This Upper West Side staple has also appeared on episodes of Will & Grace, The West Wing, How I Met Your Mother, 30 Rock, and Castle. 

Beware the weekend crowds at this Upper West Side delicatessen! Frequented for its bagels, smoked fish, and cheeses, Zabar’s has been in the neighborhood since 1934. It began as a counter at a market run by Louis and Lillian Zabar. Their children succeeded them, and Zabar’s has remained a family-run business.
