Le Chaim, a new east side kosher restaurant, opened in August at 14417 Cedar Road in South Euclid. Owned by Haim and Devorah Leibowitz of Beachwood, Le Chaim is under the supervision of Cleveland Kosher.

The restaurant’s menu boasts items like pita, baguette or wrap sandwiches with beef kabob, falafel or grilled chicken; grilled chicken and schnitzel salads; and a selection of burgers, with sides like French fries and green beans. It also serves children’s items like hot dogs and chicken nuggets.
The restaurant also does small catering orders, and is awaiting a liquor license, Haim Leibowitz tells Jstyle.

He says the space, which previously housed Sababa Cuisine, made sense because it is centrally located in the Jewish community. And while Le Chaim’s name is similar to his name, it is not named after him, Leibowitz says. Its name stems from wanting to connect people over food.

“We’re trying to translate the idea of saying ‘l’chaim,’ that customers can come here and say it together, blessing each other,” he told the CJN in August. “Our goal is to bless each other and make everyone happy. Our goal in life is to help out all Jews.”
