After nearly three years in business, Ridgefield's Prime Taco closed its doors permanently on Thursday, Aug. 27.
"We have prided ourselves in serving this unbelievably supportive community in Ridgefield for almost three years," wrote co-owners Ed Bistany, Bob Sperry and Anthony Valente wrote on the business's Facebook page. "Serving up the highest quality product and customer service to you all has brought our owners and staff such gratitude beyond anything we could have imagined.
"We will truly miss those smiling faces that counted on us for lunch, dinner, take-home taco kits, and more. Thank you for welcoming our family into yours. We have loved every moment of it."
The restaurant, located at 32 Danbury Rd., was known for its ready-made taco kits, margaritas and ten signature tacos.
Chef Paul Desiano, the Director of Food Services at Ridgefield Academy, crafted the restaurant's menu along with his wife and co-chef, Ai Desiano.
“I had so much fun in creating the menu (for Prime Taco)," said Desiano in a statement issued at the restaurant's opening in 2017. "We tried to walk a fine line between traditional flavors yet still allowing our tacos that ‘California Cool’ touch, all while still staying family friendly."
The owners of Prime Taco will continue to operate Prime Burger, also in Ridgefield, and their butcher shop Ridgefield Prime.
