Humans of Corner Kitchen – Sarah Ogden

Sarah has been behind some of the cocktail and wine discoveries you may have had if you’ve visited us in the past year, and she’s also such a positive presence in the restaurant. You’d be hard-pressed to catch her without a smile, even in a dinner rush.

What is your position in the restaurant, and how did you end up here at Chestnut?

I am an Assistant General Manager here. I was applying for jobs in Asheville and came across the listing. I didn’t realize what a staple The Corner Kitchen was when I first applied, but I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this team.

Can you talk a little about what you’re passionate about outside of what you do for work?

I have a kitten and she is my whole world! I also love all things wine and cocktails. Wine is fascinating because you can travel the world in a wine glass, and I have fun making my own bitters.

Are you an Asheville native, or alternatively what brought you here?

I am a Jersey girl at heart and I recently moved here from Florida. Classic half-back!

What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learned working in a restaurant(s)?

The most valuable thing I have learned is how to connect with different kinds of people. I have worked alongside accomplished chefs to high schoolers and everyone in between and have learned from every one of them.

Do you have any food-related recommendations for people in the Asheville area?

There are so many great restaurants, purveyors, and breweries here, so don’t go to the same place twice — unless it’s Corner Kitchen!

Corner Kitchen is proud to be part of Asheville's vibrant food scene and...don't forget that parking is free in the village (and very abundant during dinner service)!
