Le Vacher, a new French-inspired restaurant that announced last year it was developing a location in Dripping Springs, will officially open Aug. 7.

According to a news release by the restaurant, Le Vacher will bring French-inspired dishes to the Texas Hill Country using Texas ingredients with a menu featuring Crispy Spaetzle, Classic Steak Tartare, and Foie Gras Parfait. Le Vacher will also have brunch and lunch menus.

The restaurant’s bar will serve seasonal cocktails and a standing menu as well as wine offerings.

“I am incredibly excited to provide high-quality food and service to the community of Dripping Springs. I’ve always found myself more comfortable in a smaller town and I’m ready to know all of our guests so I can make sure they’re as excited as I am,” chef Jacob Euler said in the news release. “Opening during the pandemic has been a huge learning experience and we are grateful for the opportunity to challenge ourselves in taking our guests’ health into consideration with everything we do.”

Due to COVID-19, Le Vacher will open with safety precautions in place. Tables will be spaced out to encourage social distancing, and cleaning practices will be consistent with state recommendations, according to the news release.


Located at 136 Drifting Wind Run, Ste. 101, Dripping Springs, reservations are available for service inside and on the patio. 512-337-6977. www.levachertx.com
