Asheville -- Dog friendly Friday and Zambra Saturday

b

We're headed to Asheville on Friday for a birthday weekend -- any suggestions on a restaurant for Friday where the dog (welsh corgi) can sit outside with us? Have been on petfriendlyasheville.com and noticed that several restaurants allow dogs but "leashed outside rail" -- our little guy would hate that; he's very good at restaurants and doesn't get in the way....

Also, we've got a gift certificate to Zambra's for Saturday night - anything to particularly get or skip? Many thanks for input.

    I love corgis...you can come to my house! My dog likes Sunny Point and Modesto (modesto will almost certainly have some really good stuff and some really odd stuff)

    Zambra - if you see fried calamari w/ a green sauce, it's good. Order the bread ($3.) Get a wine from the Jumilla region. Scallops and shrimp usually good. Quail often good. I skip the desserts.

      Many thanks -- I had seen Sunny Point and it looked particularly tasty, esp. as the BF generally sleeps in and their all-day breakfast will be a hit...

      As far as Zambra, I've never had anything there that I didn't enjoy. I think the menu changes pretty requently, so it may be hard to mkae reccomendations, unless someone has been there very recently. This may help:
