Restaurants and Bars in Downtown Asheville, NC


Asheville Restaurants

Upon visiting downtown Asheville, one quickly notices a theme that runs deep and true in this mountain town. We are a varied area and a varied people. Many different tastes and styles mesh together into what can only be called an eclectic community. No matter what you are hankering for, Asheville will provide and provide just short of a big city on the variety but with unparalleled quality.

Whether you are on North Lexington perusing the funky shops before dining like a Rajah on Mela's traditional Indian Cuisine, or pausing for an exquisite cup of coffee and Hungarian sweets at Old Europe after a walk through the Grove Arcade, downtown Asheville boasts a range of restaurants that is always missing in other places.

Our eateries go well beyond our Southern cooking roots. Best of all, almost all of the many eateries are within walking distance from one another, and all of the other attractions that the heart of Asheville possesses. Many of these magnificent establishments stay open late, provide live music, offer Sunday brunch, and will downright have you back begging for more.

From vegetarian to Spanish tapas, Caribbean to barbeque, and all the other flavors of the rainbow, downtown will not disappoint. Below you will find listed some of downtown’s jewels to be discovered or enjoyed once again.
