Creative Cuisine & Craft Cocktails

Since 2012 Chestnut has been making a gustatory impression on Downtown Asheville. Located at 48 Biltmore Avenue Chestnut is in close proximity to some of the city’s favorite venues including the Fine Arts Theater, Diana Wortham TheatreĀ and The Orange Peel, making it an ideal stop before or after a movie or live show.

The Chestnut Story

Consistently creative cuisine — Chestnut offers classics done right with a touch of cutting edge. From house cured meats to perfect mashed potatoes to local steak cooked to a turn to local vegetables fresh from the farmer; it’s not what you do, but how you do it.


Carefully crafted cocktailsĀ — Elixirs, Shrubs, Syrups all made in house, combined with freshly squeezed juices, top drawer liquors and our highly skilled bartenders for a one of a kind beverage experience. The wine list isn’t too bad either…

Eggs Benedict is elevated by the house cured Canadian Bacon and “from scratch” Hollandaise. You can even get oysters, and drinks that will keep your weekend in Downtown rolling…
