A word from Corner Kitchen
Tucked into a quiet corner of Biltmore Village is one of Richard Sharp Smith's original Tudor Style cottages, and one of Asheville's most surprising restaurants. Chef Joe Scully brings years of culinary experience to bear in his special North Carolina take on Pan-American cuisine (he calls it "Caromerican"), while host Kevin Westmoreland makes you feel as welcome as an old friend at breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Dine in the sunny “Side Porch”, where tables cluster around a generous bar, or in one of the cozy fireplace rooms - upstairs or down. When the weather's right, relax on the Patio and take in the singular beauty of Historic Biltmore Village. If you are looking for the perfect spot for your next meeting, luncheon or other group function, call or email and make arrangements for an unforgettably great special event.

    Our favorite waiter Eddie Delaney wasn't there; however, we were introduced to Even and he was fabulous. Both men make the BEST COCKTAILS in all Asheville. Tom, the manager was quite attentive. Can't wait to return. Thanks guys.....Brian and Larry, the Greatest Spokesmen for CK.

    We have eaten at Corner Kitchen almost every time we have been to Asheville. The food has always been good but this time it was outstanding. I had the pork chops and my wife had the flounder, they were both incredible. The only negative is that they do not offer much of a selection when it comes to wines by the glass.

    For our first time in Asheville, I researched restaurants on line and found the Corner Kitchen. We had a wonderful three course dinner and enjoyed it so much, we went back for lunch the next day. The food is fabulous, healthy choices and not overly expensive. The 100 plus year old house was quaint, and although we ate inside, there was a nice patio available too. I highly recommend reservations or you will have a long wait....but worth it! The Biltmore Village has such great history and ambiance, and this restaurant fits right in with that vintage feel. We really enjoyed shopping for local art and then we both had incredible salads for our second visit to the Corner Kitchen. The beer and wine list is good, with local flair.

    A great dining experience from beginning to end. Small menu which changes often. Plenty of choices and interesting combinations from simple to more trendy. Everything great and the service and recommendations terrific. Oh and the wine list had great choices at moderate prices. Wish I lived in Asheville

    We knew that the ambiance in this 100-yr-old "English cottage" would be great, and the place had a good rep among foodies. All of this was true, but: 1) The dining room we were in was too dark 2) Service was "casual" at best, slightly condescending at worst 3) Food was not hot 4) They charged for a basket of good ciabata, so-so corn muffins. Charged? In Asheville?? Come on! In sum, interesting location, interesting menu, not a meal to write home about.

    We have visited Asheville 4 times in the last 8 months. Since we discovered Corner Kitchen on our first visit, we have repeatedly gone back, while also trying other restaurants in town. Their selection is excellent, prices are fair, the atmosphere is fine, and every meal we have ordered has consistently been first rate. Even their cocktails are great! Highly recommend.

    My cousin and I had a wonderful brunch at Corner Kitchen on Sunday and our food was perfect. We ordered omelets and they were great. The sides of potatoes and grits were both delicious and the biscuits hot and fluffy. This restaurant has consistently good food, we always go here when our family is in Asheville.

    Corner Kitchen was a great little place! I liked it being in a house. We ate upstairs, service was good and food arrived fairly quickly. There was a line waiting when we arrived and left, really glad we used open door, it was like having a fast pass. We enjoyed and plan to eat there again when we make it back to Asheville.

    Excellent meal in a casual setting. There is a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, and some bar seating, and for the couple of hours we were there we saw a steady stream of people come and go. The food was very fresh and flavorful. We had a Jamaican jerk chicken - which had a nice tangy spice to it, and a pecan crusted trout, which was light and flaky and very tasty. We were told the menu changes frequently, but everything looked tempting. The wine list was decent, and the selection of other beverage options seemed to be good. The setting in Biltmore Village was quaint and peaceful, and we were seated by the window and could watch people strolling by. Highly recommended.
