Greater Hartford, Party of 8?
Trying to think outside the box of usual places, we are looking for an interesting restaurant (good food and service) to accommodate our party of 8, not a rowdy group. So, a round table and a quiet enough restaurant would be great so we can talk to and hear each other. We all live in the West Hartford, Simsbury, West Simsbury area, but we're willing to travel for something new and delicious!

I think one of the best meals going in Hartford (and I've been looking for 43 years) is the Polish National Home, close to downtown. It's at 60 Charter Oak Avenue. They have some of the best perogi I have ever had and the keibasa is fantastic. On Sunday afternoons, they broadcast music right from the restaurant.
The other place I like also very authentic, is the First and Last on Wethersfield Ave.
It's not "outside the box"..but Max Downtown in Hartford has a large round table set off in a nook at the back of the restaurant..it looks over the Goodwin Hotel..I've sat there with a party of 8 and it's cozier than being in the middle of the room..
We went to this restaurant Saturday night.

They do not have round tables, but there is an area by the fireplace that would seat 8 at a rectangular table. You would not feel rushed, and it is a very homey atmosphere. I had a tilapia special which was very good.
