In downtown Asheville, a hip brunch spot with nice casual seating for families or couples, very good foods: well prepared, country-fied with satisfying flavors.

Service was wonderful, and that is the best I can offer. The Chestnut salad was weeds on a balsamic drizzle, pork belly entree was RAW pig fat(sent back). Steak was way too salty. Macadamia crusted Mahi was bland. Never again!

From the chef/owner. I emailed him for you. I should get a tip! We will have a special menu, but alas, we cannot have music in our space... The menu hasn't been decided yet,
Do you publish a menu?

Chestnut is an American restaurant. We are in a 1920s era building in downtown Asheville, right across for the Aloft hotel and the double decker coffee bus. Parking is plentiful (and cheap) at the public deck under the Aloft Hotel.
