MEET THE CHEFS – TRACY ADLER, OWNER – CAFÉ ON THE SQUARE

Café on the Square, Asheville, NC

Located at One Biltmore Avenue in downtown Asheville, Café on the Square offers appetizing American food in a non-smoking atmosphere. The restaurant opened in 1989, targeting casual, fine dining customers. Artwork, provided by local artists, is on display, complimenting the interior decoration and theme of the restaurant. The lighting is soft. The décor is pleasing to the eye. Tables and chairs are plush and comfortable. Café on the Square is just the place to have a pleasant family lunch or dinner.

Owner, Tracy Adler offers something unique at Café on the Square. After the birth of her second child, Tracy discovered a unique way to snack by using a small four-ounce bowl for snacking purposes, choosing to name the bowl a “Yum Yum Dish.” Promoted on the web site, http://www.yumyumdish.com, the set of four dishes are colorful and safe to use in the microwave, or dishwasher. The Yum yum dishes are great for snacking and dieting since the dishes will only hold four ounces of snacks. Tracy has a passion for children and contributes a portion of the sales from Yum yum dishes to Louie’s Kids, a non-profit organization providing obese children from low-income families an opportunity to attend camps to help them lose weight.

The menu at Café on the Square contains a variety of tempting entrees and appetizers including Cajun Eggplant with Andouille Sausage, Encrusted Chicken with Whiskey Dijon Glaze; Sesame Seared Tuna with Wasabi Vinaigrette, Mountain Rainbow Trout, and a Spinach and Artichoke Au Gratin dip appetizer, served in a Yum Yum dish you get to keep.

According to reliable sources Cafe on the Square is no longer open for business; however, the website, http://www.yumyumdish.com is still available. Visit the website today and purchase the yum yum dishes. They are the perfect size for tasty desserts and snacks.
