Seems like there is always something new going on in Asheville so chime in if you have more info or have been to any of these:
MG Road - hearing LOTS of good things about this bar/small plate place by the owners of Chai Pani
TAP Asheville - closed. Unfortunately no great loss, too inconsistent.
Lots of cooking competitions going on in the "slow" months...Fire on the Rock in January. Restaurant Week in February.....
