Bernie and Leah (Spielberg) Adler opened the doors to Milky Way restaurant in 1977. Their vision was to offer fine kosher food to the Jewish community at a time when such a thing didn’t exist in Los Angeles. Leah wanted to introduce interesting fare to many who had never tasted dishes like Cajun, Mexican, or Thai. Shortly after opening, it was very apparent that the main attraction wasn’t just the food, but was Leah herself! With her unique and exuberant charm; independent and confident style, Leah had the ability to make every guest in the restaurant feel as if they were the most important. People came for the food, but they kept coming back for Leah!

The restaurant soon became known in the global Jewish communities, and even among the general public too!

Leah disdained being identified as a “kosher deli”! Yes, she served traditional Jewish dishes like blintzes and potato pancakes, but that was where the similarities ended. When Leah would greet each table, she would describe the daily specials with such animation that she would easily convince the table to try them. She was known for her love of classical music, art, denim and Cabernet Sauvignon wine.

Leah was a devoted mother to her four children and a beloved friend and employer. She will always be an iconic figure, revered by so many. Her memory is forever a blessing and her spirit lives on inside Milky Way, its food and community always.

I love this restaurant, it's one of my favorites in L.A. and I go a few times whenever I'm in town. The service is always a pleasure and your always greeted at the door by a warm and friendly person. The food is updated and the whole menu was just redone a few months ago. The quality is amazing, no matter what you order the food is always fresh, and you can taste it. They also have Wi-Fi and free refills on many of their drinks, and the restaurant is always quite and private, so it's very family friendly, but really great for business meetings as well. This is all besides for the fact that it is the Spielberg family restaurant, and has great family photos and memorabilia. And I really enjoy supporting the restaurant who gave so many of us such amazing childhood experiences and memories. Open

This place is very quite and the food is amazing. Do try the grilled salmon. One of the best I've ever had. There is no large sign on the outside, so we just stumbled upon this place. Open

I came here a bit later on a Monday evening an the place was practically empty. But that did end up meaning fast (and courteous) service. The ambience is homey and cozy, which was nice, though I actually thought the servingware was actually a bit too plain. Food was good, it's a bit of an assortment. I ended up having the crispy potstickers (which were a bit overcooked) and the Thai Fish Fry. Both were good, not great. The Thai Fish Fry was interesting in that it was cubes of deep fried halibut in a peanut sauce. Unfortunately the flavor of the fish was completely lost, but the sauce was quite good so I guess that made up for it. And as others have noted, the cheesecake is quite amazing. It's actually much softer, creamier and airier than any New York style cheesecake I've had, and tasted better than most. Overall I'd say a decent choice for a homey meal. Open
