For many folks, including myself, Manny's is the benchmark in Chicago. Their corned beef, pastrami and rare roast beef are the standards to which all other places are ultimately compared. Their soups are excellent, as are many of their sides. The relatively recent addition of dinner service, has brought to light for me, dishes like Romanian Skirt Steak, Meatloaf and Short Ribs, which are all wonderful. If a friend was visiting from out of town and asked me to take him for Jewish deli food, Manny's is the only place I'd even consider.
For me, Manny's is an obvious renewal.
