Welcome to Manny’s Deli, from our family to yours! As you walk through our doors, know that we welcome you to our home. Our food and recipes have been handed down from generation to generation. We hope you enjoy them. Ken Raskin, proprietor and son of the late Manny, works the rooms, greeting customers who have known him since he was a small boy. Ken feels that part of the secret to his success is being visible to his customers, making sure they are happy and satisfied. Ken’s son Danny, fourth generation, has joined full time and help in personally overseeing the daily work of the restaurant. The family tradition is nothing new at Manny’s. It can be traced back (along with some of the recipes) to the very beginning 74 years ago. The Russian-born brothers specialized in Jewish cooking served up quickly and in large portions – the way Charlie had learned by watching his mother. When Manny’s opened, it was among the last of the unique style of urban eatery – the home style, family-run cafeteria bubbling with the spirit of its neighborhood and attracting patrons from all walks of life. In those early years, if you lived or worked anywhere in the vicinity you could hitch a ride on the Manny’s van that circled around making deliveries and picking up customers for lunch. Still, to get the full effect of the rich history surrounding Manny’s you have to view the dining room walls decorated with news clippings, reviews, snapshots, and memorabilia demonstrating how deeply Chicagoans treasure this historic restaurant – as a place to eat and meet, and as a memento of downtown as it was a half century ago, a relic of the past.
