Posted 1/19/15: As mentioned on the CVG Facebook page on January 5th, the former Brats Brothers (and prior to that, the beloved Lamppost Pizza) location at 2160A Newbury Road in Newbury Park is slated to become Jeanette's Edelweiss German Restaurant in the coming months.


Jeanette’s Edelweiss will offer classic German food including weiner schnitzel, bratwurst, spatzle, goulish, apple strudel and more, a selection of German beers, friendly service and a live band playing German folk music along with rock ‘n roll. Also on the menu are beef tenderloin medallion sliders, Rhineland Cold Cut Platter, Authentic Bavarian Weißwurst, herb-infused chicken sausage, Bavarian Goulash, Munich Roasted Chicken, Kassler Pork Chops, Atlantic Salmon Filet, Vegan Entrees (made without soy) including bratwurst, sauerbraten and sauteed vegetable casserole and much more.

I also see Black Forest Torte, German Pound Cake, Cheesecake, Cherry Strudel and Apple Dumplings on the menu. Mmmm.

Celebrity German chef Kurt Ehrlich, who has served mouth-watering German specialties to Hollywood stars and several U.S. Presidents, will ensure that patrons enjoy a true taste of Bavaria.

The owners are Jeanette Buerling Milio and Jim Milio. Jeanette is a highly successful German movie producer who has lived in Los Angeles for 15 years. Jim is a successful writer, producer and director who has been involved numerous productions over the years, including Rescue 911 (CBS), Dog Whisperer (National Geographic) and a co-executive producer of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Jim will be writing and directing a reality series covering around the launch and behind he scenes of Jeanette’s Edelweiss  Edelweiss in Hollywood.

Can we handle this much excitement in Newbury Park!? Bring it!!
