Historic Kosher Chicago

Download PDF

The fluidity of Chicago’s kosher shops, markets, cafés and restaurants would appear to be the one constant in their history. Cuisine preference, convenience, variety, and locality changed over time with the needs of the Jewish community. Businesses flourished, or failed, or tried again. Culinary memories abound. The following pages are in no way intended as a history. They are a pleasant reminiscence of some of the shops we frequented, a taste of our experience, and an occasional look at the people who brought us historic kosher Chicago.
