Come Dine With

Executive Chef Mike Long

Mike Long comes across as a low-key, friendly guy, but when it comes to quality ingredients, he focuses with laser intensity and purpose. Today, as Executive Chef of The Asbury and Culinary Director for The Dunhill Hotel, he’s focused on big flavors, proper technique and balance on the plate.

“Southern food speaks to me with its ingredients. We’re going to be focusing on the beautiful ingredients and letting them sing. That’s what my food is about. I don’t want to put anything in the way of celebrating them.”

Inside The Asbury

The Asbury Charlotte Selected as an OpenTable 2019 Diners' Choice Restaurant

Open Seven Days a Week

Named in honor of Louis Asbury, Sr., the Charlotte architect who designed the Mayfair Manor—now The Dunhill Hotel—in 1929, The Asbury celebrates the best of what the South has to offer in ingredients, technique, creativity, and, of course, hospitality. The Asbury is a tribute to the city’s Southern roots and the culturally diverse community of the New South.

The Asbury offers dishes that are uniquely Carolinian: modern but rustic, evolving but still rooted in classics, southern and welcoming. There is a strong tie to heirloom ingredients native to our area, lost to time and modernization, as well as specialty items grown by small, family farms throughout the local region.

Planning Your Visit

Open Daily

The Asbury serves dinner seven days a week, breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Please visit us at 235 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28202.

"Incredible southern food!! We like the inventive food and relaxing ambiance of the Asbury. Located in the Dunhill hotel, The menu changes seasonally so our new dinner menu was delicious. We tried the Pork chop entree with savory meat and greens, very succulent. The appetizer menu has changed and no more bacon jam:( but the goat cheese biscuits are amazingly delicious!! Hot fluffy bread homemade with sweet goat cheese. My favorite is their Fried green tomatoes appetizer is wonderful!! Served in a cast iron skillet with yummy pimento cheese and wonderful flavors!! The dessert of Beeswax ice cream is remarkable and fantastic! I think it tastes like allspice or nutmeg but the awesome server Elizabeth said its the beeswax!! The cocktails are also wonderful and I tried the old fashioned standard and it was excellent. For dinner we liked the German Riesling, which suits our simple summer dinner. Parking is available at the Dunhill hotel or there are several nearby parking garages."

"Biscuits were incredible, service was stellar, and the grits were done right! The oxtail curry soup was less impressive than the rest of the food I got to try, but it was still tasty. Definitely recommend and will hopefully have an opportunity to revisit for breakfast."

"DELICIOUS! Went here for a Saturday brunch and was not disappointed. I got the chicken and waffle and it was delicious. The chicken was fried crispy and juicy. The waffle didn't even need syrup. Also my friend got the chicken and egg biscuit which was also amazing. The biscuit was perfectly fluffy and buttery. Service was excellent. Will be back!"

"World Class Wedding Venues - Say "I Do" Worldwide - enjoyed our dinner at The Asbury. The Kale Salad is fantastic! The burgers are great also. Great food selection for a quiet small dining experience. The Asbury is a wonderful place to host a wedding reception and private dining experience. It is located inside the Dunhill Hotel - a great location in downtown Charlotte. WCWV gives The Asbury TEN STARS - great wonderful experience!"

"We came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and I'm so glad we made this choice! We started with the sticky buns which were to die for. I will absolutely come back and eat multiple orders of these. I had the beef cheeks for dinner which were tender and served over creamy mashed potatoes. The husband got the fried chicken sandwich which sounds simple but it was so perfectly fried with homemade pickles and a great bun. For dessert they gave us our choice and we went for the vanilla panna cotta with pumpkin seeds, granola, and apple and it was the perfect finish to the meal with just enough sweetness that didn't overdo it. Can't wait to come back!"

"This small restaurant, tucked into the Dunhill hotel, makes high-quality plates of food that are pretty and satisfying. We started with the Chef's Whim Deviled Eggs. They changed every day as far as toppings, but the Dijon flavor in the filling is always amazing! You must get these if you go! My second recommendation is the sticky biscuits. As their motto is #BodyByBiscuit, these are a great choice! Pork Cheeks entree was perfect with amazing mashed potatoes and perfectly cut apple pieces. I also recommend the cast iron Mac and cheese. (I got it for brunch previously, and it was easily a meal in itself.) Staff is small, but all friendly and nice. Great date spot!"
