Although CARRABBAS ITALIAN GRILL is a chain restaurant, it has consistently wonderful, mouth-watering Italian food that makes us return again and again! The menu features a variety of delicious appetizers, soups, salads, brick oven pizza made on a wood burning grill, pasta specialties, and family classics. For a change of pace, it’s entertaining to eat at the open kitchen bar….they may even slip you samples of food as they are being prepared.
There are two fabulous restaurants in Asheville and we highly recommend just about everything on the menu! We often choose several entrees to share just to extend the flavorful taste experiences. This last meal we ordered the CHICKEN BRYAN a grilled chicken breast with goat cheese, sundried tomatoes and a basil lemon butter sauce, and the INSALATA FIORUCCI mixed field greens salad with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers and grilled eggplant in vinaigrette, topped with a hazelnut goat cheese medallion. We always order their TIRAMISU, the most heavenly Italian dessert on earth and Carrabbas makes the best by far!
RESERVATIONS: Although they do not take reservations, you can call when you are on the way and they will put you on the waiting list.

When you are enjoying a day of exploring all the delightful shops, galleries, boutiques and antiques stores on Main Street in downtown Hendersonville, be sure to eat at WEST FIRST WOOD-FIRED restaurant located a half block off of Main Street on 1st Avenue West. All their dishes are thoughtfully prepared with quality ingredients cheerfully served in an artistically dramatic setting.
Whatever the wood fired oven does in the cooking process of the pizza and other dishes, it adds a distinct delicious flavor that we love! Their pizzas are hand-made with organic wheat crest and are topped with freshly-grated Romano cheese. The pizza we order this week was their Goat Cheese Pizza with fresh basil pesto with spinach, marinated artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes and, of course, goat cheese….yummmmm! Robert and Ginny shared their made-from-scratch tasty bean soup and for dessert, we all shared in their chocolate hazelnut tiramisu….creamy, rich and so very decadent!

Yes, it’s the BILTMORE WINERY located on the Biltmore Estate in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina. Your entry ticket to the world-famous Biltmore Estate includes much more than just a tour of the George W. Vanderbilt’s spectacular 250-room home (the largest in the U.S.), it also is the passport to visit the incredible grounds, restaurants, outdoor activities….and the Biltmore Winery.
Sheltered in the mountain valley of the French Broad River, the 94 acre vineyard is in a perfect climate for grape cultivation producing award-winning wines including Chardonnay, Riesling, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. The hand-picked grapes produce an annual harvest averaging 250 tons of grapes.
1971 saw the first plantings of grapes by George W. Vanderbilt’s grandson, William A. V. Cecil, who felt this would be a natural extension of the self-sustaining economy of the Biltmore Estate. Indeed, this has proven to be a huge success with the ever-expanding vineyard and a 90,000 square foot wine-producing and bottling facility opened in 1985. This beautiful facility, converted from the dairy barn with underground tunnels with perfect temperatures for wine making, was designed by the Biltmore’s architect, Richard Morris Hunt.
Experience it for yourself on your self-guided tour of the winery operation that ends in the Tasting Room where you can sample (and purchase!) the wide range of award-winning Biltmore Wines now available. For a full listing of the wine offerings, the many awards and details on the winery, visit their website at: http://www.biltmore.com/our_wine/
