My wife is from Greenpoint, Brooklyn and I am from Manhattan. She is Eastern European and we have been dining on a quite regularly in the Pyza Polish Restaurant on Nassau Street for over 20 years. The food in this cafeteria stye dismal restaurant was always excellent with extra large porti and extremely good prices. A Polish television station broadcasting from Warsaw in Polish is always blasting! The old over the entrance door is extremely old, inefficient, undersized and noisey! The heat in this restaurant is oppressive especially in the Spring and Summer months and it is freezing from lack of heat in the winter months. The restaurant is actually run down and has the appearance of a homeless "SOUP KITCHEN"!!!
take out line from yesterday. The prices were dramatically increased, the portions and size of the dishes were smaller, the food was cold and there was "GRIZZLE" all around my (1) piece of small flattened chicken cutlet. ($10.95) Previously, you got (2) large chicken cutlets, a large portion of delicious mashed potatoes, gravy, 2 salads (carrot & coleslaw and (2) slices of rye bread. We always get the chicken noodle soup. This time it was cold and only consisted of chicken) broth and small pieces of pasta. $(3.50) There was absolutely no vegetables or chicken in it! The bowl was smaller and the soup was cold, Previously, we used to "share a bowl. My wife had the Polish Platter. This was not only disappointing but disgraceful! Small plate, terrible stuffed cabbage, small piece of kielbasa, tiny portion of mashed potatoes with (2) excellent potato pancakes--($14.99). I checked and seen that there is a "NEW)" cook and assistant and it is rumoured that there is a new owner. It's "CASH ONLY" and I would like to see what income is reported! WE LEFT hungry and went to McDonalds. While were finishing up another couple came in and the first thing they said to each other was that the piece of fried fish was so small and the quality and taste of the food inferior! They also had been coming in there for many years!
Who needs this!-- No credit cards, inferior food, higher prices, bad atmosphere, no service and a $45.00ff going to a diner. If you want good wholesome food, food go to the North Side Bakery down the road on the corner of Nassau & Homboldt Streets! That's where we are going from now on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111
