SUISUN CITY - Soo Song's new restaurant in Suisun City has the ambiance of New Orleans' famous French Quarter and a menu rich in his blend of California French food.
The Main Street Bar & Grill is where the former Main 627 restaurant used to operate. Song also owns the Old Post Office Seafood & Grill in Vacaville.
"I want to give people the kind of dining experience that they would expect in Napa and San Francisco, but without that huge price tag," Song said. "We chose Old Town Suisun City because it is easily accessible, there are new developments being constructed and the area is in a great location close to the water."
Song has kept many of the original features of the historic building, adding hardwood floors, and exposing the bricks on the walls to bring life into the building. The walls of the dining area are decorated with black and white pictures of Suisun City through the ages.
The old Main 627 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 permanently closed in 2006.
The upstairs bar has also been remodeled and it will host live music once a week. The banquet room has room for 45 people and it can be used for meetings and private parties.
"I think our customers will like the location because it has great views and the quality of our food will wow them," said Song. "In order to make great food you have to used fresh products, that is the standard that I've had for all my restaurants and that's what people can expect when they eat here."
While he does not think of himself as a kitchen czar, Song is involved in every aspect of the two restaurants. He is committed to creating a consistency in his dishes and give customers a high standard of quality to enjoy.
"All my chefs know the way I want things done," he said. "I've trained them to prepare the dishes in a particular way so that our customers know what to expect at every meal. Our reputation is very important."
For the 25 years that Song has been in the restaurant industry, creating new dishes and working on presentation are still two of his highlights.
"People don't need to drive far away to eat great food," he added. "We are an a great destination for residents of Suisun City and Solano County."
