Asheville Fig - similar to Market Place?

mcp1 | Jun 11, 2009 08:43 AM

I'll be in town this weekend and given the great reviews (Tripadvisor, here, etc) want to give Fig a try. But the pictures and descriptions of the food, along with some reviews make me think it's similar in approach to the Market Place, which I didn't enjoy. I ate there two times and both times was underwhelmed - it seemed like there was almost no flavor.

Even if the quality is better, would you describe fig as having a very delicate approach and lightly flavored? If so, would I be better off at Table or Nova, which I'm also considering? Also, does the Admiral have a website?
