This summer, Yelp compiled a list of the top trending destinations for foodies across the United States, and Asheville was ranked #1. This year was the second time Asheville received this honor, for Yelp also ranked it first in 2020.
For this year’s ranking, Yelp based its picks on which cities had the highest restaurant ratings from out-of-towners, and then they looked at what visitors loved on Yelp. In addition, they only chose cities with populations of 250,000 or fewer.
About Asheville, they said, “Blending the flavors of the American South with Appalachian fare, Asheville boasts a unique mountain-to-urban creative food scene.” Their two top restaurant picks in Asheville were Cúrate and Chesnut, commenting that Yelpers particularly loved the lamb skewers and fried eggplant at Cúrate.
Other Yelp restaurant favorites in Asheville include:
- Daddy Mac’s Down Home Dive
- Tupelo Honey
- The Admiral
- Corner Kitchen
- White Duck Taco Shop
- Sunny Point Café
- The Montford Rooftop Bar
If you haven’t tried any of these restaurants, each is worth a visit. You will quickly learn why Asheville considers its food scene a Foodtopia, a place where “every meal is a celebration. A revelation. And a transcendent experience.”
