Fodor's Expert Review Jeffrey's

$$$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area French

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.
