“How can you go wrong with a brewer, baker and killer chocolate-maker, a creative partner who happens to be the Avett Brothers’ cellist and a general manager who happens to be a popular local DJ?

Transfer Co. Food Hall is a gorgeous new gathering spot and food space in the oft-overlooked east side of downtown. Built in a historic Carolina Coach bus garage, Transfer’s centerpiece is a huge, lug-nut-shaped bar. Open now: Locals Oyster Bar, Che Empanadas and Asheville’s Burial Beer. By the end of the month: Benchwarmers Bagels (from the Boulted team). In the spring, Videri Chocolate Factory will move its production here, with space for classes and a test kitchen. Summer will bring Saxapahaw General Store, the first grocery in the neighborhood, along with a calendar of music, gardening and nutrition events.”
