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. The new 1,700 square foot space is equipped for hot food production, an aspect that will allow the restaurant to expand their former raw bar and cold menu.  The Wine and Oyster will now serve a full lunch and dinner menu peppered with fresh seafood dishes, homemade pastas, paninis and po’ boys.  “Everything from our oysters to …
