Chef’s Table Now Serving Cross Highway

Christie’s Country Store closed in December.

But less than 4 months later, the 6-decade Cross Highway tradition continues.

Chef’s Table opened today. That’s good news for residents of the Cross Highway neighborhood. As well as workers and delivery people in that area. Plus of course students at nearby Staples High and Bedford Middle Schools.

Owner Rich Herzfeld and son Dave — who will manage the eat-in/takeout breakfast-sandwich-grill-soup-pizza-and more place — greeted a steady stream of happy customers, starting early this morning.

In February, Rich told “0688o” he hoped to open by April 1.

He made good on that goal. (No fooling!)

Staples High School students enjoy the new spot.

That’s a great omen for Chef’s Table, which began in Westport (both locations closed after the 2007 recession), and now includes a very popular spot in Fairfield.

And for everyone else hungry for — as Chef’s Table’s t-shirts say — “Fine Food Fast.”

Christie’s still lives. In honor of the 93-year-old tradition, the sign says “Chef’s Table at Christie’s Country Store.”
