These days, it’s not hard to miss the adulation Asheville restaurants. It seems that everywhere one turns, there is a great new article about our town’s dynamic and creative chefs.
The judges for the James Beard Foundation have noticed too. What an incredible bonanza it is for Asheville to have not one, not two but three nominees in the James Beard Awards Best Chef in the Southeast category.
Best Chef: Southeast Semifinalists
- Katie Button, Cúrate, Asheville, NC
- John Fleer, Rhubarb, Asheville, NC
- Meherwan Irani, Chai Pani, Asheville, NC
We wish each chef and each restaurant in Asheville could be recognized with an award. And in truth, each does have the opportunity to be recognized–when we dine with them and recommend our friends do the same.
