Famous parent: Eli Zabar (Eli’s Table and Eli’s Essentials)
What he’s doing: Eli’s Night Shift (bar and cafe), New York City
Lessons learned: “My dad taught me to pay attention to every detail. I won’t open unless the bar is flawless,” says Oliver.
His own stamp: While Eli’s is known for its wines and upscale prices, Night Shift specializes in local craft beers and signature cocktails. “I’m giving it a young spin with an approachable menu [of bar bites], a changing roster of drinks and a rock ’n roll soundtrack,” says Oliver.
