Eli Zabar's Taste gave itself a makeover and reopened in early December as Eli's Table, right next door to Eli's. Now here's a look around the space, which keeps the M.C. Escher-esque floor, and is now decked out with a large colorful mural. There are several large party round tables and a some seats along the bar and at ice cream tables for smaller parties. The menu, which touts dishes like papparadelle with lamb bolognese and black bass with artichokes, chili and olives, is seasonal and much of the ingredients come from the grocery store. Don't overlook the wine menu, which is sprawling and offers some excellent bargains.
