Meet Jeffrey's, restaurateur Gabe Stulman's attempt to meld a grocery store, an oyster and wine bar, and a luncheonette, opening tomorrow on Christopher and Waverly. Products are sourced from local spots Orwasher's Bakery, Samaki Smoked Fish, Stumptown, and the Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm in LIC. The storefront has been restored to its original 1920s look while the interior is stocked with furnishings and storage containers from antique markets. In sum, it's pretty, it's cool, and the stuff here is quality—like a mini-Eataly...but back in time. Not a surprise given the ethos of its sister restaurant across the street Joseph Leonard.
But for those who don't need to shop, no worries. Jeffrey's serves oysters, scallops, clams, and crabs legs, wine, cheese, charcuterie, and a long roster of salads (Bacon, lettuce, tomato or poached salmon) and sandwiches (roast pork, braised brisket). The market is open from Monday - Friday 8 AM - 9 PM, Saturday and Sunday until 7 PM. The oyster bar is open noon to midnight.
