Kosher Restaurant Opened by Former Gateway Student  

January 13, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic could not crush the entrepreneurial dreams of former Gateway Community College student Ephrat Lieblich, the new co-owner of Ladle & Loaf, a Kosher Middle Eastern fusion restaurant that recently opened in New Haven. 

Ephrat, who completed a certificate in Digital Media & Web Design Training in 2019, opened the restaurant this past November with her husband, Benny, a chef.  Without many Kosher restaurants in the area, the couple saw an opportunity to create a new dining option showcasing Benny’s culinary talents and opened Ladle & Loaf at 357 Whalley Avenue.  Specialties include Falafel, Couscous Grain Bowl, Hummus Bowl, Herb Grilled Chicken and Shawarma.
