Saving the nation and the deli. Way to go Obama.
Well, it’s official. After months of rumors and me trying to keep it hush hush, Manny’s Cafeteria and Delicatessen is finally open for dinner. Chicago’s hungry masses can finally rejoice in the knowledge that a hard day at the office or the meat processing plant holds the reward of a hot bowl of Manny’s mish mosh, their fantastic kishke, and a hot, pink tower of steaming corned beef with a scraggly, crisp latke on the side.
The deli celebrated with an opening dinner party the other night. Check out the photos here. Note the picture of Obama above. How can you not support him now? Congratulations to the Raskin family. One small step for Manny’s is one giant leap for Chicago.
For those of you not familiar with Manny’s, here’s a brief tour.
Manny’s is open now from 5 am to 8 pm 6 days a week.
It’s still closed on Sundays.
