Interesting - seems to be a very short drive from Black Mountain, location of the legendary experimental college which boasted John Cage, Robert Creeley, Robert Rauschenberg, among others, as faculty members under the rectorship of Charles Olson. Cool: there's a museum in downtown Asheville...

look here

So that's the sightseeing. Not sure about lunch. :D

Edit: by the way, web-searching is easier if you spell it Asheville, assuming you do mean the town in North Carolina, not one of the many Ashvilles in other states. You know, you could open yourself a forum for The South if you felt like it.

If the author could go around the place hitting random readers with a rubber hammer, the Pink Pig would still be worth a visit.

When we visited Asheville several years ago, we stayed for two nights at the Richmond Hill Inn. Their restaurant, Gabrielle's, is one of the best in the city. We had dinner there both nights, and the food was excellent.

Btw, the big attraction in Asheville is the Biltmore Estate. Definitely worth a visit.

I set off the alarm there when I was 12.

The billiard room looked comfy, so I thought I climb over the velvet rope and shoot a few racks while my folks ooohed and aahed on the guided tour.
Bad idea. :D

Was in Asheville on a Tuesday night the other week.  Unfortunately, Rhubarb is closed on Tuesdays.  Little Jumbo is an excellent cocktail bar.  Pretty town.

Did you consider Cúrate and/or Nightbell but decide against? Or were they not open? (I've never been to either, but I'm interested because of Katie Button.)
