LA's Fairfax Avenue is lined with delis, kosher eateries and Jewish shops

Bagels and Borscht

On Fairfax Avenue between Melrose and Beverly, you'll find kosher restaurants, kosher markets and a landmark Jewish deli, Canter's, which sells giant hot pastrami sandwiches and matzo ball soup 24 hours a day. The neighborhood is also home to many Russian shops and restaurants, for this has become the center of LA's Jewish-Russian émigré community.

Pico Boulevard, running west from Fairfax towards Century City, has become a Kosher Restaurant Row, with numerous eateries including the Milky Way, which belongs to one of LA's most famous Jewish mothers, Leah Adler, mom of mega-director Steven Spielberg.
