After arriving from Poland following World War II, Rabbi Mayer Mendelsohn's opened a small pizza shop in Brooklyn, NY. With no seating and a menu consisting of only pizza, falafel and French fries, he established the first kosher pizza store in Boro Park.

Fifty years ago, Rav Meir Mendelsohn, a posek, rav, rosh yeshivah, and mashgiach in several yeshivos, opened Mendelsohn’s Pizza and Dairy Restaurant on 18th Avenue, not far from the subway station.
