An out of the way restaurant offering delicious unusual foods. Better get a long advanced reservation as this is a hot spot in Asheville with very limited seating. Wait staff were fun to talk with. Don't leave before you go in, as the exterior and...More

One of the best meals I experienced on a recent trip to Asheville. The food is delicious and creatively prepared with the best fresh ingredients. Service was excellent. Three of us shared the cheese plate, arugula salad, gnocchi, pad thai, and S'mores -- all great....More

I wouldn't have known about this restaurant if local friends hadn't made the reservations....well in advance. The unexciting exterior fit in with the neighborhood; not what I was expecting. And the interior decor isn't really anything memorable. But the food is worth the trip. Modest...More

Non-descript building housing an excellent restaurant. The compressed watermelon salad was delicious and beautifully presented. We then moved on to the Lemon Pepper Gnocchi. Outstanding! The Curry Fried Chicken was served with pimento Mac & cheese and collard greens. Do not miss the collard greens--they...More

I was able to find a few dishes without meat products, but only a few. Otherwise all dishes were well prepared and unusual. I would go back happily.

This restaurant came highly recommended by a waitress at another restaurant!! She said it is the hottest place in Asheville and I would agree. It is off the beaten path and looks not so nice from the outside but "go inside" and enjoy some of...More

I'm not sure whether to say "average" or "very good". The service was good. Our waitress was attentive and subtle. Not rushing. We ordered the chicken skins appetizer. Very bland. Not crunchy enough. The flat iron steak and the ribeye were delicious. I ordered Brussels...More
