Fairfield California Restaurants
The property was renovated in the early 2000s when the owners entered into a lease agreement to renovate and rent the apartments and repair the facade. It is a mixed-use building with residential units, retail and office space. The restaurant, a collaboration between the restaurant owners Francesco and Heidi Pfeiffer, opened in October 2014, just a few months after the renovation, on the ground floor of the building.
After four years, we decided to take some time off to focus on our family and closed the business. We ran a small café for a few years while we were looking for a small restaurant, but after four years we decided to close it down and focus on the family.
When we decided to open Crush, we knew we wanted to reach out to some of the same winemakers who had supported us in our previous restaurant, bringing their incredible wines to the heart of downtown Fairfield and combining them with seafood and other carefully selected dishes. When we opened our first restaurant in the area, we were thrilled to discover the wines of Suisun and Green Valley and later we met many winemakers in Pane e Vino.
When we moved to Suisun City, we were introduced to an area that I was completely unaware of.
We admired the corner location in downtown Fairfield as it was busy, but the place needed a new location that would reflect what we wanted. Economic Notes is a weekly series of written updates on the local economy in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we hope you will continue to be kept up to date with the latest news and information about local businesses and businesses in our region to bring something unexpected and new to downtown Fairfield. We are aware that it is important that our location is sunny, bright, clean and welcoming and accessible to a wide range of people.
Could you tell us a little more about what you might see on the menu in the future and why? Can you give us an idea of what we might see in terms of the menu items on our menu and in the future?
After returning to the United States from Italy in 2010, we opened the restaurant Pane e Vino in Suisun. So far we have kept our cool and hope to add BackRoad Vines and a few others very soon.
The salmon pizza had a crispy chewing mixture with an excellent tomato sauce, and one of our companions ordered the salmon salad with fresh rocket, capers and a light dressing. He said the salmon was surprisingly fresh and the pizza was a perfect accompaniment to fresh basil and tomatoes.
The focus is on seafood, as Francesco grew up on the Italian coast and wanted to bring a little taste of seafood. But they add a new twist to the whole by adding some unexpected seafood to the dishes, most of which are designed as a common tapas style, with a wine accompaniment. If you don't like seafood, you can have a more traditional meal, such as a pasta dish or salad or even a pizza.
The restaurant is located on the corner of Main Street in Fairfield, just a few blocks from downtown. It happens to be in the same building as the other two restaurants, but occupies a much larger space, about 1,500 square feet. The restaurant is located at the intersection of State Street and Main Avenue, next to the parking lot of the Alameda County Courthouse.
