Bargello® is a 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 the 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.
Bargello’s menu and atmosphere were designed with the desire to create a sense of community around the table. Locally sourced and harvested ingredients from Appalachian and regional farms grace Bargello’s menus. Whether for a breakfast meeting or dinner with friends, Bargello’s atmosphere and culinary offerings are certain to leave a memorable impression.
