Correction: An earlier post of this announcement mentioned an event May 29. That event is private. Our apologies!
Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden has named Jeff White as executive chef, promoting an accomplished member of the restaurant’s team. White was previously executive sous chef at the restaurant and was part of the team that opened the restaurant in 2012.
Born and raised in San Antonio, White helped craft the Boiler House menu. His culinary experience includes such prestigious kitchens as Biga on the Banks, L’Etoile, Acenar, Grey Moss Inn and The Westin River Walk, as well as Austin’s Louis 106 and Palmers in San Marcos. White also has worked with chef/owner Johnny Hernandez at his True Flavors Catering Company.
White has received several awards and recognitions, including an invitation to cook a dinner as the featured chef at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City, the People’s Choice Award for the Taste of Elegance, a spot in “Who’s Who in Restaurant Business,” a feature on the cover of San Antonio Magazine and a medal from the American Culinary Federation.
Boiler House is a wine-centric, Texas-style restaurant featuring grilled dishes from local farms and markets and wines from around the world. Housed in the original boiler house that powered the Pearl Brewery during its heyday, the restaurant’s building dates to 1896 and is one of three original structures remaining on the brewery campus.
Boiler House features two floors of dining, as well as an expansive outdoor patio. Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden is located at 312 Pearl Parkway, Building 3, in the shadow of the Pearl brewhouse.
As executive chef, White does not plan to change the Boiler House menu.
“We feature farm fresh ingredients, so we’ll have seasonal changes and we’re always looking at different angles on grilling and Texas cuisine. We’ll be rotating in some new proteins to accompany the new market dishes as spring and summer vegetables become available, but our entire opening team worked to create a lasting menu that has gained fans—we don’t want to disappoint anyone by dropping something they enjoy,” White explained. “At the same time, I like to introduce people to new flavors and ingredients they may not know, so expect some surprises.”
Boiler House is open Monday – Wednesday, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Thursday – Friday, 11 a.m. – midnight; Saturday, 10 a.m. – midnight and Sunday, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. For the latest Boiler House news, menu and drink specials, follow Boiler House on Facebook, “The Boiler House SA” or on Twitter, “@boilerhousesa.”
