  • No, I would not go back!

over priced for what it is and arrogant personnel. there are better places to shop than here. staff is rude, especially behind the deli counters. some packaged food had expired labels but were still stocked on shelves. look carefully before you buy something. pastry was soggy and tasteless. No thanks Zabars...you're living in the past.

The best place in NYC for appliances

They know what's best, they have almost everything you want in stock and their prices are unbeatable, so Zabar's is generally where I go for appliances - unless I find the item on e-bay for less. The staff can always find someone who'll know which toaster works best and where to find the sternum for the fondue set. Their prices are discounted, so there's no reason to buy at department stores. They'll take returns and give you a store credit. Even for expensive espresso machines, this is your best bet.

Zabar's is a state of mind.A most unusual Store.A Deli,Market,a nosherie,a kitchen utensil store,and bakery all rolled into one.Limos from the tristate area double park outside while its passengers run in to get a piece of nice Lox,or a Challah,some cheese, a bit of Halvah... you get the idea.Get there early for your Yom-Kippur supplies.. Heck get there early anytime. It gets crowded.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
