Venue Spotlight | Lenoir

By January 13, 2014Reviews, Venue Spotlight


Since January 2012, Lenoir has been serving Austinites seasonal and adventurous foods that they say match the Texas weather and climate. They call it Hot Weather Cuisine. Restaurant owners, Todd Duplechan and Jessica Maher, have committed not only to using local products, but also producing meals that pair well with our hot Central Texas climate. Lenoir also carries a variety of beers from Austin Beer Works and local wines to pair with the weekly changing dinner menu.


For each event, Lenoir can make a custom menu that works around dietary preferences and allergies. They are very flexible and like to feature wild and exotic proteins or vegetables in their dishes while sticking to their basic philosophy: Texas food for Texas people.


Lenior is available to host special events inside the restaurant, outside in the Wine Garden or both. The dining room seats up to 34 guests which includes tables for 2, a long community table in the center of the space as well as a bar. The room has chic French decor with white wood accents, creating a very romantic setting. The outside Wine Garden also features all white wooden furniture with lanterns and up lighting spread throughout the trees. The garden has its own bar area including an outdoor grill and kitchen.


Parties in the Wine Garden can be as simple and intimate as reserving a private table for 8 to 12 people or the entire backyard and Wine Garden can accommodate up to 90 guests. The outside space is uncovered, but is tentable if weather is a concern. Fans are also posted up in various spots outside for those especially hot days.


Although the restaurant itself is closed on Mondays, Lenoir is open to booking events on a Monday. If you have already chosen a different venue, but are hooked on Lenoir’s concept of “hot weather food”, off-site catering is available. Catering coordinator, Anna Rucker, would love to meet with you to discuss any further rental details or answer any off-site catering questions you may have. Please email her at
