Set in a bowl surrounded by the beauty of the Great Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville has a robust farm-to-table culinary culture. There are tailgate markets all over the city and restaurants serve delicious combinations of fresh ingredients. Imagine a salad topped with roasted peaches served over house-pickled beets or lobster nachos in which the rich flavor of the guacamole and slaw rival the lobster on the palate.

If you’re in the habit of ordering a salad without croutons to keep gluten-free ordering simple, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover that your waiter will usually offer you a side of bread. Don’t worry. He didn’t misunderstand. Gluten-free is mainstream here. Often from a local bakery, your bread may be slices of toasted loaf bread or it could be focaccia-style rosemary slices.
