Craft 260 Bistro is the brainchild of three local professionals, who ‘have always wanted to have something of their own.’ Two of the owners are long steeped in the restaurant business, and the third is an Electrical Contractor and resident of Fairfield. Co-owners, Chef Vincent Mascaro, Managers Kosta Proskinitopoulos and Tomer Raviv have left no detail untouched in this American industrial mix style Bistro. They have created the Menu, the Bar Spirits, the handmade lighting, and décor’ and even the large table that seats up to 14 guests. Their hope is to get to know each and every guest personally and to have them stay and ‘feel comfortable hanging out’.

“We want to bring back what dinner used to be,” said Chef Mascaro. “When you sit down around the table and enjoy the people you’re with, take the time to decompress and enjoy relationships.”

Craft 260 boasts fresh daily deliveries of produce, seafood, meats and breads with which to create their exceptional menu.
