Sable’s is everything you’d imagine a classic smoked fish and Jewish appetizing shop would be—narrow, crowded, and lined with deli cases loaded with legendary smoked fish, spreads, Maine lobster salad, sandwich makings, and more. It’s a bustling site any day of the week, as its reputation is no secret; Photos of owners Danny and Kenny Sze with major celebrities prove the point that this is the spot for an unparalleled selection of New York-style appetizing.

About The Food

Considered one of the best sources for smoked fish (20 types!) anywhere, this is where celebrities, business tycoons, and practically everyone else in Manhattan come for outstanding smoked salmon, sturgeon, whitefish, and sable. The secret to their success is simple: Brother owners Kenny and Danny Sze, who make a daily pilgrimage to New York’s finest smoked fish houses, are pros who know how to tell superior selections based on aroma and color. Sable’s is equally famous for its signature Maine lobster salad, whitefish salad, legendary H&H bagels, melt-in-your-mouth “black & whites,” and more.

Meet The Owner

Sable’s owner Kenny Sze emigrated from Hong Kong as a teenager in 1972. Speaking no English, he learned the Jewish deli business from the ground up in a New York City bagel shop before moving on to famed gourmet food emporium Zabar’s. Manning the smoked fish counter, he learned to properly fillet herrings, secure the best fish from local smokehouses, and speak Yiddish—a requirement for his Jewish customers who consider banter key to the shopping experience. 12 years later—to the joy and relief of Upper East Siders—he opened Sable’s.
