Modesto in Asheville (Grove Arcade) open

Stopped by here for lunch today. They have barely been open a week so keep that in mind when you read this. We split a couple of the appetizers and a pizza. The pizza was a tarragon cream with shrimp (tails included) and too large chunks of artichoke hearts, very, very, bland. While service was attentive, it was perhaps a little too attentive - I hate it when you have some morsels left on a plate and you have to hang onto it for dear life. It is pretty expensive for pizza basically a light meal for two or personal for one, 1 appetizer, 1 soup and 2 non-alcoholic beverages - $28+tip. It is small, only about 34 seats at tables inside with another 10-12 around the bar. Hopefully they will continue to refine this menu. Based on the fact that this is a Hector of Salsa fame restaurant; I had high hopes and expectations that were not met as the menu, while sounding creative, was not able to follow through on the kitchen and taste portion of the deal.
