We picked up bagels, lox, several kinds of cheese (fresh burrata!), knishes, black and white cookies, chocolate, and drinks from downstairs, and then grabbed knives and a cutting board from housewares upstairs, before heading off into The Ramble for a delicious picnic in Central Park. So yummy... I wanted to stock up both for us and as "mitbringsel" (gifts to... More

This must-see foodie heaven is a go-too destination for gourmets and impassioned consumers looking for hard-to-find implements, ingredients, cheeses, meats, breads, and pretty much whatever you need. Massive store has the biggest collection of olive barrels I have ever seen in my life.

Zabar’s coffee shop was conveniently located to our hotel in Upper West Side so it was an easy choice for the first morning’s breakfast. The coffee was good and the bagels were chewy. Husband wanted to have egg on a bagel first but they only serve sandwiches that can be heated. But our choice of bagels and coffee, did their... More

We are from a town of 200,000 so we do not have the great grocery stores like this.I enjoyed buying some Italian products that I can not get back home. It is very crowed but had so much neat stuff

Zabar's is a must for any New York trip! We got fare for our breakfast here each morning and all of it was great. It's a NYC institution.

We picked up brunch fixings for a group of friends at Zabars. Lots of choices, but we had to get bagels, lox and cream cheese. Check out their selection of prepared foods, but don't miss the kitchen tools upstairs.

Not only is it the best deli anywhere in terms of cheese, meats, breads but it has a wonderful kitchen equipment department on the second floor, selling everything from a simple spatula to sophisticated cappucino machines. The staff is knowledgeable and will guide you to whaterever you are looking... More

We had already ordered Zabar's gift-baskets online to send to friends and family in NYC, and these were so successful, and so well received, that the anticipation was at bursting-point when I recently got to New York and a chance for a "hands-on" experience at this temple of pastrami. I grabbed a couple of seats at the modest eating counter... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
