Hello everyone, today I want to invite you to learn a little more about what MDTT is doing in our community.

Asheville for me is home, and there is no denying the city is changing and growing fast, this brings new challenges in many ways, and to see organizations like this one investing in our youth is something that brings me hope.

NY Cuisine in Downtown Asheville? Zella’s Deli!

NY Cuisine in Downtown Asheville? Zella’s Deli!

👈🏼Blog Sponsored by Mosaic Realty

Zella’s Deli is a great option for those visiting, or living in the South, and  crave NY style cuisine. Asheville is  known as a place with great restaurants, and for the longest time has needed a deli.

Well, not long ago Zella’s Deli opened in downtown Asheville. This place has a variety of NY classics, today I had the joy of trying 3 different sandwiches

I had the Meatball sub, and it is AWESOME! 

Bread was soft, the meatballs were delicious and what I think made it great was the SAUCE! I ate it in record time.

I also had the Italian and the Reuben,

My second favorite has to be the Reuben mmmm, BOMBASTIC. 

For this one they have two options?! How? Why? Well, if you have a big appetite and you want to feel like you are in the big city, you can have a NY STYLE UPGRADE ! This means you can have it with an extra 1/2 LB MEAT 🤩

The Italian was also tasty and the one that took me the longest to eat because its cold, and by now I had already eaten two sandwiches,  that is going to slow down anyone 😉 

Zella’s Deli is located in downtown Asheville at 48 College St.

I have visited Stoney Knob Cafe countless times during the last 20 years, and I never had a meal I didn’t enjoy.

This place is AWESOME, and is NOT A TOURIST TRAP,  the ambiance is cool, sophisticated and the food is world class. Yes, this is the reason why after so many years and even while the pandemic locals made sure it stayed in business. Yes, Asheville locals  love it, those visiting who are lucky enough to discover this gem are in for a great experience.

Away from the madness of downtown Asheville, and yet 15 minutes away from it, Stoney Knob Cafe stands strong because the food and service are extraordinary.

As soon as you arrive at the parking lot, you are going to notice the eclectic ambiance  right away.

What?! How could that be, if you are in the parking lot? Well, pay attention, because there are a few clues on the building that you can take as a sign of what is about to come the second you step in. 

 The sign reads Stoney Knob Cafe,  “Cuisine from near and far” and yes it is.

The menu is world class, like a James Bond movie.

All right, I can keep going about the ambiance, but honestly the decor is just a dramatic touch  for awesome food.

This time I had a delicious grilled octopus for appetizer, LOVED IT. A BOMBASTIC OYSTER CAESAR SALAD  that I’m including on my website as a MUST HAVE MEAL in Asheville NO KIDDING. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Short ribs with scallops YES! The meat was super tender,  and the scallops mmmmm. I also had the LAMB TACOS, and holy mother of god!! I love tacos, I’m Mexican, and this Greek BADASS CHEF showed me his take on tacos is da bomb, the tortillas super tasty and very different flavor from traditional Mexican tortilllas and the grilled feta cheese on top the perfect touch, BRAVO MAESTRO 👏 👏 👏 .

While I was eating these tacos,  a lady came and told me, I have to mention their Jamaican Ravioli  for lunch and their mushroom ravioli for dinner, and yes I’m going to come back to try those for sure.

Folks, this place has been around for almost 60 years, because DA PEOPLE LOVE IT.

THIS PLACE IS BUILT ON THE LOVE, CREATIVITY AND PASSION OF A GREEK IMMIGRANT NAMED GUS DERMAS,  and today his son is without a doubt one of the BEST CHEFS IN ASHEVILLE, and for all these reasons CHEF YOTTY DERMAS IS A CHEF TO FOLLOW IN ASHEVILLE.

*Thank you John and Yotty Dermas for your hospitality and for elevating the culinary scene in our city.

Thank you Parsons Law for sponsoring our platform and for supporting diversity in local media.
