Wherever I go, I ask local workers for their favorite dining spot. Bouchon gets it, hands-down in Asheville.
Delicious and very imaginative spins on traditional French dishes, with new plates as well. Excellent wine selection. Unique, cozy, great energy, very enthusiastic staff. Service is not rushed, but very efficient.
AND THE BEST LOCAL COFFEE YOU WILL EVER HAVE! Dynamite Roasters' Clemencia Suplicar ("Beg for Mercy").
Did I mention the desserts???? Dreamy... forget the calorie counter.
Just genuine - and genuinely enjoyable.
