Eat It: Teresa’s in Brooklyn Heights

December 26th, 2008 · 2 Comments

And, now, our weekly advise about dining from the good people at Eat It: The Brooklyn Food Blog, who take on Teresa’s in Brooklyn Heights this week:

I was doing some Holiday shopping last weekend in Brooklyn Heights and suddenly had a craving for some Pierogis and Potato Pancakes so I met up with my boyfriend (who was doing shopping of his own) at Teresa’s (80 Montague St. between Hicks and Columbia Heights, 718-797-3996), a Polish restaurant that my family and I used to order delivery from when I was in High School. I’m so glad it’s still there, as so much has changed over the years.

Teresa’s is all light wood floors, tables and chairs, and kind of feels like a Perkins or some kind of place like that. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s great like a great diner can be – you know what to expect, it’s comfort food and then there are little surprises that make it rise above the regular crowd. The coffee keeps coming and the wait staff is on top of things and efficient. There’s also a little bar counter in the back, near the TV. We started out with a salad, knowing that the rest of our meal would be all things greasy, heavy and fried. The salad was perfect with crisp Iceberg lettuce, wedges of not-mealy tomato, shredded carrots and thin slices of red onion. The Thousand Island dressing came in a little dish on the side and was delicious. We went on to get Pierogis, Potato Pancakes and the best Kielbasa and Sauerkraut!

    I have recently conducted a book signing at Teresa’s. Over the course of the entire afternoon, I did not hear one single complaint from the customers. My name is Gerald Conteh and I do not mind to put my name under this review.
