From The Eli’s Archives–Eli Schulman featured in a print ad for Cambridge Coffee in the mid 1960′s

For two years, from 1966 to 1968, when a fire closed Eli’s Stage Delicatessen, our founder, Eli Schulman, operated both Eli’s the Place for steak and Eli’s Stage Delicatessen.

Cambridge Coffee was a leading supplier of coffee to restaurants and was owned by Leon and Joe Katz. The Cambridge Coffee facility was on Halsted at the Bridge to Goose Island across from the Montgomery Ward Warehouse.

This ad for Cambridge Coffee telling Eli’s Story ran during that two year period.

Copy reads as follows:

Superb dining–with coffee to match!

“Eli’s the Place for Steak” in the Carriage House at 215 E. Chicago Avenue, has captured the fancy of discerning diners with its friendly warmth and cozy plushiness. Restaurateur Eli Schulman creates his own specialty recipes and supervises every facet of the unobtrusive service that makes dining a pleasant and memorable experience. Eli’s is also a rendezvous for celebrities of Stage, Screen and Television.

It goes without saying that coffee is in rich harmony with the elegant food. Mr. Schulman relies on distinctive Cambridge Coffee, not only here, but at his noted Eli’s Stage Delicatessen on Oak Street.

Cambridge Coffee helps build food service reputations.
