Restaurants in Asheville

Asheville has a dynamic (and delicious) culinary scene, thanks to its farm-to-table culture, and a palate that loves plenty of classic Southern fare, “slow food,” and global cuisine. Take your time and savor a meal at one of the best restaurants in Asheville.

Table Restaurant is a warehouse-like Asheville restaurant helmed by Brooklyn transplants, decorated with hand-hewn maple tables topped with local daisies, echinacea, and bachelor's buttons. The menu highlights—such as bucatini with fresh snap peas and pancetta—are largely sourced from area farms. Zambra Wine & Tapas has Spanish and Portuguese tapas that blend with Iberian wines in a romantic spot over the town’s best bookstore. Early Girl Eatery is an Asheville restaurant great for updated, farm-to-table Southern foods—country ham, sautéed river trout, and buttermilk cake with chocolate sour cream frosting. They also offer a nice selection of local craft beers. Plant is a restaurant in Asheville and a highlight along the Barbecue Belt. It offers southern-influenced Jerk—grilled tempeh, smashed sweet potatoes, sautéed collards, and spicy serrano crudo—and an excellent smoked portobello steak. Desserts include gooey chocolate–peanut butter pie.
