Forbes recently recognized the growing flavors of Asheville in its list of top five secret foodie cities. In its blog, Forbes highlights the interesting and widely varied types of cuisine and presents a list of festive restaurants sure to please the palate.
In addition to Curate, a restaurant featuring Spanish tapas, the blog mentions the French Broad Chocolate Lounge which serves liquid truffles and Looking Glass Creamery that pairs fresh cheese with wines. Just reading through the listings should be enough to make you head out for a nosh.
The Forbes top five list preceded the recent USA Today Travel listing of "6 Small Cities with Big Tastes." That list of top six also mentions Curate as well as Rhubarb and Seven Sows Bourbon Larder. One of our Facebook followers suggested Strada Italiano and Zambra should be added to this list as well. About a year ago, Greybeard Realtors and staffers suggested their favorite family restaurants as well. Regardless of what list you choose, it should be apparent that Asheville has an incredible palate for cuisine choices.
With its cultural offerings and natural beauty, Asheville doesn't really need another reason to be the place to live. A look at these recent lists, however, may have you salivating for your own home.
