Fans of French cuisine will enjoy this bistro’s café-like setting in the Paris of the South. The dining room is elegant and the patio perfect for people-watching in downtown Asheville. Charcuterie and fine cheeses, beef tartare, and a rustic goat cheese and onion tart are among the starters. Entrée highlights include several steak cuts—served au poivre, in a béarnaise sauce, and with foie gras truffle butter—a salmon bouillabaisse, and duck confit and white bean cassoulet. The menu changes regularly to utilize fresh, local ingredients.
