“Why is this place not absolutely crowded?”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

We live in Asheville, just down the road from Black Mountain. We've been to every good restaurant many times which is why you can trust my reviews of Cafe Azalea, Chef Mo's,
Limone's, the Admiral, and all the rest.

Just ate at Palate (okay, the name is idiotically pretentious) for the third time and I'm surprised that the place has very little business. Small menu, good wine list, great service. The restaurant is part of the historic Monte Vista Hotel in quiet Black Mountain.

Highly recommended. The Sunday Dinner fried chicken is the best.
