Normally, I love to try new things and I want variety, variety and more variety. But, sometimes, it pays to stick with a good thing. I was visiting Asheville with some friends in August of' '03 and decided to take them to a place that I knew would be a winner. The last time I was here was a great experience and it was a pleasant surprise to come back and discover that the lunch time prices are much lower than at dinner time.

Favorite Dish: I had a great beer from the Highland Brewing Company, which happens to be an Asheville based brewery. I tried the St. Terese's Pale Ale, which was slightly malty and had a nice spice to it.

Then, I had a light lunch which consisted of some good bread and a Spinach-Strawberry Salad with an almost candied walnut crunch and a cool, tangy dressing. It was awesome!
