West Asheville Welcomes The BarleycornNew pub puts global twist on fare + RECIPE
|The Barleycorn features a comfortable, neighborhood atmosphere.|
Along with new shops and bars, there has been a burst of new restaurants. One of the new eateries, The Barleycorn, seeks to be a social neighborhood joint with global influences.
The concept is modeled after English-style gastropubs, and the menu is inspired by bold spices from India, sauces from Argentina, classic dishes from France and flavors from Mexico. Chef Greg Campbell also cooks up "twisted traditions," fresh takes on bangers and mash and welsh rarebit.
