ABOUT Slice of Life

Walking into Slice of Life is a delight to all your senses- from the beautiful hand-painted walls, matching upholstery and exposed copper ducts, to the tantalizing aromas of savory dishes being prepared in the kitchen. Offering a wide range of temptations for the past 30+ years, owner Sheldon Kane doesn't make it easy for you to decide. With minestrone, vegetarian chili, French onion soups, along with more than ten appetizers, such as salmon teriyaki kabobs, you can be assured your meal is off to a good start. Slice of Life's eclectic menu treats you to a selection of made-to- order salads, ranging from the traditional Greek salad sprinkled with the best tasting Israeli feta available to Slice of Life's own version of an antipasto salad. The restaurant is also synonymous with quesadillas. These huge homemade flour tortillas stuffed with cheese and various fillings are a favorite with guests and are always served with homemade guacamole and salsa. For pasta lovers, sizzling spinach lasagna or irresistible linguine tossed with fresh salmon in rich homemade Alfredo sauce are popular choices. Slice of Life still makes ravioli the old fashioned way, by hand. If it is sandwiches that you have come for, do not pass up the A.L.T. club, a satisfying triple decker or the well-stacked eggplant parmesan sandwich. For the more adventurous, Slice of Life serves up multiple flavors that blend together nicely in its portabello mushroom and feta sandwich with homemade pesto spread. As the name Slice of Life suggests, pizza is a staple among their customers. Customize your own thin crust pizza with a wide selection of fresh vegetables or choose from a specialty/gourmet pizza. Slice of Life’s award winning deep-dish pizza rates among Chicago's best. Calzones, huge turnovers made from homemade pizza dough, are also a big hit. The restaurant offers a full service bar with tantalizing drink specials and a fine selection of premium beers, single malt scotches as well as red and white wines. Finally, Slice of Life's own cheesecake is a great way complete your meal. Don't be afraid to bring the children, even the littlest guest will walk, or crawl, away happy.

Walter- 07/19/16

I recently had an old college freind come visit. We decided to go out to dinner. I chose Hy Life, and I'm glad I did. The decor and ambiance is outstanding. We both ordered Burgers. All I can say is WOW! Fresh, done to perfection, juicy. The service superb. attentive but not overbearing. Great Job. Highly recommended

I need a couple of glatt kosher meals. Do you deliver to the Chicago area near anshe meet temple? Would you deliver the meals on Friday? I'm having a mitzvah and 2 of my guests need a glatt kosher meal. Thank you.

I realize you posted this 3 months ago but Glatt Kosher applies to meat, not dairy. This is a dairy place, not a meat one.

Yes, but Slice of Life has a sister fleischig retaurant, HY Life Bistro

The deep dish pizza is FANTASTIC. Also, the vegetarian deep dish has less cheese and more veggies, and wherever I send or bring it for a lunch appointment or have it delivered to the office, people are amazed by the taste. Its great to have such a classy deep-dish in the kosher community. Thanks Slice!!!!!!

My mother used to love coming to see Sheldon and the chiii. Everytime one of us would come in we just had to take my mom there.. I've been to Chicago twice since my mom passed away and am coming in with my son... time to break in a third generation..

The fact the restaurant is kosher play no role in my love for the high quality of food. The variety of freshly made soups is most impressive as is the extensive menu. I have been a big fan for years and continue taking clients there on a regular basis.

I don't keep Kosher, and still I think the deep dish pizza from Slice of Life in Skokie, IL is the best I've ever had in my life. You will fight over the crust.
