    Biltmore Estate STABLES RESTAURANT for a Tasty Meal in a Unique Setting

    Ginny is awed by the magnificent Biltmore House. The Stables is to the far right where she plans to eat a delicious lunch.

    As the name suggests, the STABLES RESTAURANT adjoining the Biltmore House, was the former stables for the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC.  And not just any stables!  This equestrian mansion for horses is a wonder to behold!  Along with this fabulous restaurant, there are a variety of wonderful gift shops and specialty stores housed here as well.  In the entry courtyard you’ll find a Bakery Shop with yummy treats and an Ice Cream Shop perfect for those warm sunny days.  There’s plenty of seating outside in the courtyard fresh air and an undercover area in case it rains.  This is an experience recommended to all our vacation rental home guests staying at our cabins, chalets, cottages & homes at www.AshevilleVacationHomes.com

    Retaining the original stables architecture, you’ll find the STABLES RESTAURANT dining tables privately situated inside the former horse stalls….mind you, these are not just ordinary horse stalls but elegant wrought iron and wooden rooms!  The center of the restaurant is also set with dining tables.  The upstairs of the stables (I assume this spectacular space was used as a massive hayloft) has a second kitchen and a huge dining area.  The Biltmore Estate has created a wonderful capacity to feed and delight its thousands of daily visitors.

    But back to our delightful luncheon at the STABLES RESTAURANT where Robert and I (and Ginny) shared one of the most deliciously seasoned soups we’ve tasted!  It was their soup of the day: Cream of Zucchini and Yellow Squash and served with warm corn bread.  Our sandwiches and sides were equally delicious and the proportions were huge!  Mine was their “Grilled Chicken Panini special: Marinated, grilled chicken breast, mozzarella cheese, Arugula & spicy roasted tomato mayonnaise on toasted ciabatta bread.”  Since their servings are overly generous, next time we plan to share a soup and a sandwich so we’ll have room to sample their wonderful desserts!  They have a wide variety of offerings sure to delight your tummy!  It’s all good! 

    There may be a wait, so go there first to be on their waiting list, then wander down the long hallway to explore the delightful shops.  Your personal pager will buzz, vibrate and light when your table is ready. Enjoy!!!

    Ginny is impressed with the massive "hayloft" above the downstairs restaurant. During busy days, the upstairs Stables Restaurant with a separate kitchen is ready to serve!
