Manny’s Deli

Deli in West Loop & Near West Side

Chicago’s politicos and seen-it-all senior citizens get in the cafeteria-style line at Manny’s for the towering pastrami and corned-beef sandwiches, matzo-ball soup, potato pancakes and other deli staples. Know what you want before you join the fast-moving queue.

The newspaper clippings on the wall provide a dose of city history – or you could just eavesdrop on the table next to you to hear deals being brokered that could be tomorrow’s front-page story.
