When patrons come into The League Kitchen & Tavern in Lakeway, they can be ready for comfort food classics in a relaxed atmosphere.
Creed Ford, co-founder of the business, said he wanted visitors to be comfortable whether they’re in a suit and tie from the office or if they’re in their golf shorts.
The walls are decorated with historic photos replicated from ones found in the Library of Congress photo archive, lending a warm, time-tested ambiance to the dining experience.
“Creating the menu was a team effort with Creed and myself,” Executive chef Devan Gernert said. “We wanted to do a scratch kitchen. So scratch cooking in a volume kitchen like this just takes a lot of organization and forecasting.”
That means Gernert has to guess what will be popular and keep enough of it on hand. The restaurant doesn't have a freezer, so everything must be purchased fresh and prepared right away.
Gernert said it takes about 100 recipes to execute the restaurant’s menu but it’s worth it – the food is what keeps people coming back.
