A seemingly “Mom and Pop” luncheonette by day, a bustling restaurant by night – people don’t go to Jeffrey’s Grocery for a gallon of milk. The cool, relaxed vibe is similar to those at sister restaurants in the neighborhood, Joseph Leonard and Fedora – and token no reservation policy that leaves packs of loiterers outside the door.
Decorated like a vintage, “side-of-the-road” market you’d find in the country, Jeffrey’s Grocery manages to keep it casual while staying stylish.
Jeffrey’s Grocery brands itself as an oyster bar, and serves a variety of fresh options from both the east & west coasts. Aside from raw bar items, the menu offers appetizers and hearty entrees that are all great for sharing. Our faves include the English peas & burratta, braised brisket sandwich and lobster spaghetti.
Seating options at this small, cozy space are limited, so keep your parties under four and expect to eat at the counter or crammed communal bar tables. While reservations are not accepted, you can put your name in and grab a drink elsewhere to kill the time (try squeezing into Joseph Leonard down the street for one of their specialty cocktails).
Appetizers from $11+; entrees from $15+.
