Hellcab: A Chicago Holiday Story But Not Your Mother’s Christmas Carol

One of the pleasures of Hellcab is the litany of Chicago lore and locations, past and present, that color every interaction. A ride to Bridgeport, a diner at Melrose and Broadway, Mercy Hospital, the Wooden Nickel Lounge at Wilson and Broadway. And “how about those Bulls?”

What happened to the big Jewish delis in Chicago?

Other notable new Jewish-style delis include Milt's Extra Innings, part of the Milt's Barbecue for the Perplexed family, which just opened in Wrigleyville at 3409 N. Broadway; and Half Sour in the South Loop, also expected by late November.

"But if you went to the main streets like Roosevelt Road, there were beautiful big delis. If we wanted a special place, we'd go to Kedzie and Roosevelt, where there was Carl's, which is like Manny's today. People would come from all over to eat there."

The most legendary of the neighborhood's delis was Eli's Stage Delicatessen, opened in 1962 at 50 E. Oak St., counting among its customers Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Woody Allen and countless stars of stage, screen and politics too. It closed in 1968.

Carnegie Deli, the famous New York spot (which itself closed in 2016), tried a location in Chicago at 900 N. Michigan Ave. Opened in 1989, it closed in 1991. The space was replaced by the Oak Street Restaurant and Bakery, still open and serving corned beef sandwiches, but no longer matzo ball soup.

"I tried in Streeterville and failed," said Max and Benny's founder and President Lester Schlan. In 2006 Schlan had opened a second location at 322 E. Illinois St. but closed after only six months.

Steingold's of Chicago opened in late August in North Center, at 1840 W. Irving Park Road, as Chicago's newest contemporary Jewish deli, or a "newish deli," as it and others of a new generation here and elsewhere are hashtagged on Instagram.

If that sounds ambitious, Steingold recently revealed they're already opening a second location to meet demand. The smaller, walk-up-only Steingold's Station plans to open later this month in Ravenswood Manor, adjacent to the Francisco Brown Line stop at 4642 N. Francisco Ave.
