Marlene lives just south of Asheville, and one of her favorite restaurants is Postero, located at at 401 N. Main Street in Hendersonville. If you are not from the Asheville area, Hendersonville is about a half hour drive from Asheville. It’s historic downtown consists of a 16-block area filled with independent restaurants, quaint shops and fun things to do.
Marlene says Postero is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. It’s cuisine is described as “New American.” Serving local food, it also boasts a local chef. Jason Reasoner, the executive chef, is a native of Hendersonville.
Marlene knows a thing or two about customer service and described Postero’s as “over the top.” When celebrating her husband’s birthday at the restaurant recently, the staff presented David with a birthday card signed by everyone on the staff – from the executive chef down to the busboy!
But it’s the food that keeps her coming back. She and David like to start their meal with a cheese plate. Marlene’s favorite entree is grilled fillet of beef tenderloin, served with roasted mixed mushrooms and duck-fat roasted fingerling potatoes. Topped off with Postero steak sauce. Yum!
Save some room for desert. Marlene described her favorite which is definitely worth the calories – Roasted Banana Ice Box Pie. This original desert is made with roasted banana ice cream, peanut butter mousse, dark chocolate sauce and topped with a salted pretzel crumble. Double Yum!!
Postero is open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and Tuesday through Saturday for dinner. They are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
