Front Room in Focus By, Marty Ochoa
A favorite restaurant of locals and visitors, Front Room Martinez has crafted a richly satisfying dining experience that features a menu of seasonal and local ingredients, complimented by an inspired wine list recognized for its value. Front Room takes great pride in continuously providing customers the very best and is grateful to be a part of the vibrant community and neighbors from near and far. Whether you’ve come for lunch, dinner, or wine, you will experience exceptional, friendly service and dine at a price you can afford.
As you walk in, you are met with warm, friendly smiles and the aroma of the day’s specials, along with fresh baked bread. The enriched flavors of American nouveau cuisine offer a mouthwatering menu. Garden fresh salads, such as Shrimp Louie or Chef Salad, top the list of six salads and are served with homemade dressings and freshly baked bread sticks. Eight pasta dishes are offered, including the favorite Seafood Linguini, made with succulent scallops, prawns and mushrooms in a clam sauce. If your palate craves chicken, try the Drunken Chicken, sautéed with onions and mushrooms and topped with a brandy white cream sauce. How about seafood, such as prawns, trout, and cioppino? Or beef dishes such as Pepper Steak, Sirloin Tip, and a Front Room favorite, Surf and Turf? Front Room Martinez also offers 14 varieties of half-pound burgers and much more. All burgers and sandwiches come with your choice of onion rings, French fries, or minestrone soup.
Front Room Martinez also takes pride in being recognized as “The Best Pizza in Town,” offering 23 fresh toppings for a “make your own style” pie. From the 7” personal to the 16” large, pizza is always the family favorite, offering regular, thin crust, or the dynamic deep dish.
If you need catering for a social occasion at home, business, or wedding celebration, with creative food, artful presentation, and attentive service, the Front Room Martinez is ready to assist you. They can also host private functions and accommodate groups up to 50.
The Front Room Martinez emphasizes fresh and fine dining for all ages. The atmosphere is friendly, airy, and chic, and the food is a combination of the finest fresh ingredients for subtle American dishes with distinctive flavors of European influence.
