  1. Don't know where they are from but I keep seeing billboards all around the state advertising pierogis made from some church or organiztion. If I see them soon I will publish their phone # on here.

      Try Baltic Restaurant in Kensington or The Fatherland in New Britain, you won't be disappointed.

        I've worked in New Britain, CT for years. I like Cracovia better than Fatherland. And here's a very odd recommendation - but if you find out when Literacy Volunteers in New Britain is having their annual international potluck supper, for that one night only, you will find the best pierogies anywhere. More than half the adult students are Polish immigrants and every year at least several show their appreciation for the program by bringing delicious homemade pierogies! And hey, maybe you'll end up volunteering... (ok, I admit to personal involvement with this organization!)

    2. Big Y carries pretty good pierogis for cooking at home-- they're called Millie's Pierogies.

      1. There are a number of Polish restaraunts located in New Britain, CT....I've never been to one but I'm told New Britain is the place to go for Polish food!

        1. The pierogies being advertised on the billboards are probably "The Pierogi Priest"'s. Really good pierogies made by Fr. Edmund Nadolny. Couldn't find any info on the web but they can be purchased at "Shop Rite" grocery stores. Also, "The Big E" fair (just a tiny bit out of CT) in Massachusetts has very good pierogies.

          1. Cracovia polish restaurant in New Britain has great fresh pierogis on the menu (along with other traditional dishes). Also, Rosol's (45 Grove St. New Britain) sells peirogis even though they are most know for their amazing smoked kielbasa.

              wow, OLD thread, hoping someone might have a current rec in FFD county? Growing up we always got pierogi from Wozniaks in New Haven, they're still my all time fav, but a little far now. for anyone hitting Wozniaks, here's a tip: during the holidays they hoard them in the back for regulars and tell the non-Polish speakers (ie me, since my Polish speaking relatives have all -pretty much died off) they're all out. give them a sad story (in my case on last visit, it was perfectly true), and dozens will all the sudden become available....

                In Shelton - the edge of Ffld County - there's Polonesz Deli on Route 110 across from Sunnyside School. Haven't been in there terribly recently, but last time I was there they had a large variety of pierogies, plus lots of other Polish specialties. It's a fun place to go, and the help is nice.

                Also Lazowiak's on Route 34 in Derby - very popular, but I get the feeling they hold out on their non-regulars, much like Wozniak's.

                  Yup! Still there. Good selection of bread and sauce-eech too.
