Chef Augie keeps a watchful eye over The Front Burner with his wife, Sharon. Veterans of the food and hospitality industry, Augie and Sharon bring a lifetime of experience.
They have spent their lives learning the ins and outs of the food business and are always working to find new ways to bring innovative thoughts and ideas to the gourmet community. Augie and Sharon always want to show Springfield that they very much support the local farmers and community and want to couple this passion with their love for simple and seasonal food. They also are owners of the Front Burner’s sister restaurant, American Harvest.
We are a locally focused, small plate restaurant with a Southern influenced menu and hospitality to match. We source everything we can within an 80 mile radius of Springfield, including our cornmeal, proteins and vegetables. We take endless pride in offering the best selection of classic craft cocktails around and a wide variety of craft beers.
