As I mentioned in a previous post, we visited Asheville, NC earlier this summer. What a cool and artistic town! There was live music on practically every corner, galleries everywhere you looked, and an abundance of craft breweries. We were big fans of Wicked Weed Brewing – their Watermelon Saison was super refreshing on a hot day! The food scene was great, too. We loved Cúrate, a tapas bar that came highly recommended by a friend. Our favorite dishes were a seafood dish served in a sardine tin (of course I can’t remember the name now!), pork skirt steak, and their delicious grilled lamb skewers.
On this trip, we were lucky enough to stay in the old part of the Grove Park Inn overlooking their beautifully landscaped grounds. This historic Arts & Crafts hotel is filled with cool details like inscriptions carved into the walls, Roycrofters furniture, and elevators built into the enormous stone fireplaces. We had dinner at their Vue 1913 restaurant and were very impressed with our meal that featured local ingredients and a gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains. I’m already thinking about planning a return trip so I can take advantage of their renowned underground spa!
