I had lunch at Scratch last week. Lunch offerings included a variety of soups, salads and sandwiches, some of which were on the menu from 28806, including my favorite, the Southwest Club. They are all around $9-9.50, perhaps a little pricey for a sandwich, but they come with your choice of a hearty side. I can't remember them all, but I had a sweet potato salad that was very good. The remodeled space is very nice. Not much more info than that, but I'd definitely like to try it for dinner.
Boathouse is closed. I posted about Stovetrotters recently - we had a work dinner there on Tuesday and it was fantastic. One of the best meals I have had in Asheville.
I agree...prices were high for lunch. My co-worker who I ate with had a salad topped with salmon, and I think it was about $4 to add the salmon, so hers came in even higher. What was frustrating was that we ate at 28806 about 2-3 times a month, and I knew they were the exact same sandwiches, only jacked up about 3 bucks in price. Like I said, they do come with a nice side (which are $2 as I recall a la carte) but it's still a high price in my book, esp since you're adding in tip, which we didn't do more than $1 or $2 for at 28806 since it was counter service.
