E.A.T. Restaurant Review

: Eli Zabar's Upper East Side café is a longtime favorite of the neighborhood's vibrant ladies who lunch crowd. E.A.T.'s breads and baked goods are sold throughout the city, but one of the best selections is here --- you can order an assorted basket for the table or buy a loaf at the take-out counter. Prepared sandwiches are made on E.A.T.'s crusty baguettes or dense rye bread, and there are usually at least 30 salads and antipasti from which to choose. For dinner, pair caviar with blinis or potato pancakes, and follow with a variety of seafood, poultry or beef dishes like crab cakes, chicken paillard or pot roast. It’s best to do take-away as prices increase significantly for eating in the dining room.
