About Eli’s Cheesecake:

In 1980, Eli Schulman declared cheesecake would be the signature dessert for his legendary Chicago steakhouse, Eli’s The Place For Steak. His unconventional fast and hot baking method resulted in the creation of “Chicago style” cheesecake: a beautiful caramelization on the outside and a creamy consistency on the inside, baked on an all butter shortbread cookie crust. What began in his restaurant’s kitchen has grown into one of the country’s largest cheesecake and dessert bakeries, creating giant celebration cakes for special occasions ranging from Chicago’s Birthday, Illinois’ Bicentennial, and the inaugurations of Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama in Washington DC.  Still a family owned business, all Eli’s Cheesecakes are handmade at Eli’s Cheesecake World, located 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.”
