Anything new in Asheville?

Are there any interesting new restaurants or things to see in Asheville this year?

Rae, have you tried Stoney Knob or Well Bred Cafe in Weaverville? I liked them both very much. Secret Garden in Weaverville is a first class spa if you are in the mood for being spoiled.

Have not tried those, we'll check them out. Thanks for the suggestion.

There used to be a restaurant in a mill near Weaverville. Is is still there?

Weaverville Milling Co is still there but I can't think of anyone who has been there recently and the one person that I know has been there within the past year wasn't too complimentary. I think the ownership changed and it is pretty stale. There are a couple of new places in Grove Arcade downtown that are worth checking out.
Hector who started Salsa's and Zambra's has 2 new places, Modesto and Chorizo. The former has had uneven reviews and is open for L &D. The latter for B &L. Around the corner (also on the Arcade) is Carmel's - have heard good reports on L & D. I also liked Sante, the wine bar in the Arcade. 12 Bones is new within the last year - it is a BBQ place open only for Lunch near the river. There are a couple of new Thai/Sushi places on Biltmore Ave. There have been some new additions to shops and galleries downtown and the same w/in the Arcade.

Get one of Lisa's facials. You will be most delighted. The inside of the spa is quite fantastic. The bathrooms are amazing.
