    Austin’s newest private dining space offers views of historic Clarksville neighborhood.

     
    FROM THE Winter 2018 ISSUE
     

A private dining area called The Apartment, has been added to Jeffrey’s in Austin. Jeffrey’s is a full-service restaurant with several dining rooms and a bar that seats 80 total guests. The newly added space, which can accommodate 20 seated guests or 30 standing, offers a choice of family style menus featuring dry-aged prime beef and American classics and has its own personal bartender.

Partners Ron and Peggy Weiss and Jeff Weinberger opened Jeffrey’s in 1975 to bring a simple café to the quiet, historic Clarksville neighborhood in Austin. 

Reimagined and completely renovated in 2012 by Austin chef Larry McGuire and Tom Moorman and their team, the restaurant is now owned by McGuire Moorman Hospitality, which upholds the restaurant’s legacy of simply prepared seasonal cooking and delicious wines —all with friendly, professional service. Groups love the crispy fried Gulf oysters, Niman Ranch center-cut tenderloin filet and baked Alaska.  

“I sought to incorporate contrasting visuals and flavors in Fine China’s beverage program. The solid black color of the Pitch Black has guests assuming that it would taste dark and rich. However, this drink is actually refreshing and light in flavor (and has quickly become one of our favorite cocktails in the restaurant).” —Kyle Hilla, beverage director of The Statler
