Popular diner closes after decades of serving Brooklyn Heights

Posted: Updated:

A popular diner in Brooklyn Heights is closed after decades of serving the community.

Teresa's Restaurant on Montague Street has been serving up hearty Polish eats and brunch for 31 years. But a sign posted on the door now is saying goodbye.

News 12 is told that the owner, Teresa Brzozowska, and her brother opened the restaurant in 1989. It was wildly popular for its pierogies, babka and challah French toast.

Back in March of 2019, the Brooklyn Paper reported that the restaurant was closed temporarily after the Department of Health issued several violations, alleging there was mice and that the food wasn't properly protected from contamination. The restaurant reopened after fixing the problems.

A real estate listing for Teresa's Restaurant was posted, listing it at $18,000 a month.
