Breakfast and Lunch in Asheville
I’ve read bunches of posts here about the food scene in AVL, although not much lately. Now it’s show time.
My wife and I will be in Asheville next Friday, and we’d like everyone’s opinion on the BEST place for breakfast (near downtown), and a few good choices for lunch.
I’m a carnivore; no vegan or gluten free need apply.
Thanks in advance --
Solid recs, all. Let me just put in a plug for Sunny Point in West Asheville for all-day breakfast, esp. if it's nice out and you can sit on the patio. Also: Seven Sows is doing some whole next-level dinner specials right now. In fact, they are currently neck-and-neck with The Admiral in innovation.
This is what the wife (and baby Winefuhrer) and I typically do:
Over Easy for bfast, hands down...great juices (juiced in front of your very eyes) and a really nice choice of plates. There are a couple tables outside if you like to people watch.
Lunch: Table, Curate (it is good but I am not as sold as everyone else seems to be), Limones (if open...depends on the day) and Seven Sows does brunch I believe
Around 2 PM we head over to 5 Walnut so I can stuff my face with jerky and almonds while drinking a glass of wine
Then we usually head to Storm for a Chaicodin and/or MG Road for a drink
Next, Cucina 24...then, if early enough we take little winefuhrer to Vincenzos for music only...the piano music keeps her from screaming while mom and dad try to dry out a bit from a day of gluttony/overimbibing
Now...this is all downtown...heading outside of downtown is a whole new and, sometimes, better ballgame
I forgot Seven Sows - we had brunch there the other day - fabulous. Check the hours - I think it's only Saturday and Sunday. No one was there but us and another couple even though it's packed at dinner - they should work on getting the word out about brunch b/c it's excellent.
