Rating: Solid updated deli
My 2017 New York trip kicks off (appropriately) with some Zabar Deli, specifically the Upper East Side Eat.
The menu shows of the Upper East Side Manhattan prices! Deli isn’t super cheap in LA, but you’d have to hunt around to find a $24 grilled cheese!
Cinnamon bagel with whitefish salad. Interesting how they cut one of the sides down to reduce the overall carb-factor of the two whole bagels. The bagels were those smallish chewy really good NY kind, not the oversized bland ones. The whitefish salad was solid. Not a whole lot here on the plate though for $22. Pickles were very light dill, like a grav lox marinate.
Smoked salmon, cream cheese, bagel and capers.
Egg salad on pumpernickel bagel. Side of potato salad.
Stuffed salmon. Baked with spinach and onion/fennel.
Scrambled eggs and lox with salad.
Omelet and rie.
They sell gelato and it looked fairly hand made but it was all melted and refrozen.
Solid deli in a very NY style. NY prices of course, but it’s right next to the park on Madison Ave!
