Bouchon has been one of Asheville’s premier restaurants for many years. Not only are their french fries famous, but their mussels are so delicious, and those are just the starter plates to get ready for the main courses.
Their crepes were made perfectly, and tasted as if we were dining in France once again.
And the rest of the menu at Bouchon is perfect, with many dinner selections, two of which I myself am going to try soon. So next time you are dining out, or visiting the Asheville area; Bouchon is a restaurant that is sure to please.
A eatery named Sonora Cocina Mexicana in downtown Asheville is one of the newer restaurants on the scene. They come with a Latin twist of great food and flavors. And they are right at the upper head of Asheville’s South Slope, so a great spot to either start or finish your beer tour and get some food in you. We decided to have a quick meeting, so we met there, ate, and talked life & business.
These are the Enchiladas and they were cooked to perfection. A very nice upgrade from the traditional plate.
Autumn had the Quesadilla, well at least half of it, and then got the rest to go for a late night snack.
So if you are headed to downtown Asheville, this spot is a great eatery to put on your list. And I saw some of their beautiful craft cocktails but did not get a chance to try one. Maybe next time!
During the holidays, we always make our way out to the Grove Park Inn. On this occasion, they were not letting anyone on the property unless they had a reservation, due to their place being fully booked inside and out. So we did what any sensible person would do and made a reservation at the Edison. And we are glad we did. The atmosphere was great, the service was stellar, and the food was so good! See what we ate below…
This salad was tremendous, in looks and taste!
Shaved beef sandwich with a side salad.
Shrimp & Grits, the Chef split the plate for us so this is a half portion, but I should’ve eaten the whole thing!
West Asheville has become a whole foodie experience of their own. Now a new restaurant named Jargon is opening soon on Haywood Road with lots of fine food options to eat. Sean Piper and Chef Matthew Miner are the folks that are making all of this happen.
The Asheville Foodie Community recently launched their new video about restaurants and eateries in the area, and focused a big part of the video on West Asheville.
Some days run later than others. Working with so many business owners in the Asheville area does not lend itself to a stiff schedule. Sometimes it’s early mornings and late nights, whatever is needed to accommodate the company or campaign we are implementing. So it started getting late one night, and we were checking place after place as we were coming from north Asheville. Everywhere was closed or about to close. Then a light went off, and I checked Post 70, and it was open! We headed over there and had such an incredible dinner, a foodie night to remember for sure.
First we had a couple of craft cocktails off of their menu, and they were made to perfection. Then we had a Pork Belly appetizer that was served on mac & cheese. Next up was the Surf & Turf option, steak and shrimp, and the steak was the best I have had in awhile. For dessert, Lavender Creme Brulee mmmmmmmm!
You must check Post 70 out, and also plan to visit their new Post 25 restaurant getting ready to open in south Asheville.
