Tupelo Honey Cafe hit all the right notes, including the fact that you can have breakfast for dinner at THC. The biscuits are Tupelo Honey are complimentary and flow like tortilla chips at a cheap Mexican restaurant. They are ridiculously good; some of the better biscuits I've had in some time. Slightly crisped on the top, soft, buttery, and airy inside.
The fried chicken BLT with slabs of Benton's was tasty as was the mac and cheese side. We also enjoyed the rich and homey goat cheese grits on the side.
Other highlights from the trip include stops at Earl Girl Eatery on Wall Street where brunch is the thing.
Lexington Avenue Brewery, one of Asheville's many brewery/restaurants that dot the downtown area. With more time, I'd have hit each brewery, but I'm glad we made the stop at LAB.The restaurant also has a thriving late-night scene with live music and after midnight eats.
Also quite tasty were the chorizo nachos with ancho-guava sour cream.
The beef sliders with blue cheese and truffled frites.
