This review is for S&W Artisanal Eatery which is the latest establishment to occupy the fantastic deco era S&W Cafeteria building. We had a sandwich and pasta salad side. Both were excellent! And love the building!

We changed our plans for mother's day when we discovered this charming, historic, delicious, authentic place in downtown Asheville. Mom felt treated special as we rode the elevator to the dining mezzanine overlooking the beautiful main room restored to its 1920's art deco glory. The...More

The S&W building in Asheville is a gem. I'm glad that a business has finally taken it over. The Mez is billed as a fine Greek restaurant. It offers a lot of small plates, which they encourage you to share. The menu is heavy on...More

Greek food! I have been waiting for us to have a real Greek restaurant in town. This is it. I have been there twice, once for spanakopita and once for mousaka. YUM. Reasonable prices downstairs at lunch and everything very tasty and very Greek.
