Much of modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, in the same way that computers are slightly modified typewriters and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon for modern southern fare at Roux, located in the Hilton Asheville in the heart of Biltmore Park Town Square. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of dinner fare and drinks. Dinner is served 5 p.m.–10 p.m. daily.
- For $7, you get $15 worth of lunch or brunch fare. Brunch is served 11 a.m.–2 p.m. on weekends, and lunch is served 11 a.m.–2 p.m. daily.
Roux applies a modern rotation to southern comfort fare, taking down-home staples and turning them into a complex culinary experience. Executive chef Randy Dunn centers the menu around small plates constructed from and flavored with local ingredients. The bistro meatloaf simultaneously honors and defies its namesake's history by bathing itself in red-onion marmalade and white cheddar ($15.95), and the ravioli convenes an unlikely caucus of blue cheese, organic spinach, artichokes, and roasted tomatoes ($15.95).
Lunchtime plates convey savory messages from the pressed chicken and brie sandwich, which crushes a stack of chicken, brie, spinach, and raspberry sauce on sourdough ($8.50). The grilled cheese deluxe, composed of white cheddar, gorgonzola, and granny-smith apples, joins forces with soup to satisfy noontime noshers ($5.95, $7.95 with bacon). Diners who crave duality but shun the intricacies of interpretive fly-fishing can dig into the brunch buffet, which features made-to-order interstitial standards such as omelets, waffles, pancakes, and french toast ($12.95 per person). Within its elegantly modern confines, Roux also maintains a full-service bar and voluminous wine list.
