“elegance of a sail, economy of a cinder block”

The Admiral embarked not with a set course, but steered more in a general direction. We had little doubt that we could cultivate a successful dive bar, but we aspired to create an unexpected restaurant that thrived on its talent and creativity. With the procurement of a modest cinderblock building on the wage earning side of town we succeeded in our goal - to serve delicious food without having to hold on to convention, all in an atmosphere that lacks the restraints of standard technique. We hope you find our décor timeless, our service gentle, and our cuisine inventive and delicious.

Do not let the appearance of this restaurant fool you! It is very hard to get a reservation at The Admiral. The creativity of the chef is unmatched. He has been been rated #1 by the locals in Asheville!! Recommend you get 2-3 of the small plates.

After hours this place is a party scene. Local bands are brought in, and the place gets down.

The Admiral was a pioneer in the Asheville scene when it opened in 2007, precipitating the West Asheville neighborhood's transition from working-class backwater to hipster hamlet. And despite founding chef Elliott Moss's departure, a table here is still one of the hardest reservations in town. That's because the kitchen pumps out innovative courses that might include tempura-fried quail eggs with charred scallions and stinging nettle powder, and Hickory Nut Gap Farm beef tartare with cheddar, pressed apples and Sriracha aioli. True, the single-story cinder-block building isn't much to look at, and the dank interior may conjure memories of family suppers at the Western Steer, but that's all part of the charm—inventive, sophisticated food in a familiar setting.
