Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Western NC's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
As we are new to the area it was our first visit to Newman's, chosen for Valentine's Day from an Open Table review. It did not disappoint, food was very good as was the friendly service. We have already recommended it for a romantic evening to our Daughter and Son-In-Law, and I am sure we will visit again in the future. MoreOpenTable Diner -

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.
