If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Savor the fruits of our own inventiveness with today's Groupon to Jeffrey's in historic Clarksville. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get $75 worth of gourmet New American cuisine Sunday–Thursday.
- For $30, you get $60 worth of gourmet New American cuisine on Friday and Saturday, though this option will be honored on any day.
Since 1975, Jeffery's has ushered guests into its inviting bistro environment to sample dishes off a menu of small plates, soups, salads, and classic comforts served with gourmet twists. Chef Deegan McClung, former chef of Uchi, stocks Jeffrey's kitchen with many locally produced ingredients to make up menus of savory seasonal dishes and fleeting nightly specials. Start with the steak tartare featuring filet mignon paired with shallots, dijon mustard, pine nuts, quail egg, and more ($15) or another small plate such as ravioli with cabrito ($14). Pan-seared gulf redfishand and marinated romano beans luxuriates with red-bliss-potato, spicy shoots, and smoked tomato vinaigrette ($32), and the roasted poussin sits surrounded by an entourage of castelvetrano olives, garlic confit, and preserved lemon ($33). Diners can finish off the feast with either a lemon-meringue tart with crème anglaise and walnut toffee ($11) or the chef's cheese selections ($7–$19), or both, if their date turns out to be a hologram.
Patrons can choose their own gastronomic adventure with selections from the standard menu or let their palate pore over the Moby Dick of dining with Jeffrey's five-course menu ($75), a selection of chef McClung's favorites.
