This Upper West Side institution—founded in 1934 by Louis Zabar, a Ukrainian immigrant—began as a smoked-fish shop. Now 20,000 square feet, the gourmet mecca boasts a wide selection of prepared kosher foods, coffee, cooking utensils and cheeses, as well its trademark bagels, made with malt barley flour according to a signature house recipe.
