Situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville, N.C., approaches the peak of its popularity. Known for its vibrant arts scene and historic architecture, the city is home to landmarks like the breathtaking Biltmore Estate and Art Deco City Hall, as well as the Folk Art Center and Asheville Art Museum. It’s also not far from Pisgah National Forest, ideal for hiking, camping and picnics.

Reviews / Restaurant

Asheville, North Carolina’s, progressive attitude has given rise to an influx of foreign residents and, with them, a stunning array of phenomenal restaurants. Cúrate is one such example of exquisite cuisine. This stylish and quirky Spanish eatery packs a load of taste in small samples and is one of the best options in town.


I was able to grab a seat at the bar, where guests are encouraged to watch the kitchen put together the wide array of tapas plates available. The staff was incredibly friendly and chatting, always willing to answer questions and make small talk when free. The design is the perfect combination of rustic and modern and provides a warm atmosphere.


The food was incredible. Each tapas plate we sampled was perfect, while the pincho moruno — lamb skewers in Moorish sauces — were mouthwatering. We also shared a torched chocolate ganache at the end of the meal that would be worth a second trip alone. I was truly delighted to find such a place in a mountain town in North Carolina.


Cúrate has a reputation for being booked weeks in advance. We were lucky enough to grab a table on a Thursday evening, but be sure to call ahead to be safe. Also, make sure your wallet is full as the prices are a little steep. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
