Dining in Black Mountain

Happy New Year from the “Front Porch of Western North Carolina”! While many of us are setting new year’s resolutions, we shouldn’t deprive ourselves of great food! After all, we still have to eat, so eat something delicious. Our quaint hometown of Black Mountain is unmatched when it comes to the outstanding offerings for such a small town. There are nearly three dozen independently owned restaurants in our community featuring nearly every food style and culture.

In town you’ll find upscale places like The Artisan Gourmet featuring crepes and a grocery featuring locally raised beef, sausages, cheeses and a wide selection of wines. Think of it being a miniature “Dean & Deluca”. Or perhaps you want more down home fare. If so, consider Louise’s Kitchen or Blue Ridge Biscuit Company for a hearty yet healthy home style breakfast. Nothing says “western Carolina” more than a meal of southern comfort food at the Red Rocker Inn. Or perhaps your taste buds are taking you to the Far East. Then consider Tai Basal Indian cuisine or the very authentic Sake-Sushi for Japanese. Something sophisticated? Try the Black Mountain Bistro, The Red Radish or perhaps an artisan pizza at Fresh Wood Fired Pizza. There are simply too many to name in this post, but rest assured; you don’t have to travel to Asheville for a great meal. Just fifteen minutes from the gate of Creston, and you’ll find yourself in this culinary hot spot known as Black Mountain. So bon appetit!
