  • Zabar's is an institution and still remains an excellent place to shop for grocery essentials as well as amazing prepared foods and a huge variety of smoked fish, baked goods, excellent coffee, and everything in between. It's usually busy but always manageable with good numbered systems for counter service. Some items may be pricey but great deals abound, especially in their huge cheese selection and in their prepared foods.
  • Overrated, overpriced. Rude, immature cashiers who refuse to say thank you or have a nice day to customers. So overrated. So ma y superior places within just a few blocks so unless you are looking for kosher goodies or special cheeses, don't bother!
  • Breakfast is pre cooked and packaged in plastic containers that they throw in the microwave. You eat eggs and bacon out of a hot plastic container. The coffee however was good.
  • I'm all about Zabar's when I'm in New York City! Enjoy a cuppa Joe before you grab a basket. I've found so many interesting and useful gadgets every time I stop by. I go crazy for all the spices, olives and cheese. Don't skip out on going downstairs as well ☺
  • This place deserves the name Emporium. more than a supermarket. Such a selection of great food. A friend introduced me to these nice cakes from there.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
