Located on a historical Asheville property, built in the early 1900s 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 stories. 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.
Dining at Forestry Camp
Starting on Tuesday November 10, 2020 Forestry Camp Bar & Restaurant will offer guests three different dining experiences to meet your comfort levels and dining needs.
Indoor dining offers a tasting experience curated by Executive Chef JT DeBrie. The tasting will walk you through a selected menu of 5 courses highlighting farm-fresh, local, seasonal ingredients inspired by French and Spanish traditions. This is the only menu option for dining inside and is $50 per person (tax and gratuity not included in this price). Reservations are required. Wine pairings are also available as well as a full beverage list of wine, beer, cocktails, espresso, and non-alcoholic options.
Rooftop Outdoor Dining
Our rooftop offers an outdoor experience protected from the elements with table service. The rooftop is available via reservation BY PHONE ONLY. We will also accept walk-ups for this section. The ‘A la Carte’ menu reflects our commitment to our whole animal program, supporting local farms and highlighting the bounty of Appalachia.
For a more laid-back experience, we offer our picnic area which is protected from the elements. This area is not available via reservation and is available on a first come first serve basis. Once you arrive, you will order your food and drinks at the bar.
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.
