Just came back from a week in Asheville NC, where we ate mostly at places that were recommended on this board. The event was a family reunion, and there were always too many energetic kids, so we picked places that looked both chowish and acommodating--Asheville seems like a good town for that, in fact: lots of good informal places. The best places for us were The Early Girl eatery (especially the duck!), Tupelo Honey, and India Garden. All worth trying and very accommodating for children. My thanks to all Ashevillians who have posted on this board--I feel well directed.
