The Wine & Oyster Opens in Downtown Asheville

A popular neighborhood eatery has set its sights on a new shell in the pearl of the city. The Wine and Oyster reopens Friday, April 19, bringing bold global wines and fresh flavor-packed oysters to Downtown Asheville.   “We are excited and love our new location,” said Steve Klein, owner of The Wine & Oyster.  The restaurant first opened in Biltmore Village as a franchise location of Virgola, a New York-based wine bar in 2017. They shucked the franchise the following year, becoming independently owned and operated as The Wine & Oyster.  Klein said he hopes the move from Biltmore Village to 3 Biltmore Avenue will give the restaurant a fresh footprint in Asheville’s restaurant scene.  “It’s such a fun area and we are looking forward to serving the community and to a bright future as part of the Asheville restaurant community,” Klein said.
