Review of Zabar's

Zabar's
Ranked #24 of 900 Shopping in New York City

Attraction details
Reviewed September 7, 2017

Zabar's is a cross between a grocery and deli which is quite an experience. The first time you go in you will likely be overwhelmed. You should come to browse even if you don't end up buying much. The interesting options are amazing. It's like an organic chain grocer, but with much more flare.

We always come here when in nyc and it never disappoints. Love the bagel with lox and good coffee. Not a lot of seating but it always seems to work out. Love to stop at the deli next door. Great selection!

Whilst a store - Zabars has a great reputation for its variety of stock. It's almost like a sightseeing location. We loved looking at the range of goods from cheeses to cooked meats. A real authentic New York experience.

What can one say about perfection? I could and do spend hours here when I am in NYC and when I lived there years ago. From the amazing choice of foods from around the world, the appetizing without equal, the breads, cake, dairy, cheeses, candy, olives, prepared foods, and delicacies to the upstairs where you can find every imaginable gadget, piece of cooking equipment, and cookware, there is no other place like it. I have never been disappointed in anything I have bought there. It is a unique NYC experience that is not to be missed. Can't wait for my next trip there so I can bring these delicacies back to Hawaii where I now live. Oh, how I miss Zabar's!

Came here following recommendations and good reviews. Was a 20 min walk from subway but thought it would be worth it! There was a huge choice; was just looking for ready made salads/bagels to take into the park for family. 2 of us had falafel salad and the others had sandwiches or filled bagels. Also got chips and fruit and a pot of fresh olives. The olives weren't great, which was a surprise as they looked yummy! The other choices were ok but nothing special, and I think I could have got the same from other sandwich shops/delis I walked past! So in summary, if you are nearby, it has a great choice, but nothing special!
