    If you’re in the mood for fast food but would like to eat in a beautiful building in an extraordinary setting, you’ve got to experience the McDonalds (#1661) in Biltmore Village just outside the entrance to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC.  They even were featured on the Travel Channel a few years back.  Who would expect to find a player grand piano, elegant fireplaces, marble tile, vaulted exquisite ceilings, modern art or a waterfall in a McDonalds???  Even the golden arches are of real gold leaf! Regardless of what the service and food may or may not be, it’s worth the visit to experience such an elegant and unique McDonalds!  Coming soon will be their McCafe.

    Ginny is ready to enjoy a bit of history and delicious food!

    Adjacent to the entrance of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC is the charming Biltmore Village with original 1890’s cottages now home to unique galleries, shops, boutiques and delicious places to eat.  One of my favorite restaurants is the delightful Corner Kitchen where the home is rich in history and the food is scrumptious!  Delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners are served here, so come most any time to enjoy their tasty menu!   The breakfast and lunches have a small but varied selection at average prices, and their dinner menu is quite wonderful and a bit more pricey.

     

     As the name suggests, the Corner Kitchen is on the corner of 3 Boston Way and All Soul’s Cresent.  There are a variety of rooms in this two story century old home to enjoy your meals: the romantic “Parlor” with its welcoming fireplace, the “Porch” which is an all glass sunroom where you have a street view, or follow the staircase to several upstairs rooms.  The day we most recently dined there, we were seated on the Porch.  For lunch I ordered their Roasted Portobello Sandwich Sliced which was served open faced with warm Goat Cheese, Field Greens, Fresh Basil leaves and Pickled onions on a Griddled Ciabatta.  This is the best Portobello sandwich I’ve ever had!  Instead of a big hunk of mushroom, there were tiny slivers piled high of wonderfully seasoned portabellos.  Yummmm! 

    You will find the Corner Kitchen at 3 Boston Way in Biltmore Village, Asheville NC 28803. Phone:  828-274-2439  See their website for menus and more details:  www.thecornerkitchen.com
