Park Delicatessen, the haven for Polish comfort food is known amongst the Greenpoint community as the “go to” location for delicious Polish cuisine. The family owned restaurant, known simply as Park Deli to locals, has been around for nearly a decade serving traditional Polish cuisine to thousands hungry Brooklynites all year long. Unfortunately, Krystna Godawa, owner of Park Deli, has recently announced the closing of its doors on August 1 due to a two-fold increase in rent.
The beloved food heaven was a popular and daily destination for lunch and dinner for the Broadway Stages Family. Among the members of the theatrical union at working at Broadway Stages, Richie Vetere, notes that, “there’s going to be a lot of disappointed Teamsters.” Vetere says around 75 workers working at Broadway Stages rely on the Park Deli to satisfy their craving for chicken cutlet, Swedish meatballs, sauerkraut, and crispy pierogi. In addition to workers from Broadway Stages, Park Deli is also a favorite eatery for production workers, whom use Broadway Stages’ sound stages to film hit shows such as Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Blue Bloods. The popular spot is also a loved breakfast, lunch, and dinner destination from dozens of local 94th Precinct policemen and policewomen looking to satisfy a long day’s work with hot delicious foods.
Broadway Stages is sad to see that our fellow Greenpoint business and beloved Polish restaurant will soon be no longer open. Broadway Stages has always supported local restaurants such as Park Deli to benefit local businesses as part of our Brooklyn commitment. Broadway Stages always looks to buy local because we believe in supporting helping our neighbors. We advise to visit the Park Deli located at 209 Nassau Ave in Greenpoint, Brooklyn while you still can to show as much support as possible until August 1. Don’t miss the chance to try one of the most amazing home-cooked Polish in Brooklyn!
