Yanky’s Pizza hopes to gain a following in Côte Saint-Luc

I have lived most of my life in Côte Saint-Luc and for the very first time we now have a true New York style pizza parlor.


Yanky’s opened quietly in March, the brainchild of  local resident Jacob Grosz .He and his wife Yitty, a native New Yorker, spent a lot of time planning for this big investment.  “Yanky” is Jacob’s Hebrew name. He had opened up a counter top pizza place under the same name at the  Fooderie Market in Outremont in 2020. Last January he purchased Le Falafel Plus on Decarie. Then came Côte Saint-Luc and a cozy spot in the strip mall at the corner of Mackle and Westminster which already houses Nosherz, a dry cleaner and a  religious studies organization.


As the chair of Local Commerce for the city, it was my pleasure to go meet with Jacob and Yitty. I was accompanied by Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, who biked over. This naturally fully kosher establishment offers delicious thin crust pizza, fries, cheese latkes, poutine, calzones, salads, garlic rolls,  soft drinks and slush. Very soon, a breakfast service will be introduced.


Yanky’s is still in its infancy stage, so Jacob has yet to launch a website or any social media channels.  There are four booths that can seat four people each, four stools at the counter and some tables outdoors. Pickup is available, with delivery coming soon. However, if you have a large enough order and you are within the city limits, a staffer will bring it to your home.

“As a Yeshiva student I learned how to cook and I really like it,” said Jacob.

“At home he is the best cook for me and our two boys,” Gitty chipped in.  



Jacob said he first started eyeing this location, which is part of the old Quality Fruit spot, more than a year ago. It required a significant financial investment, notably the installation of a pizza oven. “We truly built this place from scratch,” he said proudly. “Now we want to get the word out to the community to please come support us. We can make pizzas for your parties. Call in an order when you are coming back from work. We are here to serve.”

You can call 438-818-PIZA (7492), email [email protected].  It is located at 5816 Westminster.
