Posana® is a contemporary American restaurant in the heart of downtown Asheville on Historic Pack Square. Our company culture is founded upon our desire to nurture the wellbeing of our staff, customers, and community. We are committed to supporting equity, diversity, and inclusion in our workplace and are actively working against racism in all its forms.  Since our inception, the philosophy at Posana has been to offer a seasonal menu that draws inspiration from local ingredients.

We are fortunate to have strong relationships with local growers and producers that enable us to offer the freshest ingredients available in every season.   Moreover, we continue our support of the Appalachian Sustainable Agricultural Project (ASAP) and the wider WNC growing and food-producing industry to emphasize the importance of operating in an ecologically-conscious manner.

Our Team

Peter Pollay, Executive Chef and Co-Owner,
Martha Pollay, Co-Owner

Peter Pollay opened Posana® with his wife Martha in 2009 as a café and following extensive renovation, Posana became a full service restaurant in 2013 offering a sophisticated local and seasonal menu to compliment the friendly, relaxed sentiment of the town. Since opening the restaurant, Peter has become heavily involved in the local farming community, launching his own urban garden in 2014 and hosting an annual benefit dinner supporting the ASAP’s Growing Minds Program.  Martha is an avid photographer, bringing her skill and talent to Posana.

Peter and Martha share a passion for travel.  Experiencing the food while they travel is a must for Peter. The culinary style of each area is something that really interests Peter and inspires Martha’s thirst for photography capturing the local culture.  These experiences, flavors and presentations have a deep impact on Chef Peter’s cuisine and Martha’s photography and it continues to be a strong influence for them both.

Peter, Martha and their two children are regularly at Posana, gathering for a family meal, interacting with their staff and meeting their customers.
