Fairfield’s Chef’s Table has evolved into a destination for great food and live music
Once a Westport gourmet take-out shop, Fairfield’s Chef’s Table opened in 2001 and has evolved into a downtown destination for great food and live music. “I like to think we were part of the early transition of Fairfield,” says chef/owner Rich Herzfeld. “On any given day you can find a table of police officers, another table of musicians, and another table of landscapers or doctors,” notes Herzfeld.
They come for signature sandwiches like The Cuban and The Marley, which features jerk chicken and frizzled onions that resemble tiny dreadlocks. Don’t miss the self-serve salad bar or the 14 rotating soups. “I’m always talking to people to find out what they want,” explains Herzfeld.
That included adding Paleo options and family-sized take-out containers for easy dinners at home. Recently, he began experimenting with natural bread starters, which led to a new passion for making artisan loaves in small batches. The bread is used for several of the signature sandwiches and are also available for purchase.
