Travel: Asheville Eats!

Dive Into One of the Carolina's Most Delicious Cities

One might adventure to Asheville to explore the iconic Biltmore Estate which is a notable staple to the area. What some may not have discovered is the abundant culture of food that Asheville has developed over the decades. Within the dynamic community of the forgotten west side of the Carolinas, lie some lovely gems. In 2022 Asheville’s “must know” food scene earned the city the No. 1 ranking on the “Small Town, Big Flavors: 2022 Foodie Cities” List. Let us take you on a little food and beverage tour of Asheville, North Carolina. With under a four-hour drive, this is an easy fall weekend getaway adventure for you and your tastebuds. 

  1. Cúrate – The wine list alone will blow you away but wait until you taste their Tapas. Experience the essence of Spain housed in a 1920s bus depot. Listed as one of America’s 50 Wine Restaurants We Love in 2021 by Wine Enthusiast magazine. Cúrate means “cure yourself” in Spanish believing there are curative effects in sharing good food and wine with family and friends.

Changing their dinner menu monthly keeps locals on their toes and travelers delighted.
