About Brooklyn Phil’s

It all began in 1969 in the streets of Brooklyn with a little boy who grew up poor and dreamed of having his own family pizzeria. Determined to create his own destiny, he began working odd jobs at the young age of 10 while going to school. He graduated from high school and put himself through college. In order to fulfill his dream, he knew he must first create a career which would afford him the financial means. Opportunity came knocking which led Phil from Brooklyn, to move to Houston in 1998 and so the legacy began to unfold.

Once Phil moved from Brooklyn to Houston, his dream of opening his own family style Italian Restaurant became even more of a priority. That is because Phil could not find any place in Houston that combined the authentic NY style Italian food he longed for, with the family friendliness and personal touch that he became accustomed to in Brooklyn.

After working for a couple of companies, Phil realized the only way to fulfill his dream was to become an entrepreneur. Over the course of the next dozen years, Phil, with a lot of hard work, long hours, and luck was now the proud owner of several successful companies.

The time had arrived. In 2013, after years of hard work and determination, Brooklyn Phil’s opened. It is not only the realization of Phil’s dream of owning an authentic Italian family style restaurant but it provides him with the resources to give back to the community. It is with the support of our guests that we are able to realize the dream of giving back to the community in which we do business.
