My thanks to a reader for these photos of Compane Brick Oven Bistro in Fairport following the New Years fire that has shut the restaurant down indefinitely.
The Messenger Post reports that the fire caused "extensive damage" to the building and an adjacent structure. Firefighters were on the scene from about 3 to 11 a.m. New Years Day. The fire was ruled accidental.
Compane's Facebook page contains numerous posts from customers offering condolences and encouragement. I haven't made it there yet to try one of Compane's wood-fired pizzas, but it's obvious that the restaurant has developed a sizable and loyal clientele since opening last August. I join Compane's patrons in wishing them a speedy return to business, and a grand reopening before too long.
