AIR is Essential

AIR is an association of local, independent restaurants dedicated to keeping Asheville’s food scene eclectic, authentic, interesting, fresh and flavorful. In our vibrant mountain city you will find the flavors of Spain and the Caribbean, India and France around the corner from Southern Appalachian Mountain favorites.

Our 13-member volunteer board reflects this diversity, with representatives coming from owners of large and small restaurants, as well as fine and casual dining. It’s just one more reason why AIR truly is food in Asheville.
