GLOBALLY INSPIRED CUISINE FROM A SOUTHERN PERSPECTIVE
Ashten's was first opened in 1997 by sisters Ashley and Quinten Van Camp. The original concept was to be comfortable yet elegant, like an old English manor. The crest hanging over the door to the bar, has a Lion and a Unicorn fighting over a crown roast with knives and forks with "not new things but in new ways" written in Latin.
This is what Ashtens is all about. Traditional, but with a twist. We love to take classics and put our own spin on it. We call it - Global Cuisine from a Southern Perspective.
Whenever and wherever possible, we utilize local ingredients brought to our back door daily by the various North Carolina Farmers. We feel it is important to showcase the farmers and all the hard work they do - besides, local just tastes better!
