Spent a couple of days before Christmas in Asheville with some wonderful eats, and here's where we ended up. Great first night at Cucina 24. Really spectacular hakurei turnip appetizer with both braised and raw turnips. Solid entrees of pork bracciole and lamb shank with white beans. Biscuithead for breakfast the next day - always fun and yummy. Light lunch at King James Public House of the meat and cheese plate. Great pickled veg with pork terrine, smoked trout dip and cheeses. So sorry to hear that they are closing - very bummed about that. Dinner at Nightbell. Wow! Truly amazing. Highlights were the "deviled egg," Cesar salad "taco" and the beef carpaccio. We shared the Canadian Waffle for an entree, and while it was very tasty, was outshone by how good the other items were.
As always, there was just not enough time to get to everyplace that I want to try - next on my list are Limones, White Duck Taco and Curate.
