    Had lunch at Manny's on Saturday. Pastrami was ok, corned beef was packed with flavor and was really enjoyable, best CB I've had a Manny's yet.

    Free cookie coupons from the to-go area were being given out, a smaller version than the dinner plate size cookies on sale there. Cookies were not good at all.
    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.

    I have to get back there. Been a few years after a 10 year period when I ate there every weekday when the Raskins were our landlords down the street.

    I wonder if they still do the oxtail stew. Tender meat and a killer gravy with carrots, celery, onions & potatoes. At that time it was the most expensive thing on the menu at $13.95, and it was worth every penny.

    I'd also try some kishke, and then for home I'd have Gino make me up a combo pastrami/CB on a Kaiser. (And then maybe the paddles... 8) ) Never was a big fan of the potato latkes--I like the Bagel's better.

    Last time I was here I had the oxtails and was very happy. Believe the price has gone up but still well worth it.

    I owed my lawyer lunch for a recent settlement he got me against a certain client that stiffed me last yr. He also happens to be my oldest eating partner going back to the early 60's. After his grandfather's funeral, we skipped out a little early to get back to his aunts for shiva and demolished a smoked fish tray meant for 20 pp in 15 mins between the 2 of us before anyone else got there. With that in mind I suggested Manny's to try their smoked fishes (a reoccurring theme w/us) no steam table would be involved.

    Moist and delicious peppered sable and nova were the stars, beating out the chubs by a fin, which were good but not in the same league. A few toasted bagels, some whipped chive cream cheese w/sides of capers, red onion, tomatoes, cukes, Dr Brown's black cherry and 3 of us were in food bliss for $50. A much needed niche filled, making for a few deliriously satiated Jews.

    Went for Friday night dinner a couple Fridays ago, both corned beef & pastrami were meh, just not a lot of flavor. Should have gone with the short rib dinner.

    I'm not sure how much longer they can stay in business for dinner, besides Mrs Willie & myself, at 6pm there were 6 others in the entire restaurant. I hope they do, Mrs Willie & I like stopping in for dinner prior to concerts at Northerly Island or when in the area during dinner prime time as it is easy to park & get in/served.

    I used to think Manny's was the end all be all for this type of food, but then I had Shapiro's Deli in Indianapolis and it basically ruined all the warm feelings I had for Manny's.

    I now describe Manny's as "pretty good alternative when you aren't going to be in Indy anytime soon".

    LOL - I've often referred to Shapiro's as the best deli in Chicago.

    hi aaron, it's good to hear from you. i'm guessing this is really good news to you- it would be to me, i'm a big fan of the raskin family. here's hoping the new deli is as successful as the owners intend it to be. please keep us updated...

    For anyone in the neighborhood, Next of Kin in Evanston offers Manny's corned beef on their sandwich menu.

    Thanks, Joan, you too!

    There was a separate KC board but it went away with the redesign. I lost the time to effectively maintain content many years back, but many (though not all) of the old posts were absorbed into this board and live on in the Kansas City index.

    i've tried the corned beef @costco from manny's and i was not impressed. i had to wonder if they are offering an inferior cut, or maybe the steam setup at the deli improves the flavor...but i didnt feel like buying it again, and i love the corned beef at manny's....has anyone else had the same experience???

    I had the same exact experience. I've never bought it since.
