Fantastic meal at Table last weekend while in Asheville for a few days. My wife and I escaped the kids and did an anniversary lunch there.
Pretty standard fare for a "New American" menu but everything was done really well
- Hickory Nut Farm pork chop with mac 'n cheese and broccolini (so good we went to the farm and bought some for the freezer at home)
- risotto with brussels sprouts and cheese (who knew?)
- salade lyonnaise with great lardons
And the first time I've ever found TWO solid Gruner Veltliner's on one menu.
So good, we almost took the whole family there for dinner the next night. Alas, they were booked.

I have heard how great it is for years. I only went once and was underwhelmed by the service as well as the food. It may have been an off day for them, but once is all it takes for me. Rude, slow service in a not so busy restaurant is not a turn on and with all the other great restaurants in town, I don't have to go back. Maybe one day.
They've changed their menu and made it more exciting--many more interesting apps and entrees. And their menu changes every day to reflect the local produce that's coming in. Looks like they're taking their cue from the Admiral. Haven't tried it yet--I hope their execution is as good as their imagination. Has anyone been there lately?
