Cucina 24 Deli and Blue Water (Asheville) reviews

We tried the C24 deli (right next door to C24) late last week. I had a roast turkey on rye with fig jam, provolone and garlic aioli. My husband had the Italian w/ a pepper relish on wheat. Rye and Wheat were the only bread choices , and while they were both very fresh and delicious, my husband commented that it would have been nice to have the option to put his Italian on a classic white hoagie. The sandwich portions are HUGE - I could only eat half - but for good reason seein as how nothing comes with them. Priced around $7-8, this seemed a little high for a sandwich only. But the ingredient quality was above and beyond many more choices in town - fresh turkey, thick layers of creamy provolone, generous swaths of the dressings. They do have some antipasto-type things available, priced at 1 for $3, 2 for $5, etc, and we opted for the $3 portion of deviled eggs, which gave us 3 halves. They were good, but again, overpriced at $1 an egg half. The AC was out where you order at the counter but they let us walk down the hall and eat inside the restaurant. So even though it looks like there are no tables, you can eat inside. I'd go back, as I'd like to try the BLT made with prosciutto, arugula and heirloom tomatoes and the Chickpea which said it had goat ricotta and mint pesto.

And...yea! Blue Water is open on Charlotte Street neat Starbucks. They have a menu that looks different from the one in Hendersonville, and I think it looks great. Open for lunch only (market until 7pm), the menu offers clams casino, shrimp and grits, crawfish etouffeee, smoked trout and pimento and cheese quesadilla, and a salmon BTL to name a few. I did not have the chance to eat there yet but we got shrimp salad and a pound of swordfish to throw o the grill last night, and let me tell was an amazingly fresh piece of fish. I am SO stoked this place is now open in Asheville. The people that work there are so nice and the quality is top notch.
