If you’re roaming around downtown Asheville and want a local farm-to-table experience with fresh ingredients, check out Posana. They have a cozy indoor space or if you’d rather experience all of the action downtown has to offer, choose a table on the outside patio.
I think kale gets a bad rap. I used to not like it either. However, now I. am. addicted. It’s all about how it’s prepared and what goes in it. Some places know how to do it, others do not. Posana in downtown Asheville knows.
This was my first time trying their kale salad and it will definitely be one of my go-to places to get one from now on. Their chiffonade technique is on point (the trick to kale is to cut it very thinly) and the combination of toasted pumpkin seeds, currants, Three Graces Dairy manchego style cheese, lemon, and Theros olive oil was divine.
We only stopped by for an appetizer and a drink, but I can’t wait to go back and try everything on the menu. It all sounded so good.
Some things to consider:
Posana, surprisingly for its location, is never too crowded. We’ve never had to wait for a table, but for peak times/nights/large groups you can call ahead to make a reservation or make a reservation on their website.
It can get loud on the patio due to all the foot traffic, so keep that in mind.
Its quality location and local food bump up food/drink prices a bit
They have a great selection of mocktails for non-drinkers (you can also turn the mocktails into cocktails…just sayin’)
