A New Home for the Chef’s Table. O wner Richard Herzfeld says the setting at his Chef’s Table in Fairfield is reminiscent of his high school bedroom. It exudes a Greenwich Village vibe, part comfort-food-sandwich cafe, part reminiscent of jazz clubs one might read about in a Kerouac novel. The Bohemian and earthy space is adorned with lava lamps, a traffic light, various rock band posters and signed memorabilia, and a host of other curios set against brick walls. The look is a sort of a gumbo; the kind of atmosphere that could compliment both a rainy Tuesday night and a sunny Saturday afternoon. Throw in a vast menu of homemade specialties and some live music, and you’ve got a pretty hip scene. By R.J. Scofield. Photos by Rob Staub.
