Asheville Restaurant Week

Asheville Restaurant Week

January 17-26, 2017
What a great time to try some new restaurants or revisit favorites and get the lowest prices of the year, with a prix fix menu at $15-$35/person. With dozens of choices, there's something for all appetites! And Asheville has touted by many as one of the top ten food and wine destinations in the United States. It's presented by the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce.

During this week, participating restaurants will offer these options at a great price (taxes and gratuity not included):

  • Lunch: $15 two-course meal for one person.
  • Dinner: $35 three-course meal for one person.
  • Dinner: $30 two-course meal for two

They will also offer their full menu at regular prices. If the restaurant takes reservations, they are strongly recommended.
