    I am a HUGE fan of their oils, esp their Italian EVOO and aged Balsamic. so so good

  2. Oh, dear Lord in heaven. In my perfect world, I’d walk out of Zabar’s with the “Zabar’s Is New York Box” so I could try it all!

  3. Leslie Gislason says:

    Kosher Parm! I love it with just about everything.

  4. Amy paice says:

    I love zabar’s I go everytime I visit NYC from cape cod. My favorite is the sable. And James behind the appetizing counter

  5. Kandi M. Siegel says:

    When I lived in Boston, we use to go to NY all the time and always made a stop at Zabar’s. Their pastry far surpasses any other. To actually single out something would be hard to do because everytime we went there, I got something different and it was always scrumptious!!! Any chance Zabar’s can move to Melbourne, Florida to be closer to me????

  6. Christina says:

    I am a New Yorker and moved to Virginia. The Whitefish salad is to die for! Love the potato knishes, smoked salmon, bagels, chocolate rugelach and Zabar’s French Roast. We miss Zabar’s so much!!!

  7. Dee Pedigo says:

    Love- Love the Cinnamon Rugelach :)

    As the daughter of a shiksa living in Pennsylvania Dutch country, I’ll take the smoked sturgeon or REAL corned beef!

  12. Kathy says:

    I love everything at Zabar’s. As a kid my dad would come home from work with appetizing from Zabar’s. The lox was always such a treat.

  13. Evan D. says:

    Definitely the knishes. I took home half a dozen to FL last time.

  14. Kristina Hudson says:

  19. Jeff Bilkanich says:

    I lived on the upper Westside for 14 yrs & the company I worked for made deliverys od printed paper products 2 x/wk; Living in Az ince ’03 I miss Zabar’s & their neighbor H&H bagels. My 2 favorite items @Zabar’s was the high quality lox & whitefish!

    p.s. i’m drooling all over my p.c. just thinking about deli items @Zabar’s!!

  20. Julie Levitt says:

    In 1976 I lived in NYC. I was 18 yr. I used to walk down to Zabars and just enjoy the sights, aromas and then bring some rugelach home to my tiny apartment to have with coffee. For me its gotta be the rugelach.

  21. Becca says:

    Where do I start??

    I love the caponata!
    Also the nova salmon (lox) and the sourdough rye.

  22. Debbie Kirkbride says:

    Your coffee is to die for !!!!

  23. DAVE SMITH says:

    The smoked salmon…definitely the salmon…most especially here in the flyover states.

  24. Ruth says:

    I have many favorites…I love their cheese department (all of it!), their baked goods are second to none (mmm scones & rugelachs), I order their coffee and have it shipped to my house – I will not drink any other… I could go on and on but these are my top favorites!

  25. Marcia says:

    hmmmmm, baked salmon on a garlic bagel with chive cheese with or without a slice of tomato…now i want one, i mean NOW!!!!!!!!!

  26. Dalmax says:

    Being a Jewess living in Maine has its drawbacks, the most notable of which is REALLY good baked goods (unless you try to do it yourself).

    But for something TO DIE FOR from Zabar’s, I’ll take the Poppy Seed Roll any day of the week. It is just about the only food item anywhere on the planet that I will mail order!

    When my biz associate (who lives 10 blocks from Zabar’s) comes to Maine I beg her to leave room in her suitcase for some Zabar’s.

  27. claire bigelow says:

    everything at Zabars looks delicious.. could you possibly put a pastrami on marble rye in there too ?? ( dont i wish )

  28. Mom2Schnauzers says:

    I love their Whitefish Salad. Being the shiksa from the south, my then-fiance/now-hubby took me to NYC. It was the weekend of the massive blackout. On our first morning in the city, he said, “I’ll be right back” and left the hotel room. When he returned, he had fresh bagels and whitefish salad from Zabar’s (which I had never had before…and promptly loved)! Now, every time we visit NYC, we have to go to Zabar’s for whitefish salad (among other things)!

  29. maria says:

    booo so i accidentally messed this up when i got the link hope i get another email =/

  30. Marcia says:

    I’ve always heard their bagels were to die for.

  31. Allison says:

    I love that I can get an array of Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery products at Zabar’s! As a recent transplant to NYC from Vermont, it’s wonderful to get a taste of home.

  32. Sandra Rosenberg- Andreolas says:

    Everything I have had has been delicious; but the rugelach is amazing. Can’t get that in south Florida!

  33. Beth Deliver says:

    KASHA KNISHES – to die for!!! Miss N.Y. & Zabar’s!

  34. faigaleh says:

  37. melinda coons says:

    I love everything that I have read and heard about ZABAR’s! Unfortunately, living in Colorado Springs, CO, the choice is very limited! Look forward to trying at least a bagel!!!

  38. Linda says:

    The coffee…we have been drinking Zabars coffee in our family since I was a little girl, our favorite is the French Italian…but Eli’s Health bread comes in a close second. That is my favorite!

  39. sandra Court says:

    Black and White cookies!! Hands down favorite!

  40. Sheila says:

  42. Rochelle Kitchen says:

    My favorite items are the coffee, the large egg by weight caviar,chopped liver, and vegetarian chopped liver.Of course there are many more that I love, like the cheeses,and bagels,jams,appetizer fishes and so on.
