Little Pub Opens Today in Fairfield on Black Rock Turnpike

Stephanie Webster

The Little Pubyou know from Ridgefield, Wilton and Cos Cob is opening its fourth location in Fairfieldat the intersection of Stillson Avenue and Black Rock Turnpike. This spot has some history as it housed the Angus restaurant for over 70 years. Owner, Doug Grabe says "It's a cute and cozy building in a perfect neighborhood for Little Pub and we’re really looking forward to serving the Fairfield community."

"Little Pub Fairfield will share the traditional old world charm of our other little pubs with thick plaster walls, hand hewn beams, and antique iron light fixtures," says Grabe. In fact, the team re-purposed over 80 vintage beams from their Cos Cob renovation. A massive stone fireplace serves as the focal point for the main dining room, alongside some wonderful pub decor, including a vintage telephone booth.

What is unique to Fairfield is its size. The dining room is over 50% bigger than Wilton, with 130 seats. Grabe says "The bar alone is bigger than our entire Ridgefield footprint." 

In terms of food and drink, this location will be very similar to their other three spots. All of the food will fall under the $18 price point, the wine list will run from $9-$14, and the beer list will be very affordable. As always all of their signature Little Pub burgers are hand packed daily with a half pound of fresh ground angus beef. There will be 5-7 draft lines and between 60-80 varieties of beer with a strong focus on craft selections. Grabe says "we might also add another beer line dedicated to a local brewery." The menu will change seasonally as it does in its sister locations, and the kitchen will  be overseen by executive chef Tim Passaro Jr. 

"When we opened our first Little Pub, we built a place that we'd actually like to go to," says Grabe. Well, they aren't the only ones. Welcome to Fairfield Little Pub!
