FOOD+DRINK: Isis / by Carrie Turner

“Food is music to the body, music is food to the heart.”
— Gregory David Roberts

I've been living in West Asheville since I moved to Asheville 10 years ago, and over that time I've seen new restaurants come in, building undergo transformations, and the character of our little corner of the world evolve. When the old theater space on Haywood Road was being renovated, I stuck my head in one day to meet the owner and hear about plans for a new restaurant and performance space geared towards our burgeoning music community. Fast forward a few years later and I had the privilege of photographing the food and performance space housed at the Isis Restaurant and Music Hall, where I've had many a delicious meal and equally delicious listening experience. If you haven't been there yet, you are really missing out. Make plans to visit soon and, whatever you do, don't skip dessert!
