Concepts one might have previously identified as being the domain of big city life are starting to populate smaller towns outside of Austin.


The rapidly growing town of Dripping Springs next year will welcome French country restaurant Le Vacher. The restaurant, its name translating to “The Herdsman,” comes from chef-owner Jacob Euler will source Texas ingredients for a Lone Star take on a brasserie.


The menu from the classically trained chef who has worked as a pastry chef at the restaurants of Michael Mina and Chef JoŽl Robuchon will include tarrtiflette Alsacienne, a warm potato casserole with bacon and Muenster cheese and meats like chicken, pork chop, and New York strips cooked sous vide, finished on the plancha and served with pomme frites, garlic aioli and a choice of sauce.


Euler is a native of Washington D.C. but was inspired by the homey country cooking he associated with his mother’s hometown of Honey Grove, Texas.


“I cook because I enjoy bringing people together and I've found that people connect the most over good food. Dripping Springs is growing every day and I’m excited to bring fine dining with a welcoming atmosphere to the Hill Country,” Euler said.


Le Vacher will be located at 136 Drifting Wind Run, Suite 101. Visit LeVacherTX.com for more and chart the restaurant’s progress on Instagram @levachertx.
