best kept secret – i don't know about the brooklyn branch, but i've been a regular at the Teresa's on 1st Ave for years now and i'm never disappointed. the brunch special is a deal ($9.95 including a cocktail) in this neighborhood where things keep getting more and more expensive. i always get either the omelette, the pancakes with apples and walnuts, or the challah french toast. also, for lunch or dinner, i highly recommend the pierogies, potato pancakes, and soups (especially the tomato, cream of leek, or pea soups!) the service is usually efficient and always friendly. plus, at brunch when most people are clamoring around veselka (for pretty sub par food), you rarely have to wait for a table at teresa's! love it.

good food and not a rip-off – Teresa's is a quality restaurant with some ambiance. It's greatest feature is value. My date and I had entrees, soup, and appetizers (fresh spinach pierogies) for $33 - ($40 with the tip). This is a relief to your wallet when you're paying $100 per ticket for a broadway show. For those who think you always have to pay a lot when you're in New York, it contradicts that nicely. Everything was fresh and the spices are subtle. It feels authentic; I think it was filled with native New Yorkers, not a tourist place. Low-lit incandescent lighting with some nice art on the walls. Enjoy.

BEWARE!!!! – A friend and I went to chow on some Polish fare, however, it turned out to be the worst restaurant experience I have ever had in New York. The waitstaff was unfriendly and down right rude. We waited 20 minutes for menus and water and when the food finally came, the meat in the stuffed cabbage was pink, cold, and not cooked. When we asked the server to take it back, she did not apoligize, but walked away in a huff. Who would ever eat here is beyond me....New York it full of great resturants.....THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

Like home, but better – This place is a good example of Polish cuisine. I ate there by myself and a few other people were dining alone also. My grandparents came from Poland and the Polish Platter was like the food my relatives make at home - only better than I remember it! It's an inexpensive, comfortable place.
