In Asheville, we believe every meal should be a celebration, an experiential adventure meant to be savored and shared with family and friends. We believe our Southern roots, mountain spirit and locavore sensibilities have created a food community that transcends the farm-to-table movement, culminating in an all-out way of life. It's a culinary culture uniquely ours, one where the experience remains with you long after the final bite.
Dine at one of hundreds of independent restaurants in Asheville and you too will believe in the fine quality of artisanal cheese, chocolates and bread; the flavorful craftsmanship behind each microbrew; and the freshness of locally-sourced vegetables from one of many mountain area tailgate markets. Come taste for yourself and discover how Asheville became a favored destination for food enthusiasts and earned its place on the culinary map.
