The North Carolina Mountains Restaurants

The Admiral

Updated 11/07/2012

Fodor's Review

Don't be put off by the dowdy cinderblock exterior and the low-rent West Asheville neighborhood. Inside this dimly lit, narrow little restaurant with a divey bar atmosphere, you'll find some of the most creative cooking in town. The dinner menu changes daily and features both small and large plates. Expect dishes such as seared scallops with smoked corn bisque or duck breast with poblano-bacon consommé and pea tendrils. Start with The Admiral's refreshing signature drink, the Cucumbersome, gin infused with fresh cucumber.
