First stop: Tupelo Honey Cafe
Hot damn, that restaurant is delicious. I'm counting down the days until they open in Greenville, just so I can get my hands on those biscuits again.
Next Stop: The Biltmore Estate
Every spring, they plant tons of tulips in the garden and I was freaking out over how pretty it was.
Next stop: Biltmore Winery
A free tasting was included in our ticket, and we took full advantage by tasting all 20 wines they had available. Ryan and I were both surprised to find we liked one of their Chardonnays the best (it's our least favorite wine), so we purchased a bottle and a cheese plate and soaked up the sunshine on the winery's patio.
Next stop: Downtown Asheville
Drinks at Thirsty Monk and dinner at The Southern (both are places we had visited back in July)
My coworker, Whitney, used to live in Asheville and told me this place had the best view of Asheville (I'd have to agree with her)! The bar is a little secretive in that you enter through the old Flatiron building and ring a doorbell for the elevator attendant. He then takes you up to the 8th floor in the hand-operated elevator, and you step outside into the "bar," which is basically just 3 levels of fire escapes. They had a fire brewing on the middle level, so Ryan and I huddled there to watch the sunset.
A perfect ending to a perfect day in Asheville!
