Friends, Fans & Followers,
We’re excited to share that our newest restaurant, Fairfax, is now open. Fairfax is named after the area in Virginia where both myself and our chef, Jack Harris, grew up. We open every morning as a café and every afternoon and evening as a neighborhood wine bar and restaurant.
The restaurant is inspired by home living and an eclectic set of new wine bars emerging in cities around the globe. We love that many of these places have a more casual vibe, place an emphasis on the food and seem free to offer whatever dish or wine excites the team that day. We’ve put those principles in the service of an everyday menu at repeatable prices. All morning, Jack and his team will be serving a full, sit-down breakfast menu alongside pastries and coffee to stay or go. Midday, the kitchen will begin offering a larger menu and more shareable dishes.
Fairfax is my West Village living room. We designed it to feel as comfortable as home, day or night, solo coffee, bottle of wine or full meal. Grab a corner of the couch with a newspaper, set up at the bar for a working lunch, or bring your friends for dinner at the table.
Look for friendly faces from Perla cafe, including Chef Jack, who has been with us since before Perla first opened its doors. Jack is joined in kitchen team by our long time Pastry Chef Lindsey Prokscha, who for years has been making guests smile with her wonderful pastries and desserts at Joseph Leonard and Jeffrey’s Grocery. Leading the service team is our General Manager James Lauer, complimented by Beverage Director Nick Grenier, who has been educating all of us through his broad palette and enthusiasm for diverse styles.
We can’t wait to see you at Fairfax! It’s walk-in only, so come on by anytime.
