Homegrown restaurateur Larry McGuire recently revitalized Clarksville’s beloved Jeffrey’s steakhouse this year and rave reviews of the French American haunt have been rolling in since its reopening. The chi-chi vibe starts curbside, with pink seersucker-clad valets, and extends to the lavish interior and menu, with accouterments like martini carts and Petrossian caviar service. Find a seat at the bar during happy hour (4:30–6:30 and all night Sunday and Monday) when
all bar food is half price. The crispy fried Gulf oysters are still a hot ticket—and a mainstay of Jeffrey’s past—and the Wagyu burger is succulent. Plus, it’s a treat to watch the bow-tied bartenders whip up elaborate pre-Prohibition classics and other whimsical (oft times, off-menu) libations.
