Angelo Karnezis and his business partners are opening the restaurants. When they had the opportunity to move into the former Jack of Hearts, which closed last year, they jumped, Karnezis said.
“Joe Ekert did a great job with Jack of Hearts, and we felt like it fit the style of what we are trying to do in downtown Asheville with exposed brick and beams, and the same color palate. So we decided to do the same menu and keep the name,” Karnezis said.
The Twisted Laurel in Weaverville will feature pasta, subs, salads and the authentic Greek food Karnezis said his parents made when he was growing up. “We going for service and quality and creating a great place to come hang out.”
Karnezis said his crew is moving fast on the Weaverville space. They’re cleaning it and lining up vendors and hope to open in two weeks. The downtown Asheville location is set to open in September, he said.
