Nestled in Brookside Shopping Plaza, between Northbrook and Deerfield, is the storied Max & Benny’s Restaurant, Deli & Bakery. Celebrating more than 35 years in business, the Schlan family creates an atmosphere with delicious food and a comfortable setting for good conversation.
The restaurant is a destination which combines a quintessential Jewish delicatessen and restaurant with a 100-seat private event room ideal for business gatherings.
The menu is stocked with the traditional foods of many generations: big portions of corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, a variety of comforting soup options, potato latkes, kreplach and delicious black & white cookies. Beyond the food is connection. Connection to Chicago-area Jewish life, connections to young and old and connections to business.
“Walk into Max and Benny’s any day of the week and you’ll find the booths bustling with the who’s who of the North Shore doing business, pitching business to elders or new connections breaking bread. I have seen and heard of more business deals over breakfast at this beloved destination than anywhere else,” shared business neighbor Jim McMahon, Vice Chairman, Centrust Bank.

Don’t miss out on take out rugelach and mandel bread (or perhaps hand decorated cookies for the family).
