Located in the heart of downtown Asheville in a restored building built in 1919, Polanco exemplifies the best of Mexican Specialties from Chef Ricardo Carrasco. Polanco opened in September of 2017 and is located on Market Street. Since opening Chef Ricardo has been serving his interpretations of classic Mexican cuisines and taking Mexican food to new levels with a focus on combining traditional Mexican dishes with tasty vegan options. Polanco serves as a multifaceted restaurant. With a hip bar scene downstairs and fine dining upstairs, Polanco offers a taste of Mexico in more than just-food. Every weekend after dinner, the chairs and tables downstairs move and the lights dim to form a dance floor with a DJ and dancing - Latin music every Friday and mixed music every Saturday. The upstairs of Polanco can be booked as a private space and comfortably seats at least 50 people, up to 70. Chef Ricardo is available for Chef’s Table dinners as well as offsite catering.
