The Cantina is reopening on June 4th at 4P by reservation only. 



The Cantina at Historic Biltmore Village shut their doors on March 17th due to the spread of the Coronavirus. The very next day the National Restaurant Association estimated a $225 billion decline in sales among independent restaurants resulting in the loss of 5-7 million jobs. The owners of The Cantina made a commitment at that time to provide free food for their staff and their families for at least 18 months. They intend to expand this plan to benefit other displaced hospitality workers in WNC. If you would like to support their efforts to provide comfort and care during this trying time please follow this link.
