We had a wonderful weekend in Asheville, North Carolina visiting with my cousin Suzanne and her husband Steve who flew in from the Detroit area. My husband and I drove down from Fredericksburg and the four of us went shopping and site seeing, and we talked, and talked, and talked some more. It was a lovely time and I can’t wait for the next long weekend together.
There was another activity we all willingly participated in. We ate wonderful food in wonderful restaurants. Needless to say I didn’t cook this past weekend. So although I don’t have recipes to share, I do have pictures of the yummy, pretty food we ate.
The first restaurant we visited is rated No. 1 on Trip Advisor with 111 reviews. It almost sounded to good to be true so we had to visit Fig Bistro. What a great experience all the way around. We called on Friday and requested reservations for Saturday night. Fig Bistro was booked (because of the Valentine’s weekend thing) but did offer to put us on a cancellation list. They noticed we could be accommodated at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and booked the table of four. They were very nice and helpful and took our number in case an earlier time became available.
We discussed the late dinner plans and decided to see if they had Friday night available. They did and we reserved our table for 7:30 p.m. After a little shopping downtown we decided to head that way and ended up being 45 minutes early. They were so nice and didn’t seem to care at all that we were crashing our dinner reservation. The restaurant was not full so they took us right to our table.
The menu looked great, our waitress Amy was very helpful, so we got started! Since we were within a few blocks of the entrance to the Biltmore, we ordered Biltmore wine to start.
Please check back tomorrow and I’ll post our Biltmore adventure.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
