Asheville Dining Mediterranean Style

Last night Ron and I had the pleasure of meeting our Florida friends for dinner in Asheville. Andon-Reid Inn is only 30 minutes away. What a beautiful drive through the mountains. Since our friends are the "tourists" we thought we would let them choose where to dine in this lovely city. Lucky for us they chose Enoteca at Biltmore Village. What a wonderful place to eat. It's a very relaxing setting with a hand selected wine list and Mediterranean foods prepared in a simple way.Our first order of business was to select a wine. Red was the color of choice and we had a delightful VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO SUPERIORE. The menu is very innovative and refreshing. We all started with the "Create Your Own Antipasto". You can choose either 1,3,5,or 8 selections from a huge list of cheeses, hard cured meats,seafood and vegetables, olives and dips. You better like to share when you order one of these. Their Caesar salad was wood grilled and out of this world.The entrees we ordered were cooked to perfection. The mussels they served had chorizo in the sauce, the pacific halibut was served as a bouillabaise, and the grilled skirt steak was served with goat cheese mashed potatoes.Was there room for dessert? Of course, there's always room for Dark Chocolate Ganache Torte with Cranberry Sorbet, and a Red Wine Reduction. Couldn't think of a better way to spend time with good friends over amazing food and pleasing ambience!
