After a careful search, we’re so pleased to announce our café partner Food Experience, a local, community-minded catering company dedicated to all things Asheville.
About Food Experience
Owners Tony Franco and Matthew Macon started Food Experience in 2007. They met in Asheville, brought together by a mutual love of food, travel, and entertaining. After more than 12 years of serving the area, they’re excited to embark on this new journey with us. “Perspective in food, art, and everything is subjective,” they explained, “Our goal is to curate a menu to meet many different dining perspectives, from a sweet sticky bun and coffee in the morning, to a comforting bowl of soup at lunch, to champagne and charcuterie at sunset.”
About the café
Speaking of, we’re also thrilled to share the name of the Museum’s new rooftop eatery: Perspective Café. In the art world, perspective refers to the representation of objects in three-dimensional space on the two-dimensional surface of a picture. Like that idea, Perspective Café offers multiple angles of sensory experience. It’s a place to take in gorgeous mountain views, rest between exhibitions, and, of course, enjoy delicious food. Open during Museum hours from 11-6pm Wednesday through Sunday (and until 9pm on Thursdays), Museum Members and ticket holders can access the café for brunch, lunch, dinner, or a cocktail.
Food Experience says of this new venture:
After touring the Museum, we were blown away with the artistry of the building and the attention and thought put into every detail to create a world-class experience for Museum guests. We are honored to partner with the Asheville Art Museum and be a part of that vision. The café is a place to gather with friends, enjoy an amazing view, and reflect on the exhibitions in the Museum. We hope to delight the rest of your senses with our locally based, scratch-made menu.
