Asheville Sat night - Table or the Market Place

Hi guys,

Looking for local advice once again - you are the best! We will be in Asheville for the long weekend, and looking for a fun, foodie restaurant for Saturday night dinner. Last time we were in town, we went to Fig (per your recommendation) and loved it. We are looking for the next best thing. We considered Gabrielle, but it seems a little staid for us.

What are your thoughts? Thanks!

  1. my choices, in order of preference for "fun, foodie"....and since you've already been to Fig

    1. good food (and drink) + good fun= LIMONES!

      P.S. Reservations are a MUST on weekends.

          While I wasn't similarly enthused with Cafe Azalea I also don't think it is a fun, foodie place to be in downtown Asheville, primarily because it is in a strip mall in East Asheville.

            I disagree now that they have opened a patio.

        2. Limones or Table - I think are just better values than the MP.

            I agree--though I'm much less enthusiastic about Table.

              agreed. MP seems a bit tired lately.

                Mark might just take exception with that comment. You should tell him. It's just been around for 25 years.
