When it comes to the Montford neighborhood that surrounds The Broadway, community is second nature. If you want to experience a blend of Historic Montford, rubbing shoulders (figuratively speaking) with professionals, local politicians, construction workers, students, and the casually hip, look no further than the literal darlings of Montford Ave., All Day Darling.
Hint: It’s about the relationship. Dining at All Day Darling and it’s easy to see the relationships that have formed over time—with small producers and local farms and the enigmatic and fiercely local proprietor, Jacob Sessoms, who seems to sprinkle a magic dust of success on all of his culinary projects from the esteemed Table, The Imperial Life, and most recently All Day Darling. A James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Chef Southeast in 2010, this talented chef has earned the nickname of, “the grandfather of creative cooking” in Asheville.
Everyone has a favorite dish. Ours? It could very well be a three-way tie between the Shakshuka, the Darling Burger, or the Grain Salad. But don’t underestimate the addictive powers of All Day Darling’s bakery selections. The finest croissants in The South will have you lined up each morning for your daily fix.
