    The Sunday brunch at Limones is a must. They have wonderful SoCal Mexican-inspired brunch fare and the best Mojitos and Bloody Marys in town. Lovely decor, too. (Google the website, if you want to take a gander at the menu).

        Second Limones and not just for brunch. Dinners are wonderful, too!!!

        Sounds great--but I was thinking more like Sunday evening. Not much is open--any ideas?

          I'm surprised you are finding that not much is open. Here in ASheville many places are closed on Tuesdays to accomodate tourists. What type of food do you like?

            Thanks, Leah--I was hoping you would respond. Usually, chef owned places with local produce. It would be nice if this was not a break-the-bank place, but we don't mind spending money for good value. I can cook steak at home so rarely eat it out. Not vegetarians but open to good vegetarian food. Actually any type, as long as it is really good. I have read some of your reviews and I'll bet if you like it, so would we.

              kind of a fun place downtown that is open Sunday nites is Lobster Trap on College St. Left Bank on Patton - more towards fine dining - they make their own goat cheese and Market Place on Wall St - sometimes a little snooty but use good quality ingredients.

                Tupelo Honey is a great downtown destination. The Shrimp and Grits is amazing!
