AIR: Asheville Independent Restaurants, Here We Come!

AIR: Asheville Independent Restaurants, Here We Come!

Happy New Year, folks! And adios to you, 2017!

On this New Year’s Eve, I am pleased to share that we have just purchased the 2018 AIR Passport! For those of you who are not familiar with it, AIR stands for Asheville Independent Restaurants, and it is an organization consisting of some of our most creative residents here in Asheville: our local restauranteurs. They host the annual Taste of Asheville and have the beloved Passport, which is a coupon book that  offers a one time buy-one-get-one-free dinner at many of our local eateries – we are talking over forty restaurants!

We plan to get the most bang for our buck on our date nights in 2018 and using the AIR Passport is going to help us both support local and save money – both are things we love.

Get yours today!

Do you have an AIR Passport? What local treasure has it led you to??

What’s On The Menu?

What’s On The Menu?

Our vision for Date Night Appetite was born out of a mutual love of food, drink, Asheville, and one another. Clearly, a recipe for success, amirite?? As a wife and mother in Asheville, I often come across postings on social media sites (I’m looking at you Asheville Mamas Facebook page), repeatedly posing the question ‘where can my honey and I go for a tasty date night meal…?!’ Stressed and pressed for time Mamas are hoping that someone can provide the right recommendation for their few hours’ respite from the household routine and kiddos. I’m here to say ‘we got y’all.’

In the coming months, my husband and I aim to visit many of these suggested spots to give them our full attention and provide you with in-depth reviews on what’s good and potentially not so good about spending your precious date night hours at these fine establishments. We’ll provide imagery for all of you visual learners so that you, too, can get a sense of what you might find on your table should you choose to make a reservation of your own.

Hubs and I already know and love many of our romantic local restaurants. A few favorites are The Admiral, Smoky Park Supper Club, Limones, Zambra, and Curate. While we haven’t officially reviewed all of these just yet, stay tuned. The critiques will be coming soon. In the coming months, we also plan to check out the following eateries that we’re excited to try: Nightbell, Bull & Beggar and The Anchor. If you have a suggestion for a great date night spot, drop us a line!
