Hotels in Shenandoah + The Blue Ridge Mountains

While a trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway will probably involve a good amount of meals eaten at rest stops, it’s worth visiting the handful of fantastic farms and restaurants in the Blue Ridge Mountains along the way. Those driving through North Carolina looking for Blue Ridge Mountains restaurants will want to stop off at The Admiral in Asheville or the Knife & Fork in nearby Spruce Pine. The latter specializes in delicious farm-to-table fare with dishes like pulled pork and mustard green sandwiches and seared rabbit loin with chestnuts and carrots. There’s also the Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, VA, which features a wonderful charcuterie program, and Zynodoa in Staunton, VA, which specializes in “inspired Southern cuisine.” Finally, gastronomes will find that there are even more great Blue Ridge Mountains restaurants in the large and small towns throughout the region as well as great local farms and agricultural projects. It’s only a matter of keeping an eye out for road signs leading to the next culinary adventure.
