Station 1 restaurant opens in Woodside By Jane Knoerle

It's a new era for Woodside's first firehouse. The little red building, built at 2991 Woodside Road in the 1920s, has reopened as a new restaurant, Station 1.

For 16 years, it was the site of John Bentley's restaurant. Last spring, Mr. Bentley sold the restaurant to Kristi Borrone and her husband, Zu Tarazi, who both come from Cafe Borrone in Menlo Park. Mr. Tarazi is also a former general manager at the Redwood City John Bentley's.

The 50-seat dining room has been remodeled with reclaimed oak floors and a fireplace, creating a cozy atmosphere.

The chef is Zack Freitas. The restaurant focuses on seasonal organic food. The menu is a three-course prix fixe for $49. Among items recently featured were smoked kale soup, squid with barley, salmon with cauliflower and mushrooms, Muscovy duck with brown rice and apricot, artisan cheeses with pear honey and fig preserve, white chocolate brioche, and Meyer lemon panna cotta. The menu changes frequently.

Cocktails and wine, by the glass or bottle, are available.

Station 1 is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, from 5 to 9:30 p.m. For reservations, call 851-4988.
