Twigs uses the best and freshest ingredients possible, and specializes in a variety of dishes of the highest quality. We include our touch by adding a southern twist on many of the classic favorites, including Mountain Trout, Dungeness Crab Cakes, Filet Mignon and Duck Confit.<br /><br />Twigs supports local farmers and co-ops whenever possible. We source local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. Each and every dish is prepared to order by our highly trained kitchen staff and served with a warm smile from our attentive waitstaff.

"Very good dinner- wild salmon and fish specials both very good and prepared as requested. Restaurant a tad pricey but overall experience positive enough that we look forward to returning."

B&B cooked up a unique restaurant dining experience and zest'd it with a bit of rock n roll. You can chow down in our Burger & Beer Joint Restaurant and/or high five your friends to your winning team in our Sports Bar !

"Open later than most restaurants is main reason to go. Burgers are actually good enough but vary from visit to visit. Last nights sweet potato fries dry, skimpy etc. Place is what it is which is not terribly much."

"Chef Michael Forman is obviously a well- trained chef. The lobster flatbread appetizer special was nothing short of amazing with soft crust, feta cheese, tomatoes, other vegetables. The shrimp and grits was a gourmet version of a traditional NC favorite as was the mountain trout. Prices were extremely reasonable especially given the quality. The wine list was limited, but glasses were substantial and prices also low. Only downside was a somewhat limited menu but still something for everyone. A real find in an area with overpriced and mediocre restaurants. Will definitely return."

"Based on our experience, rating bistro orca poor might be a tad generous. We went on a Sunday night; it was not crowded. They "ran out" of their only special and salmon -yes, salmon-leaving one fish- tuna- which we were told was "sushi" grade. It was ordered rare. It came out medium to medium well and was not sushi grade. ($28) All dishes including the admittedly tasty but skimpy octopus appetizer had an extraordinarily generous helping of potatoes. Though half empty, the service was astoundingly slow. Pluses? A very good beer selection and some reasonable wine choices on a small wine list. There did not seem to be a manager on duty no one seemed to care how we were doing-etc.The restaurant was quite pricey even if everything had been good"

Around the corner from the Fine Arts Theater in downtown Asheville, Limones Restaurant provides an inspirational mix of Mexican and Californian cuisine along with inventive bar selections served by a warm, professional staff. Long before working and training under some of San Francisco’s most talented chefs, Hugo Ramirez was raised on the intense and varied flavors native to his hometown of Mexico City. In fact, he still calls on his mother for the secrets of traditional Mexican dishes, which he reinvents in innovative and surprising ways. At Limones, Hugo’s love of Mexican food is combined with his training in french-influenced California cuisine.

Chestnut is an American restaurant. We are in a 1920s era building in downtown Asheville, right across for the Aloft hotel and the double decker coffee bus (Double D's Coffee and Desserts). Parking is plentiful (and cheap) at the public deck under the Aloft Hotel.

"Their other restaurant, corner kitchen, was far better. Chestnut has a limited and overpriced menu, overpriced and so-so wine lost, and inexperienced servers- and they ain't giving it away. Food good but there are better places for the money."
