I don’t want it to end!!! We had the same problem on our honeymoon – we just kept going and going because we didn’t want it to end.
That’s sort of what happened with the consumption tonight
Beautiful cheese on the porch of our B&B
And some delicious California wines!
Couldn’t decide if I wanted red or white
We had a taste of everything and relaxed a bit on the rocking chairs –
And then set out for downtown. We had originally booked reservations at Biltmore Village, but we decided walking back downtown (and back) would be better given we were drinking …again. So we changed our reservations. Glad we did.
We ran into a kitty like Lillis Bilis!
Upon arriving downtown (we walked + ran 11 miles today!), we headed up to a rooftop bar we’d heard about. You take a hidden elevator and it opens up to a beautiful mountain view!
We totally didn’t need a drink, but we had an hour to kill and ordered a Manhattan – to keep the neverending fun going. It wasn’t the best drink we’d had (a bit watery)
We coincidentally ran into a friend from Davidson, Nat, and his girlfriend, Mimi!! Love it when that happens. Great conversation ensued for a good hour till dinnertime.
As we were paying our bill….look who dropped his credit card over the edge!
LUCKILY he was able to easily retrieve it. We were all quite shocked to see him down there so quickly and easily!
We said farewell to our friends and made our way to our restaurant – Market Place. It’s one we have always eyed but never gone to. The menu looked incredible!!
I was eyeing the ravioli in particular …
Good bread was delivered. Ate it all!
And like we needed more, we ordered wine with dinner. A Sonoma Zin.
For an appetizer, the oysters caught our eye. Fried with a bleu cheese sauce with an apple slaw. They were delicious, but I wish the portion had been bigger!
Check out the size of the potato chips that came with it!
which unfortunately was not good at all. Very, very bland But lucky for us, we had great service and the dish ended up being comped by our server when I mentioned how lackluster it was. That made all the difference.
Matt ordered the sunburst trout (a favorite of ours) and while the portion was small, the flavor was spot on. That lemony eggy stack on the side was incredible!!
We debated dessert but wanted to get back out walking around..and ended up at Kilwins!
With ice cream cones!! Perfect summer evening treat for walking around a vibrant city
Mine was Rum Raisin and Peanut Butter Chocolate!! So perfect.
These bears say they don’t want us to leave Asheville! Wish this trip was Neverending.
