Eating Asheville is a very appropriately named food tour in a city that has a wealth of innovative and arrived restaurants. Barry and I had a wonderful afternoon walking downtown Asheville with a food guide in a group of about 17 other foodies enjoying a sampling of Asheville restaurants, hearing from local chefs and learning some of the local history. In all, we made eight stops,the highlights for us were:
- Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar – Well, yes, the name says it all. This is a really large, almost elegant place in an historic building that is a bookstore with tons of comfy seating amid thousands of books and they serve wine, small plates, desserts. Just the best.
- Rhubarb – southern food with innovative approaches, really fun place.
- Cucina24 – modern take on italian food – very unique mix of local and classic Italian.
What a fun, though fattening, way to enjoy a city! “Where Werid is Normal”
