About Us

The Front Room Restaurant emerged on the San Francisco's Nob Hill  in 1967. Sarn Davull, famous local restaraunteur, secured locations throughout the Bay Area including  Clement Street, 9th and Judah, Dewey Street, Alameda and Concord.

In 1972, Steven Rice purchase all of the front room locations. At the 1500 California Street location, he sold the back of the restaurant , called "The Back Room" to Larry Ayre, former manager of the existing Front Room. It was, in turn changed to a Scottish-style pup and renamed the John Barleycorn.

The Laghaei family purchased the California Street location in 1980. After the death of his parents in 1994, Farid Laghaei took full control of the restaurant, establishing the Front Room as the city's new hot spot. by introducing the ever-popular "Beer Nights." serving pitchers at extremely low prices - a tradition still enjoyed today.

In January 2001, the adored Farid fell ill, his wife Lori, took care of him as well as the Front Room. From the time of the 9-11 tragedy as well as a time of tragedy for the Laghaei family, Lori kept the front room going and continued to help her husband until he passed away in July of 2003 at the age of 32. She continued to keep Farid's legacy alive by making the front room a great place for family and friends to meet.

We now face the end of an era. Ms Luisa Hanson. a restaraunteur, recently purchased the building at 1550 California Street and refused to renew the leases for the Front Room and the John Barleycorn on the approach of our 40th anniversary. We choose to continue this San Francisco tradition at our new location, just down the road at 1550 California Street.
