I love this store - they carry food items from all over the world and from different ethnic background. Some of the items are expensive but there is food at all price levels. The store is nice and pleasant but can get crowded at times.

Outstanding shop. An education. Budget to spend more time & money than you first imagined when shopping at Zabar's. It is staggeringly brilliant. It's worth going just to look. We are thankful not to be a stocktaker at this super market. The Strudwicks of Worcester

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. 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,
