FAIRFIELD — After 15 years, Chef’s Table will be moving its location this fall.

The restaurant will remain close by, soon serving customers across the street from the Shell gas station on the Post Road in Fairfield. Richard Herzfeld, the owner of Chef’s Table, said the decision to move came when the restaurant’s lease was up for renewal.

“We just decided to move because we had the opportunity when our lease was up,” he said. “Moving to the Post Road will give us a lot more exposure, and it’s a more open area.”

The restaurant will not be making any major changes after it moves, and all current staff will be kept on board.

“We’re basically going to be replicating what we have now. We’ll have the same look, same artwork and we’ll have the same staff with us,” Herzfeld said. “We’ll pretty much be doing the same thing we’re doing now. The new location is a little smaller, but we have extra room right now, so that should be fine.”

Live performances during lunch and dinner will continue at the new location, and Herzfeld plans to purchase new equipment for them. The restaurant owner also said he hopes the new location will bring in more customers for breakfast.

“We’re hoping to get a commuter breakfast once we move. We’ve really expanded our breakfast menu in the past year,” Herzfeld said. “Moving down the Post Road should make it easier for people to stop in during the morning. We’re really hoping to capitalize on breakfast.”

The restaurant will have more available parking in the new location than it currently does, which Herzfeld said should make it easier for customers driving to the restaurant.

“There are a lot of spots for parking around the area. We’ll probably have about 24 spots in our parking lot,” he said.

Herzfeld expects the restaurant to keep some of its current business, as well as attract new customers.

“A lot of our business drives to us. So for them, I don’t think it will make much of a difference. Half of the other customers might think it’s too far to walk. It’s hard to say,” Herzfeld said. “I know there’s a lot of offices around where we’re moving, so I’m hoping we’ll get some new business from the offices in that area.”

The process of building the restaurant in its new location is still in the early stages, but the goal is to be complete this autumn.

“We’re still working on getting permits so we can start building,” said his daughter, Shelby Herzfeld, “but we’re hoping we can open by September or October.”
