Bargello® is an independently owned and operated Mediterranean-inspired restaurant occupying the Northeast corner of the ground floor of Kimpton Hotel Arras in historic downtown Asheville. The name Bargello was inspired by the Florentine needlepoint stitch used on tapestries. Peter and Martha chose this name for their restaurant because of their love of creating spaces that weave together the community as well as how the word reflects the cuisine’s regional influence.
As part of Mandara Hospitality, we aim to create a sense of community around the table. Our ingredients are locally sourced and harvested from Appalachian and regional farms, with a deep commitment to Western North Carolina.
