Nestled in the River Arts District, the eco-minded Junction debuts a delectable [menu](http://thejunctionasheville.com/?page_id=82) each season assembled from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. A wood pallet wall overlooks intimate tables wordlessly bearing the weight of dinner salads such as the roasted corn and blackberry ($7) and entrees such as the sweet tea-brined Ashley Farms fried chicken ($10) bettered by southern sides including a basket of fried okra with chive aioli ($6). A soup and salad combo ($8.50) affords lunchers the opportunity to dribble smoked heirloom tomato soup with roasted garlic down their chins and into a fried-green-tomato salad with avocado, roasted corn, peas, and smoked bacon. Bright red umbrellas shade patrons on the outdoor deck and miniaturized versions hang above each shiny metal table inside The Junction’s dining room. A curving bar snakes along the space, harboring friendly locals seeking respite and 16th century metallurgists marveling at tinfoil.
