Peter K’s, the Polish-centric family restaurant in Cheektowaga, has been sold. But its fans will have some time to stop back for another stuffed potato pancake.
For now, the menu won’t change, even though the signs on the restaurant will, said new owner Eileen Doino. The building at 2709 Harlem Road will be relabeled “Doino’s Pizzeria Bar & Grill,” while the stuffed potato pancakes and pierogi stay on the menu, she said.
Doino took over from founder Peter Koschuk last week. Doino’s plan is to change the re restaurant changed hands last week. The plan is to switch to a pizza-anchored tavern menu early in 2017, Doino said.
At that point she’ll decide how much of the old menu to keep, she said. Fish fries are definitely staying, but it’s not clear how much of the Polish menu will. “We’ll have to see,” Doino said.
Doino was an owner of Pentacle, a restaurant on Transit Road in Depew that closed in 1996. In the meantime, she operated Bartender’s Professional Training Institute.
The kitchen is being expanded into the dining room to accommodate equipment. Once work is complete, the restaurant will start offering the pizza in its new name, Doino said. “We’ve got the architect working on the plans, but it looks like it’ll be spring.”
