Last night, Eli’s Cheesecake Executive Pastry Chefs, Diana Moles and Laurel Boger, presented an Eli’s Wildflower Honey Cheesecake at the Savor, an Evening of Magnificent Pairings event at the Bloomingdale’s Home & Furniture Store at Medinah Temple in Chicago as a participant of the Greater North Michigan Avenue Association (GNMAA). The Wildflower Honey Cheesecake is a ricotta cheesecake sweetened with raw wildflower honey, topped with mascarpone cheese, crunchy cardamom-scented honey almonds and baked on an all-butter shortbread cookie crust. The honey used is produced by student beekeepers from the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences(CHSAS), a college preparatory high school that provides opportunities for diverse students from across the city to study agriculture. Eli’s is a proud sponsor of CHSAS. For more information: http://www.gnmaa.com/images/uploads/documents/Email_Savor_InviteOct17.pdf

The Eli’s Family Mourns the loss of our Dearest Friend – Bobby Hatoff, the Chairman of Allen Brothers Meats
The dearest friend to Eli, the Schulman Family and the entire Eli’s Family, Bobby started doing business with Eli at Eli’s Stage Delicatessen on Oak Street in the early 1960’s. That business relationship grew dramatically when my parents opened Eli’s the Place for Steak in 1966 on East Chicago Avenue. When he walked through Eli’s the Place for Steak (and so many other top restaurants in Chicago), he always had kind words for the wait and kitchen staff asking about their children by name. He was always the most generous tipper while giving so much more from his heart.
Eli’s was the first of a new generation of steakhouses which have changed the dining experience in America. Bobby was a “secret weapon” for Eli’s and so many restaurants and leading chains around the country. He knew meat so well and how an operator could maximize the customer experience while helping the operator be profitable.
When Eli passed away over 24 years ago, Bobby was there all that day and for every day after that for me. He was my Senior Advisor giving great advice on sales, on management, on life and people. He was never too busy to help. No one was more committed to the success of Eli’s as a Company and my personal success than Bobby. When there were challenges in business, it was time for dinner with Bobby at Filippo’s on Clybourn. By the time the evening was over, I felt much better as Bobby’s advice was always right on and gave me the energy that I needed to meet the challenges of the next day.
Bobby is irreplaceable! We could not have gotten here without him and will commit to always leading our lives with his integrity, optimism and charity. Bobby, we miss you so much!

Eli’s was recently mentioned online in Northampton Chronicle & Echo’s Restaurant Review as the dessert of choice at The Cordwainer for one particular writer. Amanda O’Hare, praised Eli’s Original Plain Cheesecake, which was served with strawberry and blueberry compote, for being “delicious” and “well presented”. Eli’s is glad to see our Cheesecake being enjoyed so fondly across the pond in the United Kingdom.
