During these unprecedented times, Forestry Camp Bar and Restaurant aims to provide the same level of service, knowledge and quality prior to closing for on site dining mid- March. Starting on June 2, 2020 we invite you to dine at Forestry Camp Bar and Restaurant again and enjoy the comfort of an open air roof top deck as well as a casual, outdoor picnic area. Guests will be invited to order inside at the bar while perusing our rustic market complete with wine and Camp Grocery products made in house. Forestry Camp Bar and Restaurant continues to offer an extensive, curated beverage list featuring beer, wine, house made cocktails and espresso drinks. Along side the experience of dining at the restaurant’s outdoor areas, they continue to offer beer, wine, espresso drinks and our full menu for pick up/to-go.
Forestry Camp Bar and Restaurant remains committed to their whole animal program inspired by the Spanish and French traditions of using local, in season products. For the restaurant, that translates to highlighting the bounty of Appalachia through their in- house butchery and deep rooted relationships with local farmers.
Located on a historical Asheville property, built in the early 1900’s by the US Government as part of the Civilian Conservation Corps program, Forestry Camp Bar and Restaurant is inspired by preservation and storytelling. The history and preservation of this property as an important piece of the rich contributions that the Blue Ridge Parkway had to Western North Carolina connects us deeply to the preservation of our ingredients. The ingredients, much like the influential history of the property have a story. They have an origin and a meaning. Forestry Camp Bar and Restaurant honors the ingredients through our connections to the farmers and by telling their story. From there, we utilize different culinary preparations inspired by French and Spanish traditions to preserve and elevate the flavors inherent in each ingredient.
When you step onto the historical property and become immersed in your dining experience, you will be transported to a time where simplicity was honored, communities were connected and local farms were our life source.
