We live in Asheville and found ourselves walking around with my friends from LA. Such a popular corner, didn't think we'd find anything at 12:30 but got a 6 top in the patio. Great lunch, deep wine list, Jay's a great bartender!

We lucked into a half-off wine sale, so we split a nice bottle of wine to have with our anniversary dinner. The lamb was cooked perfectly, and the service was spot on. We would definitely return when we are in the area.

They were friendly to our Border Collie. Of course, she is a member of the family and not a pet.
HI...I wondered if you might be serving Thanksgiving Dinner. If so, is it a Buffet? Menu overview? Prices? Thank you very much. I look forward to dining with you.
