Most head chefs are chosen for their merit, skills, and ease in the kitchen. But at the new Alpine-themed restaurant, Table, Donkey and Stick, partners Shin Thompson and Matt Sussman—the former chef and general manager of Bonsoiree respectively—decided to go one step further in finding their next food collaborator, which is why they pitted six local chefs against each other to create a pop-up dinner menu of hearty European cuisine. Along with the general publics vote, Sussman and Thompson have since declared to Grub Street Chicago that Scott Manely—a protégé of Paul Virant—is the newest chef to join their crew. Sussman also mentioned to Grub Street Chicago that the new eatery—named after a Brothers Grimm fable—features a menu of "simple, honest food" that includes sausages and charcuterie. Freshly-made breads, from rustic rye baguettes to pretzel rolls, are also on hand to soak up the juices of hand-craved wild boar while glasses filled with Koval brandy warm the stomach and make the soul feel like Little Red Riding Hood stole Rapunzels hair and sold it to the Big Bad Wolf.
More than 50 years on, Manny's Cafeteria and Delicatessen remains a family affair for the Raskins. The restaurant is now in the hands of the third and fourth generation of the family, whose members work to maintain their tradition of crafting homestyle Jewish-American dishes. Within a classic cafeteria setting decorated with news clippings, photos, and thumb-wrestling second graders, chefs draw from practiced recipes for matzo-ball soup, housemade chocolate phosphates, and chewy latke. The sandwiches, which were lauded by Time Out Chicago, include Manny's famous corned beef, made with a hulking three-quarter-pound pile of juicy brisket. As if that weren't incentive enough, Manny's offers free parking behind the restaurant.
Sometimes, it can be a scramble to find a bar to watch the big game. What if there aren't any tables open? What if you can't see the TV? That's hardly a problem at State Restaurant?not only is it massive, but every seat in the house has a view thanks to the 124 HDTVs. And it's easy to pass two halves, three periods, four quarters, or nine innings here, as their beer list includes nearly 100 taps and more than a dozen bottled brews. There's plenty of tempting options from the food menu as well, thanks to upscale dishes such as tuna tartare, quinoa salad, and truffle burgers. But State is far from stuffy?they also serve wings, nachos, and white cheddar curds, in honor of their beloved Wisconsin Badgers and probably Little Miss Muffet.
When owner May Ramli first opened the doors to Sultan’s Market, she stocked the shelves with hot dogs and candy bars—thinking her customers only wanted snacks they could easily recognize. This theory was soon proven wrong, however, when a batch of homemade hummus she brought in on a lark instantly sold out. Recognizing that people were interested in exotic offerings, Ramli and her family changed their entire business. They now serve up Mediterranean eats such as crispy falafel pitas, creamy baba ganuj, and kefta kabobs shaved right off the spit. The shop’s BYOB policy allows clients to crack open a bottle of their favorite beverage as they bite into hummus-topped falafels and enjoy the view from their exotically decorated booth.
