At Manny's Cafeteria and Delicatessen, fourth-generation Raskins work alongside their parents to maintain their family's legacy of crafting homestyle Jewish-American fare for more than half a century. Within a classic cafeteria setting decorated with news clippings, photos, and thumb-wrestling second graders, chefs draw from practiced recipes for matzo-ball soup, house-made chocolate phosphates, chewy latke, and sandwiches lauded by Time Out Chicago. Hand-decorated cookies, made with the same care as the corned beef, are composed of high-quality ingredients and real butter, and arranged in themed baskets. Manny's famous corned beef, piled with three-quarters of a pound of juicy brisket, woos tongues without writing a love poem in chocolate sauce.
