Your Dining Room Away from Home

New And Noteworthy

We can always count on The Biltmore to offer the dining experience that we crave. There’s Cascade for a fun yet casual lunch or dinner. Palme D ‘Or makes it a date, or the perfect place to take visitors or guests for fine French cuisine. And then there’s Fontana—an Italian romance on the plate and in the ambience. Whichever setting you prefer, there’s many a deal to be had, and many a party to look forward to. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite happenings this month. 


Bastille Day Festivities

The United States celebrates its national holiday with barbecue and ice cream, while France commemorates Bastille Day (Monday, July 14) with brasserie fare like steak frites and tarte tatin. Celebrate at Cascade at the Biltmore with a Pétanque Tournament and Ricard Cocktails. More info at:
