Foodies in the Mountain City have been buzzing with anticipation at once again savoring the creative, custom cuisine offered up by more than three dozen restaurants that participate in Asheville Restaurant Week, which happens in mid-January each year.
This nine-day homage to food provides a great opportunity to dine at a favorite restaurant or check out a new one, notes Erin Leonard, vice president of communications for the Asheville Chamber of Commerce. “Locals can show their love for area restaurants by dining at one of their favorites or venturing out to a restaurant they’ve never been to,” she explains. “The range of casual to fine dining means there’s something for everyone, with a handful of participating restaurants offering breakfast, more than half open for lunch, and majority open for dinner.”
Some dining establishments will offer special prices on signature dishes. Others offer seasonal dishes exclusively for the week, while even others offer a prix fixe menu or a special dessert with your meal, Leonard says. Many restaurants get in on the act every year, including Chestnut, Corner Kitchen, Cúrate, and Ruth’s Chris Steak House Biltmore, just to name a few. Diners should check with their chosen restaurants directly to confirm hours, dining options and Restaurant Week menus. Reservations are recommended.
