Good date place that doesn't cost a fortune in Asheville

Anyone have any suggestions for an upscale place that you can get out of for less than $75? I'm talking a couple of drinks and grat. included.

Have you noticed any of the established places dropping prices?

  1. One word- Zambras

    85 W. Walnut Street, Asheville, NC 28801

    1. you can probably hit the admiral at that price point (my tab for two is typically ~$80); you need reservations. it's not white tablecloth by any means; but you can get a fairly private, quite table.

      any higher end place downtown will be hard to stay under that ceiling. a zambra/curate might do (drinks are expensive), but i wouldn't expect to be sated.

      if you don't have to be in asheville proper, then chef mo's might do the trick.

      we're getting into the the beginning of tourist season, so prices will actually be going back up & specials going away now that they don't need to attract the locals for the cold-weather months.

        not upscale, but tomato & nine mile are a nice meal out, too, without breaking the bank.

      2. Stone House Market. Excellant, Private and very romantic
        Very reasonable prices

        2. Thanks everyone! I keep forgetting about Stone House Market, and that's in my neck of the woods.

          I recently had a pretty nice spread at Boca for that much.
