Here’s the press release. I have to say that I eat at Frankie Bones fairly regularly and love their food and atmosphere. I know I give a lot of attention to downtown Asheville restaurants, but this place deserves your attention.

Perfectly seared sea scallops are gently laid atop a masterful culinary creation of rice pilaf and sautéed fresh arugula. A signature pineapple cucumber slaw completes the flavorful dish. And the best part is the entire entrée is less than 600 calories…certified!

Change is in the air this fall at Frankie Bones Restaurant & Lounge; Chef Erik Freeman has been hard at work with noted area Dietician, Laura Tolle, creating The Fresh Grille Menu, which will offer 10 seasonally inspired entrees with less than 600 total calories each.

“Our guests continue to want fresh local ingredients and creative recipes,” comments Paul Norris, managing partner at Frankie Bones, “but we’ve also seen a revived desire for truly healthy options.” This “right for the times” menu offers our guests a complete dining experience with great tasting food that offers positive lifestyle benefits as well.

“This is exciting news for everyone,” said Laura Tolle. “But especially for those in the medical field who can now confidently recommend a local restaurant that guarantees a healthy dining experience.”

Frankie Bones meets the taste expectations of today’s culinary savvy adults and will continue to offer guests’ their favorite big foods and drinks, but will now feature the Fresh Grille menu along side the traditional offerings. The new menu debuted Nov. 7. Frankie Bones Restaurant & Lounge opened in 2007 in Gerber Village in South Asheville, Serving Steaks, Seafood and Fresh Grille cuisine in a casually elegant environment.

Open daily for lunch and dinner, as well as a “big city” Sunday brunch complete with the best Bloody Mary station in town. The award- winning wine list, and local area brews consistently wins praise. The restaurant features daily local sourced features, and drink specials such as Whiskey Wednesday and Ladies Night Thursday, and BOGO bar food during their daily Happy Hour. Visit for more information, or call the restaurant at (828) 274-7111.
