Nice time in Asheville

After looking at various posts on restaurants in Asheville, my wife and I decided on Fig for an anniversary dinner Friday night. It was wonderful. We split the chicken liver pate starter (a special) that was very tasty and creamy. The entrees were a duck breast and a beef tenderloin. The steak was the best filet I have ever tasted. Lots of flavor, it had to have been dry aged a while. Our server was spot on and recommended a nice bottle of French red for $45. The only glitch was a long wait between appetizer and entree.

We also had lunch at Early Girl. $10 for a meat and two, I had the meatloaf and my wife had the lamb shank. Very good. Breakfast at Tupelo Honey was wonderful as always. We had the mandatory 40 minute wait but it was worth it. It's always funny to stand outside the Tupelo, see people go in and be told it's a wait for a table and then see them walk off in a huff. Just can't wait that long. Chill people, you are on vacation, relax.

Thanks for the recs.
