Asheville Updates - Spring 2012
Strada - operated by former chef of Fiore's - Strada is nxt to Sazerac & across diagonally from Mellow Mushroom. Nicely done interior. Great service. Italian centered menu features pastas, antipasti, pizza and entrees. The night I went it was pretty busy and we only had appetizers which were not that impressive so I need to try again w/ entrees.
Donatelli's pastry shop - next to Malaprop's - they've done an amazing job w/ the interior of this place, looks and feels like a high end shop in Europe or NYC w/ gorgeous (and delicious) finely crafted desserts. Vince Donatelli (chef &pastry instructor at AB Tech) and his wife Karen are behind this venture.
