Fodor's Review

If you have the blahs, Cúrate, with its extraordinary and very authentic tapas and fun atmosphere, is the cure. There are about four-dozen small plates on the menu (ranging from $4 to $20), about 90% of which remain throughout the year, though seasonal dishes are added. Especially notable are a selection of imported cured Iberian ham dishes, the creamy chilled gazpacho, and berenjenas la taberna (fried eggplant drizzled with mountain honey). The restaurant, in a 1927 row building just south of Pack Square, once Asheville's original bus station, is long and narrow, with high ceilings and exposed ducting; bar seating is popular, as you can watch the chefs cook and be at the heart of the action, but the small alcove at the back is quieter. There's an interesting list of Spanish wines and local and Spanish beers. The same owner has opened Nightbell, a midpriced restaurant and lounge serving eclectic bar snacks and updated classic American dishes, around the corner at 32 S. Lexington Avenue.
