Eli’s Cheesecake at the Green Tie Ball

Eli’s is a proud dessert sponsor of the Green Tie Ball, a gala benefiting Chicago Gateway Green,  a non-profit organization dedicated to greening and beautifying Chicago’s expressway, gateways, and neighborhoods.  It is the 22nd anniversary for this event!







From the Eli’s Archives

We recently came across this “Book of Experience” written by our founder, Eli Schulman, in the 1940’s. He shared this booklet with friends and guests at his restaurant, Eli’s Ogden Huddle. It was located on Chicago’s west side at Ogden and Kedzie and was a favorite spot for celebrities and locals.

Eli was the ultimate entrepreneur and really knew how to take care of his guests. Our favorite gem from the booklet  is “Treat others as though you were the others” – important words to live by in business and also in life.   His slogan for the restaurant was “Good Food – Always!” Words of wisdom that we’re still committed to today.
