What was Perla is now Fairfax, a more casual, all-day café modeled after relaxed European wine bars. It’ll open at 8 a.m. daily with a breakfast menu that includes an omelette with pattypan squash and grilled-apricot toast. At 11 a.m., the menu transitions with small plates like steak tartare and white-bean hummus on flatbread, plus an extensive wine list, and Fairfax stays open until between 10 p.m. and midnight throughout the week. Its filled with couches and communal tables a first for Stulman making it feel like a real living room, or the tiny, Platonic ideal of a hotel lobby bar. Stulman and his wife, Gina, are avid furniture collectors, and they’re using pieces from their personal collection in the space. The design is also flexible to parties of different sizes you can post up in a corner and take over, adding friends and entertaining like it’s your own place. As much as Stulman’s blurring the line between restaurant and bar, he also wants Fairfax to serve the functions of a great coffee shop.
