Eli’s the Place for Steak and Eli’s Cheesecake Recognized for supporting HELP-Help Ease Local Poverty

It would be wonderful if there was no poverty or hunger on the near north
side of Chicago or anywhere in our country. We know, however, that poverty and
hunger are a reality and that it is important to provide hot meals for the

On the near north side, our friend, Jacqueline Hayes, saw the need and
created HELP–Help Ease Local Poverty. Each week, over 125 people that are
homeless and disadvantaged, come together for a quality dinner and dessert.

Eli’s the Place for Steak was the first restaurant to support this program
and we made an additional contribution of dessert for the dinner on December

Our thanks to Jackie and the volunteers of HELP for their committment to the
homeless and disadvantaged.

and share the secret of the meat we serve; it is Allen Brothers. For over one
hundred years, Allen Brothers has been a purveyor to the finest restaurants
throughout the country. The owners of Allen Brothers, Bobby Hatoff, Chairman,
and Todd Hatoff, President, have a passion for serving customers, whether it be
a national restaurant chain, a great independent, like Eli’s, or for you to
serve at home.

The new edition of the Allen Brothers catalog is out (visit them online at
800-957-0111 or call 800-957-0111).It includes all aspects of gourmet dining

for Allen Brothers.

Enjoy the best of gourmet food from Allen Brothers-with no better pair than
an Eli’s Cheesecake and an Allen Brothers steak.
