Cúrate Bar de Tapas


13 Biltmore Ave, Asheville
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

High-end tapas spot Cúrate was one of the restaurants that put Asheville’s food scene on the map when it opened in 2011. This retrofitted 1920s bus depot has a magnificent marble bar and open kitchen where you can watch dishes like gambas al ajillo, fried eggplant, and rossejat get prepared in real-time. If you can’t manage a reservation (they’re notoriously difficult) or are dining with a larger group, head around the corner to La Bodega, Cúrate’s new all-day pintxo and wine bar. They usually have plenty of space for walk-ins along with a bottle list that’s fairly pricey but filled with a fun selection of natural and orange wines, sherry, and vermouth primarily from Spain.
