Fairfax District

Ethnic Neighborhoods L.A.

L.A.'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 L.A.'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 L.A.'s most famous Jewish mothers, Leah Adler, mom of mega-director Steven Spielberg.
