French Cuisine Comes to Old Main 627

SUISUN CITY - The old Main 627 restaurant in Suisun City will soon have a new owner and menu.

Su Song, owner of the Old Post Office Seafood & Grill in Vacaville, plans to open his first restaurant in Suisun City in May. The restaurant will serve his traditional blend of California French food, full of healthy alternatives for calories-counting customers.

"I'm really excited about the location because we are restoring an historic building," Song said. "This restaurant will be smaller than the one in Vacaville, it only sits 45 people. It will give our customers a more intimate ambiance for their eating experience."

The old Main 627 restaurant was owned by Ismael Guillen for nearly 20 years. Guillen sold the restaurant in 2005, but took back control and reopened in 2006. The restaurant was permanently closed in 2006.

"Suisun City does not have the kind of food that we offer," Song said. "I think its going to be a great addition."

His menus are for people who enjoy French food, but who want to eat it and be healthy, he said.

"A lot of people love French food," he said. "But French food is very heavy on sauces and butter. We cook French food but we make it lighter. I started cooking it this way, once people started changing their eating habits . This is a formula that worked well in San Francisco, where I was a chef for 20 years."

According to Song, the idea to open the new restaurant came from the many customers who travel from Napa and Fairfield and other cities to eat at his Vacaville establishment. When the restaurant opens, it will employ from 20 to 30 people.

"It's going to be a casual restaurant," Song said. "Our menu is full of quality items, and the location is perfect."
