Polish eatery opens in Elk Grove Village
Polish food served up at picnics, festivals and markets over the past year has found a permanent home in Elk Grove Village.
Tata's Pierogi Co., owned by Leszek Jakubowski and Aneta Olesiak, opened its doors at 554 E. Devon Ave. for a ribbon-cutting celebration Thursday night.
The Polish comfort food restaurant offers pierogies, as well as a fusion of traditional recipes passed down for generations and modern twists on Polish cuisine, Jakubowski said.
Jakubowski was inspired to open the business after spending the past 15 years renovating restaurants with his construction company
"We've worked on a numerous amount of restaurants from Mexican to all-American to classic pizza places, and lately Mediterranean restaurants," he said. "But there was always something missing: a modern Polish cuisine establishment."
