Native was created by two North Carolina couples who recognized the need for sustainable food practices, and a responsibility that we all share when it comes to our soil, water, and air. Our owners wanted to open a restaurant that would be a staple in the Asheville community and provide steady, healthy, local food to residents.
We strongly believe in supporting farming techniques, which are sustainable, organic and regenerative. These local farms restore the fabric of rural communities, decrease water and air pollution, preserve and build topsoil and produce wonderful crops. The foods they deliver to our tables are high in nutritive value and are without chemical residue. Our support to these dedicated farmers yields healthier ingredients that strengthen our sense of local community, builds our local economy and, most importantly, it’s a vital step toward protecting these resources for future generations. It’s crucial to our mission that we not only provide local food, but that we strive to support our local breweries, artists, musicians, and community.
Our owners opened Native Kitchen after they witnessed other companies fail to succeed in the same physical location. Off the beaten path just 10 miles outside of downtown Asheville, Native Kitchen & Social Pub is the next unexpected destination spot. Check out live music from local musicians in our cozy and eclectic pub, enjoy our patio area year-round, and hang out in our backyard where the kids and the family dog can run and play. Native’s inviting atmosphere is perfect for relaxing and quenching your thirst with one of our 12 local beers on tap. Also featured is our exceptional wine list and handcrafted Saki cocktails. Native Kitchen keeps things fresh by delivering an exquisite local and seasonal menu year round. So whether its for the food, drinks, or live music, make Native Kitchen & Social Pub your next destination spot!
