BERADU - Black Mountain
This market-and-restaurant hybrid highlights locally-made, grown, and sourced products like regional wild game and local fish, grains, beans, fresh pasta, and more. With an emphasis on showcasing the environmental—and personal—benefits of sustainable meat and other regional foods, BERADU’s menu includes tasty tidbits like boiled peanut hummus, wild boar ragu with fresh pappardelle pasta, charred beet and leek Wellington, as well as a rotational, pan-seared catch of the day. 2 E Market St., Ste. A & B; (828) 357-5500; beradublkmtn.com

TRVE Brewing - Asheville 
Coming all the way from Denver, CO, TRVE Brewing has a new taproom in the River Arts District. Branded as a “heavy metal brewery,” TRVE has an ever-changing draft list of lagers, ales, IPAs and sours, and more. Although many of its creations will mirror the beverages offered at their West Coast brewery, TRVE’s Asheville location will use local ingredients to create one-of-a-kind ales specific to WNC. Make sure to grab a pint (or two) of their inaugural collaborative lager between the space’s former owner, Eurisko Beer Company, and TRVE. 255 Short Coxe Ave.; trvebrewing.com

The Market by Sage & Spice - Asheville 
At the Market, you’ll find gourmet foods and café selections available to-go. Ready-made, reheatable healthy meals are available for purchase, as well as fresh sammies, salads, breakfast burritos, coffee and tea, and smoothies. Best sellers include the matcha latte (a mixture of finely-ground green tea leaves and steamed milk), the power berry smoothie that features almond butter and coconut yogurt, and a pressed Cuban sandwich. At the market, check out a variety of local goods such as darë vegan cheese and Willow Hill soaps. 1056 Patton Ave.; (828) 702-9418; sageandspicemarket.com

The Ice House - Black Mountain
Fans of Foothills Grange and 107 Market and Deli will be excited to learn that owner Casey McKissick has a new project in his pocket—The Ice House. McKissick, who also owns Foothills Local Meats, says, “We’re watching our home grow and change, and we want to contribute in ways that only a local family can.” Serving up local meats from their butcher shop, as well as seasonal fare and upscale cocktails, The Ice House is poised to be the Asheville suburb’s newest go-to for a night out with loved ones when it opens in April. 128 Broadway St.; foothillslocalmeats.com

Canteen at Rhode’s Motor Lodge - Boone
Anyone passing by Boone’s newly-renovated boutique hotel can stop in to try the homestyle Appalachian fare offered up at the inn’s lobby bar and restaurant, Canteen. Menu highlights include slow-cooked wagyu beef brisket, lollipop chicken drumsticks, and rainbow trout cakes. Just grabbing a drink? Try the Riff Raff, a tasteful combination of North Carolina gin, Campari, and orange. 1377 Blowing Rock Rd.; (828) 865-1110; rhodesmotorlodge.com
