In 1981, Sarabeth and her husband Bill Levine opened a small retail store on the upper west side of Manhattan. The store started out as a bakery and jam shop, where customers could see the jams being cooked in a kettle and ladled into jars. The aroma of fresh baked muffins, pastries, cookies and cakes wafted across Amsterdam Avenue luring customers into the tiny space to savor the goodies emerging fresh baked from her ovens. Sarabeth's restaurants are now serving savory meals in nine different locations, and Sarabeth's legendary fruit preserves are available in stores around the world.

Our Fans are Talking

The only jams I have in my house are Sarabeth's.

I love every flavor she makes, but the orange apricot marmalade is the one I reach for first.

Oprah Winfrey
O, The Oprah Magazine, Dec. 2008 issue

Many well maintained urbanites confess they're fools for these charming bakeries and brunch musts which turn out the freshly minted likes of scrumptious scones, marvelous muffins and other goodies best paired with luscious, homemade jams; the picturesque country kitchen setups are a bit precious atmospherically (and pricewise), but the whole world knows they're special so get on line early to beat the crowd on Sunday mornings.

Zagat Survey of New York City Gourmet Shopping and Entertaining, 2008

Today I discovered how the food in heaven must taste. My wife and I ate two raspberry bread puddings at your restaurant in Chelsea Market. It was so unbelievably good that we almost went back for more. I cook and bake quite well myself but that today was pure ectasy.

I ate at Lord and Taylor today, ordered the Cobb Salad. I order Cobb salads all the them! Yours was absolutely the very best...I loved the surprising cucumber, the super wheat berries (what are they...YUM YUM YUM), the chicken instead of turkey, the dressing...who knew basil would improve the basic buttermilk dressing so much!!!! I am so delighted with your food...can't wait to go back...we live in Virginia but come often.

Many thanks, Rosie R.

It was such a pleasure to discover a Sarabeth's right across the street from the house we recently rented for my daughter's wedding. As expected, the cuisine in your Sarabeth's was just as great as the food in the restaurants in New York!

Thanks again for the great food made famous by Sarabeth in New York and created again in Key West! My best to you and good luck with your restaurant.
