The smell of freshly baked bread wafts through the air as customers fill the aisles anxious to get their order at Zabar's. This busy store is the epitome of New York, with its delicious foods and constant buzz. Fresh chocolate croissants are plated for breakfast and cheese from every corner of the world is on display and offered in samples. The store offers a constant supply of fresh bagels, deli meats, gift baskets, specialty pantry items, coffee, and smoked fish. The family-run business started as a humble stall at a farmer's market in the early 1920s, and today represents a New York landmark frequently referenced in pop culture and on television shows.

  • I'd only ordered online from Zabar's, so I was really excited to visit the shop in person. I had no idea it was a big market in addition to being a deli. I left with a few babkas--you can't beat them. 
  • A classic of the Upper West Side. A great place for fine meats, fishes, fresh bread, cheese and olives. It's a bit over priced (naturally) and over hyped. However, they do sometimes have sales at the end of the day such as half price sushi and sandwiches and deals on fresh bread and bagels. Worth visiting for specialty items or at least once.
  • A classic, Manhattan/NYC staple grocery and specialty store - Zabar's has some of the best items in the city (but at a price). You can find some great deals here if you come often and take the time to check out the items. Their cheese / olive selection is amazing and so is their bread section. My favorite Zabar's trip includes: freshly squeezed orange juice (one of the best I've ever tasted), a cheese selection and a French baguette. Purchase all three and your set for a picnic nearby on the Hudson. Their coffee beans are also great. If you go up to their mezzanine, you can find some kitchen housewares.
  • Wow! All varieties of food to be bought. It's always busy but the staff are always willing to help you find what you are looking for. You can spend several hours shopping there. Check out the cookware section upstairs also.
  • A great variety of real New York foods... with a Jewish bent. Some of the best lox in the city (maybe second to Russ & Daughters). Prices are high and the store is often crowded and difficult to navigate. They have a great selection of unique housewares upstairs, but also difficult to navigate and help is limited.
  • Delightful variety of goods from around the world. Great place to visit for any home cook or foodie, just to appreciate the options and quality of choices. Cramped layout and high prices.
