ILLINOIS: Corned Beef Sandwich

Manny's Coffee Shop is a cafeteria-style delicatessen at the edge of the Loop that serves a great Chicago-style corned beef sandwich. The beef is sliced superthin and piled a mile high. Of course it's sliced to order, so the meat is moist and hot enough to combat Windy City chills; and the rye bread is sturdy and slick-crusted, dotted with caraway seeds. The ideal companion for this outrageously oversized sandwich is a crusty potato pancake. You'll eat this ultimate deli sandwich in the company of cops and wiseguys, politicians and businesspeople, blue-collar workers and suburban beef pilgrims, all of whom feel welcome in this democratic slice of Chicago life.
