I use Large Dave’s name on the air, but my real name is Dave Baltrush. Yeah, I know, it’s unusual. My mother’s side was Italian and my father’s side was Polish / Lithuanian. I grew up eating Italian dishes that my grandmother made and my father made Polish specialties. Ms. Large is 100% Polish. It is related to the Prokop family, who own and operate the Janik Sausage Company, and have been making fresh Kielbasa in Enfield since 1899.
We are always on the lookout for unusual cuisine around CT and always stop by if anyone flaunts a Polish flag outside their establishment.
I have noticed the opening of a few new Polish restaurants in the past year, and I love it.

If you can’t make it to New Britain, there is a great place near you where you can enjoy authentic Polish cuisine. Here are 17 great places around Connecticut where you can eat.
