Club’s Restaurant and Pub open to the Public on Select Days - Asheville, NC - April 23, 2010 – The board of governors of High Vista Country Club unanimously approved an agreement with Frankie Bones Restaurant & Lounge, a popular American – Italian restaurant and bar with locations in Asheville and Hilton Head, to provide new dining options for club members and the surrounding community. Reservations are encouraged for guests from outside the community and can be made by calling 828-891-1986 ext 105. Upon arrival at the front gate, dialing the restaurant will get you buzzed into the community. As part of the new operating agreement, the Club’s dining areas and pub, the Laurel and Cordell Rooms and Robinson Pub respectively, will be operated by Frankie Bones. The Robinson Pub will be available to the general public every day of the week except Wednesdays. Wednesday night will continue to be a High Vista Country Club “members only” night. High Vista Country Club members will receive a 15 percent discount on all food and non-alcoholic beverage purchases and will continue to enjoy exclusive access to the Cordell Room and Robinson Pub on Wednesday nights. The new partnership took effect at the beginning of this month.
“The board is excited about this new relationship and feel it is a win-win for club members and the surrounding community,” said Roger Lange, president of the club’s board of governors. “Frankie Bones will bring many of their favorite and popular dishes to our club and will enhance the overall dining experience. It also allows us to eliminate many of the operational and labor costs that typically accompany the food and beverage service and provides us with a new source of revenue, one that doesn’t financially burden our members.”
"Our partnership with HVCC has afforded us a great opportunity to continue to develop our presence as a dining, catering and service leader in western North Carolina,” said Alan Wolf, managing partner of Frankie Bones. “Our team enjoys working in such a beautiful setting and they've been very well received by the members and guests at HVCC."
The new partnership will be overseen by Community Resource Systems, the professional management company that was recently employed by the board to manage club activities.
