At the 1889 WhiteGate Inn, many of our guests are repeat visitors of Asheville and are always looking to explore outside of the downtown area to find a great restaurant. More often than not, we send guests to West Asheville. Coincidentally, the New York Times did an online feature on West Asheville. Below are four of our new favorite spots:
Biscuit Head is a great brunch/lunch spot on Haywood Road. Serving large, fluffy open face biscuits topped with everything from maple-sirracha sausage to fried catfish, this is a can’t miss casual eatery. Don’t forget to check out their self serve jam bar!
New owners of the abandoned Isis movie theater revamped the building by adding a full bar, restaurant, upstairs listening room, and four hundred capacity music hall. Whether you’re catching a great band or just stopping by for a cocktail, it’s a must-do on the west side.
Once housed downtown in The Lobster Trap, the Oyster House Brewing Company is the place for oysters in town. Not only that, but their Moonstone Stout is made with 10 pounds of mollusks per barrel.
A British gastro-pub with a ‘twist’, The Barley Corn is the newest kid on the block. With a great beer selection (including some hard to find Green Man brews), the menu is a mix of pub food and classic British fare.
West Asheville is only a five minute drive from 1889 WhiteGate Inn. Book your room with us soon and experience all that West Asheville has to offer!
