A very nice lady named Joanna writes:

I translated the Nowy Dzennik bit you quoted in this piece

“In turn, from the management of the locale we found out that, indeed Polonaise Terrace will be closing and will only be functioning until the 30th of September, although he says the location has not been sold. “We will 100% be closing the restaurant at the end of September, however information regarding the sale is gossip” — said one of the managers of the firm, who also did not want to be named.”

Hope that helps a bit. Although I’ve never been to Polonaise Terrace, I’m sad to see another Polish establishment closing down.

Thanks for doing what you do!

No, thank you for the kind words and translation!
