Local author, Patty Woods recalls the forgotten restaurant gems of Fairfield in her new book, Lost Restaurants of Fairfield (Nov. 30, 2015, paperback $21.99) the newest addition to The History Press’ American Palate series. Woods will be at the downtown Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield, on Saturday, Dec. 19, from noon-3, for an informal meet & greet book signing event.

Lost Restaurants of Fairfield features stunning images and mouth-watering recipes. The culinary history of Fairfield, Connecticut, brims with bygone and beloved eateries and watering holes. Discover some of these lost classics, from the Sun Tavern — where George Washington enjoyed a few victuals—to the Scenario, where local celebrities always had a seat reserved at the bar. The best doughnuts in town were at the corner of Post and Beaumont at Devore’s, while Art Green served up his famous chocolate cream pies at the Pie Plate. Join author Patti Woods for a generous serving of nostalgia complete with nachos from Sidetrack’s, chili from Kuhn’s and maybe even an ice cold beer from the Driftwood.
