Asheville - Sunday brunch Modesto

After a couple of disappointing dinners here we decided to give it a shot for a Sunday brunch. Overall it was ok.
Here were the positives:
-Initially very attentive waiter who was very thoughtful about his wine recommendations.
-more than ample portions
-colorful plates
-loved the Chupacabra

Not so keen about
-the waiter disappearing midway through the meal and having to flag him down while he buzzed past us...I guess this meant they were understaffed but I saw several servers so...
-we ordered a shrimp and grits and were brought rice (albeit good rice) instead without any sort of explanation or apology. We overheard a server telling another table ("I don't know why they didn't make grits today..."
-I had a fish "crepe" with fish and chorizo which was just sort of dry. It was helped by the sweet potato puree and would have been great w/ a bit more salsa - oddly only about a tablespoon on my plate.

The usual 'throw everything on the plate together and hope for the best' style of presentation reminiscent of Salsa's. Fortunately my post-meal tummy seemed to do fine - unlike some Salsa's experiences.
