Visiting the city and had to visit Zabar's. This is not a fancy spot, but rather a line where you order and pay before sitting down. There are a few dozen stools where you share space with others. Don't plan to sit together if you're a large group. On to the food! We each had a bowl of matzoh ball... More

I was sent for the hot, NY pastrami sandwich. (This is the only place of three 'Zabar's to get a hot pastrami.) After maps.googlescum first took me to E.A.T. (owned by Eli Zabar) where there is no pastrami, I walked to the real Zabar's. The sandwich shop is right on the corner. NO PASTRAMI HERE EITHER. I walked out the... More

When I lived in New York I could not live more than one day without Zabars's. Just the best choice of great food, especially prepared dishes. Now as a tourist, I cannot resit going in there: a true New York experience and do not miss on buying their Nova Scottia salmon+ a bagel+ cream cheese just the best!

I can never go to Panera again, this places bagels and coffee were to die for. So glad I could fit the coffee in my carry on! Highly recommend checking out the grocery area, so many things to eat. Cheese and meat. OMG yum

It was a good thing that I was full from breakfast or my pocketbook would have suffered far more. This store has a great variety of prepared foods, desserts and specialties.

Stopped here to pick up breakfast for family on trip to NYC. Got lox, bagels and cream cheese to make at my daughter's apartment. The meal was delicious. Zabar's is a high volume business, and everything offered there is first rate and fresh.

Just the best selection of fresh, delicious food served with a smile, on the Upper West Side! Try the strudel and home smoked salmon pate; buy many bags of their coffee!

It goes without saying that the bagels, hot chocolate and pastries of various kinds are wonderful and reasonably priced in this pricey city. What struck me the most was the sense of community, clients who were clearly regulars and well known. The staff showed gracious manners to everyone. Though busy (and it does get crowded) everyone was treated with kindness... More

We had to stop here because it's Zabar's. We solely sought out the chocolate babka to shove into our luggage and then shovel into our mouths with friends that weren't lucky enough to join us... but lucky enough to agree to watch our dog. So, so good. Buy some, then buy some more. They deliver nationally, so yeah, we'll be... More

Ordered a cappuccino with almond milk and one Zabars famous Bagels and lox. It was delicious!!! Shared a table with a few others that seemed to be regular guests as they all new each other and everyone that came and out while I was sitting there. A great way to start a freezing New York City day.

Upper West Side

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 theatre 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.
