For those that love the outdoor scenic attractions we bring you the inside scoop on our latest visit to the mountains of Asheville, NC.

The Unforgettable Blue Ridge Dinner

Seated at the table by the window that overlooks the golf course with the sunset over the mountains in the distance was the most unforgettable dining experience with live, soothing, music from a local pianist added the right touch. The wall of glass windows that surround the dining room provides a Great view all around of the mountain. You can’t lose whether you choose “The Prime Rib Buffet” or the “Seafood Buffet” from the Blue Ridge Restaurant at the Grove Park Inn (Asheville, NC). Dinner at the Blue Ridge Restaurant is an elegant affair yet scrumptious enough and affordable for families and professional travelers . If you stay as a guest at the Grove Park Inn, you can get a dinner for 2 free on special holiday occasion. You can dress casual or formal it’s a really relaxed atmosphere with an awesome, breathtaking view of the mountains of Asheville.

The Prime Rib dinner included smoked and non-smoked prime rib, chicken, fish, rice, steamed vegetables, a variety of seafood salads and vegetable salads, soup, fruit and an assortment of breads, cakes, pies, ice cream, syrup and toppings. There was more than 40 items so beautifully displayed on glass tables with an ice sculpture and a tall flower arrangement as a colorful centerpiece. The food was BAM delicious!!
The Breakfast Buffet was also a grand affair with the sunrise over the mountain as the backdrop with two chiefs cooking American style omelets anyway you want it. The omelet line was at least 10 people deep with people waiting patiently to have their omelet made to order. From southern style scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, grits, pan-fried potatoes and oatmeal with fresh cinnamon and so much more!!
During the Easter holiday, I took the Kitchen tour to go behind the scenes to see where the food for the Blue Ridge Restaurant and other restaurants are prepared. The “Kitchen tour” is where I witnessed up-close and in-person how the staff and Executive Chef Dan and Pastry Chef Lisa prepare meals to serve thousands that dawn the doors of the Blue Ridge Restaurant. The walking Kitchen tour will take you thru the under-ground tunnel to pass thru 5 different kitchens to meet the staff, ask questions and sample some tasty samples from each kitchen prepared by the friendly, talented staff.

Delicious Artwork

My favorite kitchen stop was an experience in the Pastry kitchen where we met one of the staff members that turns food into artwork for banquets. Artwork you can eat..yum!! For more than 10 years, this food artist has been creating unique designs using melons and all types of fruits that are amazing to see!! It took more than 5 hours to complete these 3 beautys shown above.
