Jewish food-Woodfield area

vntgkitten Mar 29, 2011 10:26 AM

Hi I just moved to the Woodfield/Schaumburg area and I'm looking for a good Jewish restaurant/deli. I myself do like the Bagel in the city but it's a little inconvenient now that I'm not there. Looking for good chopped liver and matzo ball soup. HELP!! I don't want to have to drive to Skokie or the city unless I absolutely have to.

    AFAIK there aren't any Jewish delis in the northwest suburbs, sorry. I can recommend Schmaltz in Naperville, but it's not really any closer to you than the ones in Skokie. www.schmaltzdeli.com

      Siegelman's in Arlington Heights would have been your best bet but I believe they just closed. Max & Benny's in Deerfield or Kaufman's in Skokie are about it (both are far better than the Bagel).

        I agree that Kaufman's is better than the Bagel, but Kaufman's is carry-out only, which may or may not work for you.

        Max & Benny's is in Northbrook.

        I still like Steve's Deli in River North (downtown Chicago) a whole lot too. But again, none of these places is all that close to Schaumburg. Wherever you go, bring a cooler and stock up! :)

        Bagels & Bialy's on Dempster (cross-street Greenwood) in Des Plaines basically across the street from Lutheran General Hospital. It's in the same shopping strip as Portillo's. It is small but they carry some deli items, excellent bagels (even minis) and you can get a fine corned beef sandwich to go.

        It's not that far off the highway and would be closer to you than Skokie.

        I just spotted this one by searching the net. It is in Wheeling...not sure if that would be any closer to you...maybe not ?
