Corner Kitchen is an Asheville staple. Not surprising since they have an amazingly delicious retail restaurant. As an event caterer, they specialize in upscale southern comfort food. They have full service offerings and a knowledgeable and available staff. Their food is delicious and working with them is a dream. They also run an equally amazing downtown spot, Chestnut.
Saffron Fine Foods knows the business of food. Their retail restaurant, Homegrown makes the best fried chicken this side of the Mississippi, and upscale is no problem for them either. Locally owned and operated, this group also certifies a living wage for their employees. Also an eco-friendly establishment, it is no wonder they are an AVL favorite.
