Lost Restaurants of Fairfield
Nothing brings people together like good food. The rich culinary history of Fairfield, Connecticut has been drawing the community together since the town’s early beginnings. From the Sun Tavern where George Washington really did enjoy some victuals to The Scenario where local celebrities had regular seats at the bar, Fairfield’s past will forever be tied to the eateries and watering holes that defined generations. Former wait staff, bartenders, restaurant owners and diners wax nostalgic as they reminisce about the town’s most beloved old haunts. It’s a smorgasbord of memories complete with donuts from Devore’s, nachos from Sidetrack’s, chili from Kuhn’s and an ice cold beer from The Driftwood.
