By 1930, Beverly Hills was more than a one-horse town; after all, there was Tom Mix’s horse, Hoot Gibson’s, Hopalong’s (Bill Boyd), Leo Carillo’s and a good number of others were seen on the bridal paths of Rodeo Drive and Sunset Boulevard.

Also in 1930, a restaurant serving Mitell-European cuisine opened in a wood-frame house on now-famous Rodeo Drive. Recovering from the “Crash of ‘29” was difficult but through the dedication and personality of owner Mama Weiss, the restaurant prospered and became “home away from home” to many colorful members of the motion picture community.

Preview coming soon.
Milton Weiss, son of the legendary Mama Weiss recounts antics of film-folk in the restaurant and paints a picture of life in Beverly Hills and its environs in the days of the “Big Studios.”

Milton also includes 129 recipes, many reprinted from the Mama Weiss Cookbook published in 1953.
