Asheville dinner....not too loud

BayouTeche Oct 24, 2011 10:46 AM

Trying to set up a dinner with the in-laws for the first weekend of November. There will be six of us. I'd suggested Curate, but my father-in-law's hearing isn't what it used to be. I'm thinking it might be to noisy for him to participate in dinner conversation. Would this be an accurate assumption? Other suggestions?

    Fig in Biltmore Village might be a good choice. It's very small and hasn't been noisy on past visits. http://www.figbistro.com/

    If you're going to visit the Biltmore Estate, consider the Dining Room at the Inn for dinner. It's very, very good, not at all noisy, but very, very expensive. If you're a passholder, you may make a reservation for your party after 5 pm and they will not need tickets to the estate.

      I've never been to the Dining Room at Biltmore Estate, but my parents liked it. My Mom has an auditory nerve issue so quiet rooms are important to her. Fig sounds like a good choice too.

          be curious how you like it. I've had some great food there during a reception they hosted (off-menu food), but didn't know how the daily menu stacked up.

      Corner Kitchen is fun. Good luck.
