TV & film Producer Jim and Jeanette Milio are the owners of this new authentic German restaurant experience

Southern Californians are about to get a true taste of authentic German food, music and fun with the launch of Jeanette’s Edelweiss restaurant in Newbury Park (near Thousand Oaks/Westlake area) in March 2015.

The myth that German food is “heavy” will be proven wrong when German Executive Chef Kurt Ehrlich offers up his mouth-watering, homemade recipes. Kurt’s specialties include vegan and vegetarian dishes, along with traditional German fare, perfectly spiced and cooked with fresh, locally grown ingredients.

The renowned Chef Kurt has decades of experience and an impressive track record, having cooked for Hollywood celebrities as well as Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

Chef Kurt says, "I’m excited to introduce authentic, delicious and healthy German cuisine to the customers of Jeanette’s Edelweiss and to share my secret recipes with Jeanette and on the TV show. My intention is to make Jeanette’s Edelweiss Southern California’s number one German Restaurant,”

Jeanette’s Edelweiss will also offer the best of German beers on tap, and German wines imported from family wineries throughout Germany.

Jeanette’s Edelweiss is more than an authentic German restaurant with excellent food, beer and wines. It is also a place for fun and entertainment. German born music producer, writer and performer Verenice Buerling – whose music is featured on shows like The Voice, Real Housewives, and Dance Moms – is the entertainment director of the restaurant. Every weekend the German folk band “Hammerstein” will play authentic German folk songs, which will have people leaping out of their chairs and raising their mugs high.

Jeanette’s Edelweiss owner, Jeanette B. Milio, is not only born and raised in Germany, but is a renowned Hollywood industry veteran, who has been involved in over 45 motion picture and television projects with Emmy and Academy Award winning talent in front and behind the camera.

“I moved to LA 15 years ago to follow my dream of becoming a Hollywood producer. Even though my work here and raising daughter in a new country kept me busy, I still found myself missing my home country. I still do so to this day.” Jeanette wanted to bring a slice of home to America, which was the seed for her to launch a German restaurant, and then hire a top notch, experienced team to run it.

Co-owner Jim Milio has been a writer, producer and director of television and films for more than twenty years. In film, Milio wrote and directed Men Seeking Women starring Will Ferrell and was the co-executive producer of the highest grossing romantic comedy of all time, My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Jim Milio has written, produced, or directed more than 400 hours of television including The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan for National Geographic, Founding Fathers for the History Channel, The Discovery Channel Eco-Challenge Australia, Rescue 911 for CBS, the Emmy nominated Great Moments in Disney Animation for ABC, and The Real Las Vegas for A&E.

Jeanette’s Hollywood credits include 13, starring Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, The Experiment, starring Academy Award ® winning actors Adrian Brody and Forrest Whitaker; Dark Tide, starring Academy Award ® winning actress Halle Berry, the upcoming Weinstein Company comedy, Wild Oats, starring Academy Award ® winner Shirley MacClaine, Demi Moore, Jessica Lange and Billy Connelly.

The TV reality series “Edelweiss in Hollywood,” featuring Jeanette’s Edelweiss and the dream team behind it, is currently being filmed by three time People’s Choice award-winning producer writer, and director Jim Milio (“Rescue 911, Dog Whisperer,” and “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”). “The reality series is the chance to share my vision of German music, food and fun with the world,” says Jeanette.

In March 2015 the restaurant will open to the public; starting with a very special celebrity opening with TV and film stars. The restaurant is located in beautiful Newbury Park, in the Westlake/ Thousand Oaks area of sunny Southern California.
