Veit’s Pub and Grill
Veit’s is back! The grandson of the longstanding family restaurant that closed in 2005 is reopening at a new Jefferson City location. The restaurant will be located off Lorenzo Greene Drive, previously Moose Brothers. Veit’s will serve as a lounge, sports bar and full-service restaurant and eventually feature live music outdoors. A fan of comfort food, owner Sean Veit intends to bring back traditional local favorites including fried chicken, prime rib and clam chowder with a variety of weekend specials.
The new restaurant will pay homage to the previous establishment’s ’40s and ’50s theme by incorporating old menus, posters and other memorabilia, including the iconic red gas pumps that stood out front of the original restaurant. Veit’s Pub and Grill opens in late June.
Proprietor: Sean Veit
Address: 2314 Lorenzo Greene Drive
JCMG Women and Children’s Center
In June, Jefferson City Medical Group celebrated the opening of its new Women and Children’s Center. The new facility features all new equipment, two large procedure rooms and larger hallways and was designed to feel like a more homey atmosphere. New interior design elements include a fireplace, chandelier and comfortable furnishings. Every element of the center was designed with patients’ needs in mind, including a lowered reception counter, rounded corners on all counters, couches in several exam rooms and a procedure room.
The new facilities offer a more welcome environment for patients and a closer, more central location to other JCMG services. JCMG Pediatrics was previously located in another part of the JCMG complex at 1241 W. Stadium Blvd., and the Women’s Clinic of JCMG was located in the Medical Plaza building beside St. Mary’s Health Center.
Address: 1241 W. Stadium Blvd.
Cliff Manor Bed and Breakfast
Jefferson City’s only B&B, Cliff Manor Bed and Breakfast, has reopened under new ownership, with a new innkeeper in residence. Lenore Abboud, formerly from Austin, began serving guests over Memorial Day weekend. The business features a new dining room, new chandeliers and a refreshing new look to the décor. Two suites with Jacuzzi tubs and fabulous views of the Missouri River await guests celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions. Two other guest rooms are adjacent to a large second-story balcony with rocking chairs and a wonderful city view.
Built in 1866, Cliff Manor was purchased earlier this year by Communique Inc., a public relations firm based in Jefferson City. Refurbishing of the inn began immediately after the purchase, and a grand opening is planned for late summer after renovations are complete.
Proprietor: Lenore Abboud
Address: 722 Cliff St.
