Fine Dining

Husband & I will be staying in Asheville in November and would like a couple of suggestions for fine dining and 2 not to miss lunch spots. It has been about 5 years since our last visit.

Thank you!

Most of our "fine dining" is not necessarily the 4 tiered black tie type service here in Asheville. Most of them allow you to come dressed in "dressy casual" attire. With that said, we do have some pretty decent food here. My personal favorite Chef in town is Bill Klein, at Fig. Table is also good. Rezaz is tasty too. We like the Bistro on the Estate. My foodie friend says that the Red Stag at the Bohemian Hotel is quite good. I believe all of these places serve lunch too. OTher favorite lunch spots - Luella BBQ (it's not Wilbers, but it is closer ;) ), Cheers!

The Admiral is a great choice for fine dining. It doesn't look like it when you drive up but the food is outstanding. Corner Kitchen is nice for lunch. I like the Moose Cafe for lunch at the Farmer's Market. Table is also a great fine dining choice for lunch or dinner. Good luck.

Admiral @ 400 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 828 - 252 - 2541.

Okay, The Admiral... the food is good. The wait is usually long. As for fine dining, it is not. It is a dive bar with booths and tables to sit. There is NO ATMOSPHERE, like a fine dining restaurant. It is on the edge of a sketchy neighborhood. Make a reservation if you go.

Corner Kitchen is a good local option for lunch. Chef Scully is definitely worth checking out. Plus it is in a cool historic house in Biltmore Village.

Table has good local food. They always shop the local tailgate markets,and change their menus every several days. Always fresh and local. It has an urban type feel. Chef Mathew is one of the best Chefs in town.

Moose Cafe is a chain with lots of Sysco type food off of the truck.

Just saying...

I would 2nd The Red Stagg Grille in the Bohemian Hotel. Great chophouse with a nice romantic atmosphere in a quirky pseudo-hunting lodge way.

Also, The Sunset terrace and Horizons at the Grove Park Inn. Check them out on GPI's website. But absolutely make reservations way ahead of time.

The Market Place on wall Street downtown is semi-formal in a 'fancy menu' kinda way. Very fresh and organic fare.

Honestly, there really isn't a white linen/fine dining experience in Asheville anymore. Thanks to the economy and Asheville's Casual lifestyle.

Agree with GPIFan, make reservations for GPI. They do a seafood buffet on Friday nights, and a prime rib buffet on Saturday nights that are superb and quite a deal, considering.

For lunch, some of our favorites spots include local beer- Asheville Pizza & Brewing, Jack of the Wood, and Barley's Taproom all downtown. Any of the restaurants at Biltmore are yum.

If a BIG breakfast is your thing, happened on Cornerstone Restaurant recently and have made a habit of it now, on Tunnel Rd.

Enjoy!!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions and will check into them. The Red Stagg Grille sounds interesting and has opened since our last visit.
