This place is phenomenal! We relied on others' ratings and picked this place for dinner on Friday night. Oh, thank you other raters!!! Husband had the Farfalle Bolognese, I had the Macaroni Gratin (features applewood smoked bacon and gruyere, emmentaler, and 2 other cheeses in the sauce). Neither of us would give the other a bite until I, regrettably, got full and let him finish my dish. Both were excellent, and so flavorful in a traditional way yet with something extra. We had the Bibb Lettuce Salad with Manchego cheese as a starter and I loved it. I'm going to attempt to recreate both the salad and the macaroni dish at home, only because I was unable to persuade the staff at Fig to open another location near my house! As a testament to the fabulous flavor, on Saturday at lunchtime, we had to choose a location for our last meal in Asheville. We aren't fans of repeating, so we bravely chose another venue and went there. The funny thing is how HAPPY we were this other place had a wait; we looked at each other and said "Fig Bistro?" Yes, we beat feet back there for a repeat, splendid performance. Perfect and memorable meal.
Facts: They have a courtyard for outside dining when the weather accommodates. Reservations are encouraged. The price is very fair for the quality, quantity, and service they provide. Don't miss this place.
