Seems like top restaurants that normally get mentioned these days are: Admiral(W.Asheville), Zambra) & Cucina 24, Bouchon and Limones(all downtown), Corner Kitchen, Rezaz & Fig (Biltmore Village)
New on the scene: Sazerac (downtown) seems to be getting a lot of thumbs up for its New Orleans-style fair.
For Gluten-Free customers Posana(downtown) is a godsend
Transition time for Savoy which is supposedly becoming a more reasonably priced Italian restaurant.
Curras Dom in Woodfin closed for a while and I think has now reopened w/ a new menu. They are also in the midst of enclosing an outside patio which should double the amount of available seat.
Stovetrotters in Biltmore Village closed recently
Haven't heard much lately about Marketplace. Long time owner sold it several months ago.
Several new restaurants in the rapidly developing South Asheville/Biltmore Park area...have heard mixed reviews on Trevinia(Italian - part of a chain of others in SC and Brixx. Recently heard some good things about the restaurant in the Hilton - Roux so need to try it.
