We visited Max and Benny's in Northbrook a couple of Fridays ago for dinner. We expected a crowd on a Friday evening, so we arrived early. We soon learned that the restaurant not only attracted a crowd but tables of jovial diners eager to not only enjoy a meal but to sit with friends and family sharing the news of the week.
A suburban Chicago mainstay, Max and Benny's opened 30 years ago by Rhea and Lester Schlan and is still owned by the Schlan family today. Named after the Schlans' sons, Max & Benny's maintains a sizable menu featuring many traditional Jewish favorites crafted from family recipes. You will no doubt find your favorites here including my husband's favorite, Chicken Mish Mosh Soup--which is comfort food at its finest! Family through and through is what you will find at Max & Benny's!
