Chef’s Salute To Local
From the Appalachian Mountaintops to the Lowcountry, the Chefs at The Restoration are committed to bringing fresh local ingredients from each destination to your table.
By partnering with local farms, our Chefs at The Restoration Hotel Collection are able to incorporate the very best ingredients from the coop, farm, mountaintop, and the sea… and guests are noticing the difference.
Asheville North Carolina’s newest restaurants, The Exchange Restaurant & Bar and The Observatory Bar + Lounge both assemble mountain flavors into each unique dish and craft cocktail. The Exchange, located on Patton Avenue and across from Pritchard Park is breathing a new flavor profile into the downtown Asheville restaurant scene with dishes like their Mushroom Bolognese and Sopresatta & Copp flatbread.
For the perfect viewpoint of the cities, both destination hotels offer rooftop views at The Observatory in Asheville or The Watch in Charleston. These rooftop kitchens and bars offer a refined setting to enjoy sunset views. Sip on craft cocktails like The Bouquet in Asheville featuring hibiscus-infused Absolut and passion fruit with floating mountain wildflowers, or the Strawberry Blonde in Charleston with fresh strawberries from Legare Farms infused Bacardi, Southern Amaro, Velvet Falernum, lime juice and pineapple syrup. Cocktails like these, paired with local culinary classics offer all the modern flavors and reimagined variations you’ve come to expect from The Restoration Hotel Collection culinary experts.
