Crowded, chaotic, interesting slice of NY life with a huge variety of stuff on offer. Picked up a treasure trove of stuff for lunch in Central Park. They have plastic cutlery to pick up by the checkouts if you need it.

Wanted to go to this great store to bring stuff back home to our friends. We used to live on the Upper West Side so we know it well. You can't go wrong with anything you buy there. But one caveat: Dear Check Out People: Try actually acknowledging your customers. Visitors will remember your demeanor far more than what they... More

This store has a lot of different things inside. I went there about an hour before closing looking for a dessert to take home. They have a large selection of pastries, pastas, meats, and breads.

My wife and I have been to Zabar's twice, once in July, 2015, during which we tasted their whole range of smoked salmon, and again this month, July, 2016. We actually walked to Eli Zabar's on Madison thinking it might have the same product as the Broadway Zabar's. As we discovered, the Madison Avenue Zabar's is owned by the brother... More

In town visiting friends and stopped by Zabar's cafe for breakfast. Six years ago before we moved from Manhattan, it was one of our favorite places to get a coffee and croissant. I am sad to report the quality of the coffee has gone downhill. My cappuccino was made way too hot, scalding the beans and bringing out an ashy... More

Good place for locals and visitors alike. Not much seating, but we found a spot on the long communal table. Raspberry scones are delicious!

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.
