our Top 3 Favorite Asheville Restaurants to Celebrate Real Estate Milestones: You’re buying a home in the Asheville area, or you’re a local now selling your home in preparation for new adventures, near or far. There’s nothing quite like the stress of relocating, and chances are you’ve been working overtime.
Though you’re probably making herculean efforts to maintain some normalcy amidst it all, sometimes a break from your routine responsibility can make the difference between feeling frayed nerves or a celebratory sense of accomplishment. Fortunately, as a burgeoning hotspot for culinary consciousness, Asheville can take the cooking off your plate.
While the list of excellent, local eats is lengthy (and continues to grow by the week), we’re highlighting three of our recent favorite restaurants. All three boast fantastic flavor, but each offers a different dining experience suited for a different occasion and desire.
Mamacita’s Taco Temple
132 Charlotte Street, Asheville, NC 28801
Open 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 11 a.m.- 10 p.m. Friday-Saturday; closed Sunday
Just north of downtown, the tantalizing offerings at Mamacita’s Taco Temple will fill you up with fresh, flavorful goodness without taking too much time out of your day or money out of your pocket. Choose between soft blue corn or flour tortillas and an extensive list of fillings –from traditional marinated meats to gluten-free, battered and fried fish to lavish vegetarian selections. Tacos range from $3.50 to $4 each and come with chips and salsa. Watch for daily specials like chicken and cheese blue corn pupusas heaped with house-made guacamole. Need something a little extra? Take the edge off with a selection from their extensive tequila bar! The friendly and efficient staff are quick to serve, however, like many restaurants, the self-seating can be slim during the peak lunch and dinner times. If you’re already feeling anxious, it may be best to avoid the lunch or dinner rush.
697 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806
Open 8 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday & Saturday; 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday
A new addition to the growing list of incredible restaurants on Haywood Road in West Asheville, BimBeriBon is fabulous fun for the adventurous foodie. In addition to serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant offers extensive selections from its take-out food case, bakery, a barista bar and alcoholic beverage bar. Narrowing down the menu to make a choice (and snagging a table) is the hardest part! Dishes are largely internationally inspired with an emphasis on Asian and Middle-Eastern flavors. While BimBeriBon creatively caters to kill-free cuisine, it also offers plenty of options for those who crave meat in their meal. $25 will buy you a filling main course, a fun beverage (like a super-food latte), and a decadent dessert from the bakery. Expect an eccentric dining experience starting with ordering from one of the three available registers. Nevertheless, with such excellent offerings, this is a safe place to step out of your comfort zone.
The Market Place
20 Wall Street, Asheville, NC 28801
5 p.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday; 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
Everything must come to an end –including the chaos of buying or selling your home! Hopefully, you have cause to celebrate and tucked away on Wall Street in the heart of downtown Asheville, The Market Place is a perfect spot to make a toast to your success and exciting new chapter. Intimate and elegant, Chef William Dissen specializes in local, organic, farm-to-table American cuisine with an enticing menu that changes with seasonal availability. The small plates are irresistible, perfectly al dente pasta is made in-house, steaks are impeccably cooked to order, and everything is plated with panache. Start your meal with an inspired cocktail and choose a perfect pairing for your meal from local craft beers or the robust wine list. Come prepared to spend $50 on yourself … you won’t be disappointed.
If the vibrancy of a city can be judged by the strength of its art scene, then Asheville certainly scores high as a bustling regional mecca. From the larger-scale Asheville Art Museum to one-room studios in the renovated warehouses of the River Arts District, artists want to live and create here.
And it seems that where artists are working, residential development follows. We thrive on the energy and creativity of those around us. Development downtown and in the RAD is growing – in fact, the Asheville City Council recently approved a new RAD apartment complex that will include artist studios along with restaurants and public parking. The open studios, neighborhood strolls, and rotating gallery exhibits are a huge draw for those who enjoy a bustling neighborhood.
Art in Asheville – and the entire Western North Carolina region – isn’t only about an oil painting hanging on the wall or a sculpture on a stand. It’s also about folk art. Asheville is home to the Southern Highland Craft Guild, which has four shops and hosts biannual fairs in the U.S. Cellular Center that draw thousands of people. The region was also home to Black Mountain College, which drew some of the 20th Century’s finest visual and performing artists in its 24-year history, and now exists in downtown Asheville as the Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center. A hotel and residential building are currently under construction across from the Asheville Art Museum and within easy walking distance to several of the larger galleries downtown.
The Asheville Art Museum, which is out of its permanent home due to construction, has opened a temporary annex in the South Slope neighborhood. The South Slope is also the home of the Asheville Area Arts Council, a collaborative voice for the arts in Buncombe County. It’s no coincidence that residential interest has increased in the South Slope, where loft apartments are available and more parcels of land are being developed as residential property.
There are many thriving towns and communities close to Asheville with smaller-scale but strong art scenes. There are galleries and studios worth exploring in places such as Black Mountain, Waynesville, and Burnsville, which is close to the world-famous Penland School of Crafts. If you’re seeking out property that puts you close to art and creativity, the blueblaze team’s strong connections to and understanding of Asheville and the Western North Carolina region can get you there.
