I suspect that soon Asheville or Western NC will warrant its own tab on Chowhound.......
Storm Rhum bar(behind Orange Peel) - have heard consistently good reports but alas, have not been
Junction (River Arts) - have been there for lunch a few times and dinner once...always very good with good flavors and presentation. Service is a little slow but enjoy your housemade drinks - it's worth it!
Wild Duck Taco (Riverarts) - Inexpensive, creative and casual
Jack of Hearts Weaverville - has quickly become a neighborhood favorite. Their daily specials seldom disappoint. Good beer selection and nice wine/drink specials
