About Patrick O'Cain

As an Asheville native, I am no stranger to the concept of community building. This mountain town has seen huge growth in my lifetime, and much of that with a sense of connection and community. Part of this growth and connection have centered around food and beverage production and consumption. We take our “locally grown” seriously in Asheville. While I have endeavored to create a space of nourishment and connection at Gan Shan, I have been surprised – and excited – to see that vision naturally expand in ways I never expected or could have foreseen.
