Goodbye, Teresa’s.

After months of speculation, it has happened. Teresa’s is closed for business. There’s not much more to say, but here’s a lovely article in the Brooklyn Eagle by Mary Frost and Franscesca N. Tate. A goodbye note posted on the shut doors says:

To Our Valued Customers:

After 31 years in Brooklyn Heights, Teresa’s Restaurant will be closing permanently on Sunday, January 5th.

We would like to thank our wonderful customers and this incredible neighborhood for so many years of loyal patronage and support.

We will always cherish the memories, and we wish everyone all the best.


Teresa’s Restaurant

BHB wishes Teresa and all her staff all the best. Thanks for 31 years of the best pierogies, borscht, and stuffed cabbage this side of Greenpoint.

    Such a shame. Wish them the best but will miss the food :(

    Beyond the loss of the restaurant, I wonder if we also lose the handsome storefront. Chain businesses especially have a way of closing off their facades to the street, whether papering over the windows or putting ugly shelves for products right up against the window. Some cities have zoning restrictions against such things but I’m guessing it’s anything goes on Montague.

    I walked by yesterday and there was a reporter from News12 Brooklyn doing an on-camera report on the closing. I declined to be interviewed.

    Why are you assuming the worst? There’s also something called “Landmarks”…

  • Sandy McCroskey

    I wouldn’t jump to the conclusion that Teresa and Bogdan will lease the space to a chain!

  • Jorale-man

    Oh, I would bet good money that it will be some kind of chain. The real estate on Montague is too highly valued for a mom and pop store to make a go of it anymore. Maybe not a drug store but I could see another walk-in clinic or chain restaurant (Panara, Dunkin Donuts, etc.).

    IMHO, It’s too far out of the prime foot traffic zone (Court-Henry) to attract much in the way of those types of establishments.
