Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue – these words ring in mind when announcing the business partnership between Lee Rosenbaum (the Lee in Mil-Lee’s) and Nicole Rabena, owner of the La La Lobster growing seafood restaurant empire.
Mil-Lee’s Luv-Inn has been a staple in Yardley Borough for over 16 years with its NE Philly roots and home-cooked recipes that have been handed down and enjoyed for many years.
But 2020 had other plans for restaurants big and small.
“Nicole stepped in and decided to revive our little space, keeping the doors open,” Lee says.
Lee’s charm and gracious manner make anyone feel welcome at his “home away from home,” Mil-Lee’s Luv-Inn at 75 S. Main Street. Lee partnered with his mother-in-law (Mil) when they first opened the business.
It’s a family restaurant, so much so that the menu reflects all of Lee’s children: Hy’s Hoagies, Abby’s Wraps and grandchildren Jack’s Kids menu.
Lee and Nicole will be forging their business minds together to bring something OLD and something NEW to Mil-Lee’s.
“Nicole has great ideas that will bring a modern twist and upgrades to Mil-Lee’s while keeping the family charm and welcoming feel of the restaurant,” says Lee.
You’ve probably noticed the blue buildings in the center of Yardley Borough, the original and first location of La La Lobster.
Nicole came on the scene in October of 2020, with an overwhelming response to her product and concept of Lobster Rolls and Bowls in a year-round location.
Nicole has ushered in a breath of fresh air to Yardley Borough, and has now occupied the larger rear building of her 35 S. Main Street location, with plans to include Filet Mignon Sandwiches to compliment the lobster. (Did someone say, ‘Surf ‘n Turf’?)
“We are so excited to be partnering with Lee and being able to keep his local landmark alive and well,” says Nicole.
