Welcome to a food and drink lover's dream! If you are a foodie that loves culinary adventures with plenty of local flavors, the Asheville and surrounding mountain area is the place for you. We were even voted a Top 10 Foodie City in the USA, based on the high frequency that locals eat out, the amount spent on food, access to healthy food options, the number of farmers markets and the large number of restaurants and James Beard Foundation Award winners. Here are our top things to taste in "Foodtopia."
UPDATE: While most restaurants have outdoor dining options available to maintain a safe distance, be prepared for a long wait. Or call in your order to go! For a list of holiday hours from Thanksgiving to New Years', see AIR (Asheville Independent Restaurants) Holiday Hours.
