Posana, an upscale restaurant in Asheville’s Pack Square, serves seasonal cuisine made of locally-grown, unprocessed, premium ingredients. Upon acquiring the space in 2009, owners Peter and Martha Pollay refurbished the restaurant to be more eco-sensitive. Then, in 2015, the couple invested in their own urban gardens to grow special ingredients. The menu changes regularly, and it recently diversified to offer gourmet dog food. The menu launch coincided with the Asheville Humane Society’s fourteenth annual Dine to Be Kind fundraiser. Peter said the idea was spurred by all the patrons who like to sit on the restaurant’s patio with their dogs, for whom the restaurant has always provided filtered water in bowls. Martha had the difficult chore of designing a menu that would be lean and healthy. She decided on homemade biscuits, grilled bison burgers, grilled chicken, and meatloaf for main courses. Bacon soy doggie ice cream is the only item on the dessert menu now. Local businesses Carolina Bison, Ashley Farms, and Brasstown Beef will be among suppliers. All items are served on dog dishes and cost between $3 and $8. Dogs are not allowed inside, but must dine on the patio. The concept proved newsworthy, getting a spot in, of all places, People magazine.
