Husband and Wife team Jacob and Alicia Sessoms have returned to the area from New York City where they trained in the restaurant business. They have created a truly "market-driven seasonal New American" restaurant here in downtown Asheville. With the help of several local artisans, they have created a rustically modern and hip atmosphere in their open, store-front space with bold colors and striking wood and steel contrasts.
Jacob has been classically trained in French Pastry and Culinary Arts. He is joined in the open kitchen by another classically trained chef, Matthew Dawes. Alicia will be managing the formal yet comfortable service of the dining room, bar and wine list.
Sit down at the mahogany and maple bar or one of the hand-made maple tabletops and watch Jacob and Matt's sagacious yet simple food fill the dining room.
With a daily written moderately priced dinner menu and a $26 to $300 "Old-World" heavy wine list all the bases are covered for fine dining style cuisine.
