fig (asheville ) review

Opted for this place last nite for our anniversary dinner and had an awesome meal. Be advised not to just expect to walk in and be seated. Even on a Tuesday nite most tables were full and they only seat about 28 and this includes chairs at the bar so reservations are a must.
We started with a winter greens salad - nice tangy dressy - reminded us of salads we'd had in Paris. Also split sauteed sweetbreads over this fantastic celeriac (I think?) julieened salad - reminded us of the best coleslaw we'd ever had and one last appetizer was a sort of stewed oytsters with leeks in this creamy leek sauce which was just thicker than a soup but thinner than a stew but perfect for sopping up with the crusty french bread.
I had the duck breast over the chive spaetzle - wow! this was the second time I'd had this dish and it was just as awesome. Hubby had the seared scallops over a spinach risotto. This is one restaurant where you are sorely tempted to pick up the plate and lick it afterwards - or at least that's how I felt.
No dessert - too full.
Meal with 3 glasses of wine was just over $100.
