Contemporary American | Waynesville, Asheville

Absolutely the best restaurant in Western North Carolina - perhaps even the entire state. Our server, Kim, was truly fabulous. She is a restaurant professional - had great wine knowledge, knew the menu and its ingredients and source. Terrific personality, wonderful service without hovering, knew exactly when to check in with us. The food is beyond wonderful. Prepared and plated with attention to every detail. More

Discover Asheville

Some of the area chefs in Asheville have nicknamed their town "Foodtopia" because of the area's well-known creative passion for great cuisine. Culinary experts throughout the entire western portion of North Carolina appear to have adopted this sentiment. Elegant fine dining establishments can be found alongside mid-priced luncheonettes. You can find a creative local deli for sandwiches, soups, and salads. Your hotel's dining area may turn out to be a five-star restaurant. Whether you're in Asheville or another Western North Carolina hub, there is no shortage of high-quality food choices. European flavors are popular; German schnitzel with spaetzle shows up on menus around town. Mexican fare is another plentiful option, and Caribbean spices have found a place in the Asheville area too. Many local menus provide vegetarian and vegan choices as well as gluten-free options.
