Both Eli’s and Manny’s History dates back over 60 years in Chicago. Eli and Manny were contemporaries in the restaurant business who earned their standing as great hosts and restaurant operators. Eli was an advisor to Manny’s son, Ken Raskin, after Ken took over the business and Eli’s was very proud that Manny’s was one of his first customers for his signature Eli’s Cheesecake.
We are very proud that one of the traditions of the Thanksgiving Day Holiday Weekend has become Eli’s Cheesecake Saturday at Manny’s Deli (a free slice with the purchase of a sandwich or entree). What a great way for a family to celebrate being together for the long weekend. Looking forward to Eli’s Day Manny’s 2011–Saturday, November 26th.
