LORI ZABAR is an art, decorative arts, and architectural historian, an historic preservationist, and a retired attorney. Now an independent curator and consultant, she was for many years a researcher in the American Wing and the Modern & Contemporary Department of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
"Lori Zabar's wonderful book is the story of America. Her family
went from Eastern European immigrants to wildly successful
businesspeople in just a few generations. I love this book, and the
Zabar's recipes are a delicious bonus!"
-Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa
"A must-read for anyone who has ever stepped foot in this New York City landmark, and a way for everyone else to find out what they've been missing."
-Nicolas Heller ("NewYorkNico")
"When I think of New York City and the impact of the food culture here, it goes without saying that Zabar's is at the top of the list. You truly can't say you have experienced New York City without having gone to the world-famous delicatessen on the Upper West Side."
-Marcus Samuelsson, chef, author, and restaurateur
