Taste of Chicago truly brings out the “Boys of Summer” at Eli’s. It is a a
ten day period when we get the opportunity to enjoy the lakefront, great Chicago

Charlie Robinson and Robinson’s Ribs. Charlie is a great restaurateur and is
extremely charitable. He is truly a class act. Here I am with Charlie at

All of us at Eli’s are very fortunate to have, Mike Neuhaus, our iron man,
manage our Taste operations. Mike is busy during the day at our bakery and is at
the Taste every evening. When you are serving over 130,000 people over the 10
day run of Taste, there is a great deal of planning that goes into the planning,
staffing and operations. Congrats Mike!


When you come to Taste, make it a perfect meal with Robinson’s Ribs for
dinner and Eli’s Cheescake for dessert!
