Bent Creek Bistro, which is located in the Arboretum’s Education Center, offers indoor and courtyard dining from March through November, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Sundays, as well as for the Arboretum’s annual Winter Lights event from mid-November to the end of December.

Based in Asheville, The Colorful Palate is a renowned catering company co-owned by childhood friends Ragan Evans Lewis and Tara Letts. Since 2002, the company has earned a reputation for preparing tasty food with a focus on high-quality, locally-sourced, customized menus. Bent Creek Bistro represents a new name for the Arboretum’s primary dining option, replacing The Savory Thyme Café, which the Arboretum has used for more than a decade.
