Asheville, NC - Restaurants that host private parties/events?

LOL, I thought the comment from bethd127 was kinda funny as well. No offense but almost every restaurant gets at least some things from the big boys. Sometimes you have little choice. Also, there are quite a few 'classically' trained chefs here in town. Just FYI.

Anybody been to 28806 in Asheville lately?

right, fish can not fly planes, so obviously they are not by themselves. With our proximity to the carolina coast, florida, and louisiana, i think it is unreasonable to say we are "very" limited in seafood selection. Of course a chef wants a wide variety of fish, but working with ingredients and finding creative ways to present your "regional" bounty is a one telling sign of a good chef. on the other hand, presenting different and "unusual" products to the customer is also the sign of a good chef, I guess.

i love great fish as much as the next foodie, but flying fish in from hawaii regularly is very taxing on our enviorment. its a widely done, but it is one of the more irresponsible things a chef can do when talking about sustainability, and the impact on our earth. growing up in the southeast region of the US, i have found great seafood is at our back door, you might just have to fish around awhile to find it.

Disappointment at Lilette

i think stella is a great place, but best in the city?. the lack of local and regional seafoods and meats at stella is a little annoying. w/ such a great bounty of ingredients it confuses me the way everything is flown in from half way across the world. it inflates prices, which cuts out a whole demographic of diners. it shows a severe lack of sustainability and disregard for a more "green" cooking. with that being said the pastry chef is progressive and amazing.

Brooklyn Hound in NOLA

can i just suggest Adalphos on top of the apple barrel bar on frenchmen(across from dba). defenitely a locals place. great food, ambiance, cheap but decent wine. A little rough around the edges, but a real gem. it has italian cajun cuisine. i dont live in new orleans anymore, and i miss adolphos, verti marte, monas, and liuzzas the most. oh, and horinoya.

Vizard's, Alberta's, La Petite G???

peristyle is not what it used to be since anne kearney left. I would go to Couchon. Great food, nice space. lots of small plate options. Though not much or any seafood.
