Martine, situated in an old, beautiful brownstone building downtown, has been pleasing customers with its world cuisine since 1999. Owner Scott Hale and Chef Tom Grant serve an eclectic array of tapas and other dishes. Grant’s menu is influenced by his love and knowledge of Mediterranean, Spanish and North African cuisines and features dishes such as mustard-crusted beef tenderloin, braised duck breast with roasted autumn vegetables and fried Pacific cod with Moroccan carrots. Dining in the classy but casual Martine can range from a glass of wine and a tapa to a full multicourse extravaganza. A very fairly priced wine list just adds to the appeal.
