AVL Food Series debuts, herbal bar opens, new downtown eatery coming

ASHEVILLE – A new, yearlong dining and food festival series kicks off; an elevated beverage bar to open in a nearby mountain town; a new restaurant tenant sets its sights on a recently vacated downtown venue.

AVL Food Series

This week, Shay & Company and Devil’s Foot Beverage Company will launch the AVL Food Series.

Ben Colvin, co-owner of Devil’s Foot, said the farm-to-can beverage company partnered with the event planning company on the multi-event program to bring local culinary artists to the forefront and connect the community over shared meals.

“There has to be a better way to showcase what’s awesome here to put the chef forward and to curate a better experience,” Colvin said.

AVL Food Series will include several events including Tacotopia Food Fest on July 27, 2024.

Chefs will work with farmers, growers and producers in the chef-curated experiences, including seated dinners and all-ages indoor/outdoor food festivals. Ticket costs vary.

“There’s people and culture behind the food. It’s not just the plate,” Colvin said.

Events will be hosted at Devil Foot’s warehouse bar, The Mule, at 131 Sweeten Creek Road, suite 10., throughout the year.
