As downtown Winston-Salem prepares for a flood of high school students filling restaurants and event centers this prom season, Jeffrey Adams on Fourth has everything covered.
Located at the corner of Fourth and Marshall, Jeffrey Adams is the heart of the Winston-Salem’s restaurant scene and features a dynamic menu that any prom crowd will enjoy. “We’re not fine dining, we’re not mom and pop’s, we’re right in the middle,” co-owner Adam Andrews said. “We hit everybody’s needs. That’s one thing I’ve always loved about us.”
Andrews, who also helps out as a chef on occasion, said the seafood risotto has traditionally been the restaurant’s best seller, though he is partial to the ribeye, “a prime-grade ribeye that is very affordable.”
Jeffrey Adams also features a four-ounce filet plate that many dance-prone prom-goers might be drawn to. The filet also offers lobster, crab cake and scallop additions to customize your meal.
And Jeffrey Adams boasts homegrown vegetables throughout the spring, thanks to Andrews Farm in King. Andrews estimated that 70-80 percent of the menu’s produce is grown on the farm’s 16 raised beds, including tomatoes, cucumbers and a majority of the lettuce.
The menu also has sandwiches covered, with the downtown burger featuring smoked gouda pimiento cheese, as well as the crab cake sandwich and hickory chicken wrap. Jeffrey Adams also features a large number of vegetarian options, ranging from small plates and salads to savory entrées.
“‘Feed the masses,’ as I always say. There’s something for everybody,” Andrews said.
The three-story restaurant offers flexible seating arrangements that can host the smallest groups of just two or four diners to large 30-person parties hoping to spend the night in the company of all their friends.
For groups looking to enjoy a private setting, Jeffrey Adams boasts a large first-floor wine cellar capable of hors d’oeuvres mingling, buffet-style menus or a traditional sit-down meal. Guests who book the wine cellar for the prom-night celebration will also enjoy access to a private TV and an iPod dock, where you decide what music accompanies dinner.
Groups, too, will have the opportunity to customize their menu, if desired. A number of plates, Andrews said, will include a salad, entrée, and drink for around $21. And parents will have the option of prepaying for the meals and gratuity, leaving their students free to eat and enjoy the night.
Just two blocks from one of downtown’s largest parking decks at the corner of Fourth and Poplar, Jeffrey Adams will make prom night stress-free, regardless of the time frame students allot for dinner.
Just blocks from prom sites at the Milton Rhodes Center, the Millennium Center, the Winston-Salem Dash’s BB&T Ballpark and the Piedmont Club, Jeffrey Adams is at the hub of Winston-Salem’s revitalized downtown area.
“With the way downtown is growing, it’s a perfect fit,” Andrews said of the restaurant’s location. “Just being in the business for four years, just seeing Winston grow, we’re just proud to be a part of it.”
While prom dates and locations vary, Andrews recommended booking parties immediately to avoid missing out. For reservations, call Jeffrey Adams at (336) 448-1714.
