Destination Tryon Guide - 65
FLAVORS OF FOODTOPIA
When mealtime comes, a stroll through Asheville reveals
a myriad of restaurants where award-winning chefs mix
modern techniques with cherished traditions to create
phenomenal dining experiences around every corner. Local
ingredients sing at Appalachian farm-to-table restaurants.
Barbecue joints are everywhere, each with its own flair.
International flavors abound, ranging from Indian street
food to Spanish tapas with a local twist.
Asheville is also a special place for craft-brew enthusiasts.
The secret ingredient is the mountain-filtered water, making
for some of the most sought-after ales, stouts, and sour
beers in the Southeast. With more breweries per capita
than any other city (41 and counting!), you'll have plenty of
options to consider. Stroll through the South Slope district
to sample from nine neighboring breweries.
Biltmore will host an exhibit by famed American glass artist
Dale Chihuly, and Western N.C.'s own glass art community
welcomes visitors for Summer of Glass.
Book a uniquely Asheville tour to learn more about the area's
history, food, art, beer or even cheese. And explore the city's
neighborhoods and nearby towns-from the creative River
Arts District to trendy West Asheville, and from historic
Biltmore Village to cozy Black Mountain.
