Synonymous with great food and drink in Manhattan, today’s guest on In the Drink, Eli Zabar was seemingly destined for notoriety in the culinary world. Host Joe Campanale chats up the NYC legend about his interest in wine and how exactly this passion began, plus thoughts behind his carefully curated (and sizable!) wine list featured at Eli’s Essentials Wine Bar and details on Eli’s Table as well as Eli’s List. Eli also shares his business savvy and the importance of staying true to your neighborhood and how he strives to highlight old school wines with old school prices. Tune in for a wonderful conversation that covers a little bit of everything. This program was brought to you by Michter’s.
