Eli’s Cheesecake on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer’s special Made in America

Last night, Eli’s Cheesecake was featured on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer’s segment Made In America. The segment talked about American companies, such as Eli’s, who are exporting goods and doing business in countries in the Middle East, like Saudi Arabia. Business from the Middle East is helping American companies grow rapidly in a slow home market.  At the end of the segment, David Muir presented Diane with a slice of Eli’s Cheesecake specially made all the way from Chicago.

Chef Eryn Keur on ABC 7 Chicago News

Eli’s had the honor of being invited to give demonstration on ABC channel 7 in Chicago this week. Chef Eryn Keuer demonstrated some great ideas on “dorm food” – delicious dishes, like Eli’s cheesecake Dippers, that college students can prepare quickly and easily in a microwave.

Chef Antonio and Marc on ABC Channel 7

It is an emotional time for us here at Eli’s, as after 39 great years our downtown restaurant, Eli’s the Place for Steak, is closed. But the Eli’s legacy of great food lives on in our cheesecakes, in our cafe on the northwest side of Chicago, and now on TV!  Yesterday we had the pleasure of appearing on ABC (Channel 7 in Chicago) with anchor Alan Krashesky.  Our Chef at Eli’s Cheesecake Cafe, Antonio Rivera, prepared my Dad’s recipe for Liver Eli, a famous dish at our restaurant, and our popular Eli’s Smoosh. We’ll be preparing a variation made with beef, Steak Eli, and $1 Smooshes at our weekly Farmer’s Market this Thursday from 11am-2pm. Even though Eli’s the Place for Steak is closed, you can still get great food at Eli’s Cheesecake Cafe.
