Chestnut

About

Chestnut is a restaurant located in Asheville, North Carolina at 48 Biltmore Avenue. They are open every day of the week.

Kevin Westmoreland & Joe Scully opened Chestnut restaurant in downtown Asheville, NC nine years after opening their first restaurant, Corner Kitchen. Growing up in a family of seven children, Brian was always intrigued by his mom’s cooking. Any time she was asked “What’s for dinner”, she would reply, “Food” with a serious look on her face. It was never easy feeding such a big family, but she always managed to put something on the plate even when her “plate” was so full. Brian gets nostalgic, to this day, picking beans, peeling potatoes, cleaning fish… and reminiscing about her famous bacon-fried chicken. Starting out under a talented chef at a Southern/French bistro. Brian worked up the ranks of the kitchen, realizing that this felt like home. One night the Chef told Brian that Culinary School was the next step.
