright garnachas from Madrid; Mineral caricantes from Mount Etna and savory albariños from Galicia, especially with grilled fish. And then of course, Rosé and it’s irresistible allure. Visit us for brilliant wine discoveries.

 What's on Eli's Mind

I start saying "Spring is in the air…" on the first warm day in February and I keep it up till it comes true. A sort of fake-it-till- you-make-it season inducer. At this point any sign of the warmer weather ahead can thrill me—asparagus and rhubarb in the produce department, the arrival of the first soft shell crabs. All these things are reasons to feel optimistic which can often be hard on a grey, wet day, no matter the month.
