I started visiting Asheville 2 years ago, and Curate quickly became a favorite.

Last night's visit was a bit odd, though. The meal was very good overall. However, 2 things gave me pause. First, my dining companion ordered the brussels sprouts. The dish arrived with 1 brussel sprout, and perhaps another one cut up (there were other elements to the dish, so it was hard to tell). We thought it was a mistake! The server actually tried to "defend" the dish. At a restaurant of this caliber, why would she argue with us about brussels sprouts? Right or wrong (and we were right), offer to come out with a half dozen brussels sprouts. The other odd thing is that there were...shall I say..."sheets" of sediment at the bottom of my glass of red wine. I have drank my share of wine, and I have never seen this before. Again, the server defended the wine. This was not a little bit of granulated sediment. I still believe something was wrong. They did offer to bring me an additional "splash" of wine. I did not accept the offer; I wasn't angling for free wine...I sincerely question what that was at the bottom of my glass.

Will I return to Curate? In a heartbeat. But something was off last night.

Excellent food and drinks! We had the pitcher of sangria which was good. Three of us shared 6 plates. We particularly enjoyed the shrimp and skirt steak.

My husband and I took a road trip to Asheville and this was our first dinner there. Having traveled the world over, this was hands down the best tapas anyplace. Definitely requires a reservation. Very authentic Spanish tapas offerings.

This was my second time to curate. We were there for my wife's birthday. Her first time. It was delicious. Lardo and pork were perfect. Good wines and cocktails too. Service was excellent. We ended up going back the next night too. Squid ink pasta was off the charts. It's a must go to when visiting Asheville.
