Green Valley may get upscale bistro

By Christine Cubé

FAIRFIELD - It looks like Fairfield's about to get a swanky new restaurant.

But no one's ready to talk about it yet.

Real estate sources say Suisun City-based Wiseman Co. has locked in a deal to bring an upscale contemporary Asian restaurant to its Green Valley Executive Center development.

The new restaurant, which sources say is a bistro coming from Vallejo, has not yet been named.

Wiseman Co. broker Kirk Hull didn't return calls seeking comment.

Prior to construction of the executive center, the city of Fairfield required Wiseman Co. include a “white tablecloth” restaurant as part of the development.

Fairfield officials acknowledge there's buzz about the Cordelia restaurant, but Karl Dumas, project manager for the city of Fairfield Redevelopment Agency, couldn't go into specifics.

Fairfield currently has many regional and national chain restaurants, largely concentrated around the Gateway Plaza area. It's the freeway exposure that fills restaurant seats there.

Cordelia isn't the only part of the city that officials want to lure upscale restaurants.

“We're still looking to get white-tablecloth restaurants in downtown,” Dumas said. “It'll take a lot of support from the community. You're going to have to have community support to come into your restaurant on a regular basis and that's the challenge.”

Wiseman Co. also is handling the office leasing at the executive center.

Among the new tenants will be Pazdel Chiropractic, which is moving its offices to 5030 Business Center Drive.

Construction of the Green Valley Executive Center is expected to be complete by the end of 2006.
