Each has become an Asheville icon in it’s own right. Corner Kitchen is set in a beautiful little house dating from 1895 in Biltmore Village. Chestnut is in more of an “urban” setting at 48 Biltmore Avenue. Corner Kitchen Catering has a facility that produces restaurant-quality food for any and all types of events from box lunches to elaborate weddings. For more information, visit
