A permanent parking spot 

Anyone who is familiar with the food truck scene in Rochester knows Marty's Meats: the popular sandwich truck is a fixture downtown and at office parks and food truck rodeos. A new brick and mortar location at 703 Park Avenue, Marty's on Park, allows owners Marty O'Sullivan and Paul Koecheler an opportunity to expand their menu which, most importantly, means more meats.

The menu at the new location will always have four proteins (served on a roll), six sandwiches, and four sides. The physical menu was created by local artist, Sarah Rutherford, and consists of framed menu items that can be easily removed and replaced as the offerings change. The majority of the menu will change on a weekly basis, with daily specials available. The sides are seasonal, market driven, and available for $5 — currently available are beets, carrots, mixed greens, and market veggies.

All proteins are $10 and made in house. The pastrami is cured for three weeks and smoked for 12 hours — and the brisket is smoked for 12 hours as well. Rotating through the menu will be pork belly, porchetta, pulled pork, and chicken. For the most part, the sandwiches (all are $9) on the menu are those that patrons of the food truck have grown accustomed to, like the Rosato, comprised of roasted eggplant, pickled onions, lettuce, tomato, provolone and red pepper aioli. Or the Frisket, which is smoked beef brisket, truck-made pickles, and Marty's BBQ sauce. That BBQ sauce is for sale at the new location as well.

Marty's on Park will have a small brunch menu available on Sundays. Permanent hours are still in the works — check Marty's Facebook page for updates.

Marty's on Park is located at 703 Park Avenue, and is open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner, and Sunday for brunch. 434-3292. Visit its Facebook page for daily hours of operation and more information.
