History of Eli's Cheesecake
Restaurateur Eli Schulman declared cheesecake as the signature dessert for his legendary Chicago steakhouse, Eli's The Place For Steak, 40 years ago. By breaking all the rules of traditional cheesecake baking (fast bake, high heat, no water bath) he created "Chicago Style" cheesecake: richer and creamier than its NY counterpart, baked on an all-butter shortbread cookie crust. Frequently referred to as a Chicago icon, Eli's has grown from a local favorite to creating 2,000 pound cheesecakes for both of President Bill Clinton's and President Barack Obama's Inaugural celebrations in Washington DC. Known for baking up big celebratory cakes, Eli's has been a part of almost every Chicago celebration. Still a family-owned business, Eli's hand makes and decorates all its cheesecakes and desserts at Eli's Cheesecake World on Chicago's northwest side. Eli's attributes its success to a strong commitment to quality, empowering its workforce and following Eli Schulman's mantras "Charity will never bust you" and "Treat others as if you were the other."
