Episode Summary

EDIT
Meet Saul Zabar, the co-owner of Zabar's, a famous specialty food shop on the Upper West Side of New York City. Over the decades, Zabar's has developed a reputation for high quality product and service when it comes to smoked fish. Their smoked fish department is one of the busiest fish counters in the city, hand-slicing and selling thousands of pounds of smoked fish to loyal customers every week. It's a reputation Zabar's is very, very proud of, and Saul believes a lot of it has to do with his keen taste for smoked fish. Not long ago, I had the rare opportunity to join Saul during his weekly visit to ACME Smoked Fish in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, to see how he hand-selects fish for his shop's fish counter. ACME is Zabar's main smoked fish supplier - sourcing, smoking, packaging and delivering over 90% of Zabar's smoked fish product. According to ACME, it's a "family" tradition and a very special relationship that began over 50 years ago, a weekly visit that often comes with a basket of Zabar's fresh bagels and rugelach. Enjoy this special behind-the-scenes experience. Thanks for watching food. curated.! Happy Eating!moreless
