Asheville, NC's Local Food Scene
Local. Home grown. Farm fresh. Serious foodies like to know about their food – and they want it to measure up, not just from farm to table, but from first bite to last. Home to hundreds of independent restaurants, Asheville has garnered attention from locals and visitors alike for its diverse flavor choices.
Area restaurants, featuring everything from barbecue to Indian food, offer samplings of a slice of life as varied and original as Asheville itself.
For breakfast lovers, Early Girl Eatery, Well Bred Bakery and Cafe in Weaverville, Sunny Point Café, City Bakery, Moose Café, and Chorizo offer staples such as eggs, pancakes, ham and biscuits, bread and pastries, and fresh fruit.
For an international flavor, foodies can check out Indian cuisine at Chai Pani and Mela, Mediterranean and Moroccan fare at Jerusalem Garden, Korean dishes at Stone Bowl and Caribbean-inspired cuisine at Nine Mile. Opening soon, customers can enjoy chicken and waffles at King Daddy’s.
Sweets and Treats
Dessert lovers will find an array of delectable offerings to satisfy a sweet tooth, including coconut cake at the Black Bird Restaurant and the beer-a misu (a twist on tiramisu) at Chestnut Restaurant. Other sweet treats are served at French Broad Chocolate Lounge and Ultimate Ice Cream.
Food lovers can enjoy local dishes and tasty creations during Asheville Restaurant Week, January 21–27, 2014. A prix fixe menu, ranging from $15–$30 per person, will be offered by participating restaurants.
