Need Help Deciding Which Asheville Restaurants to Choose?

As it happens, Steve and I are very interested in the food scene here in Asheville, and I am in the middle of shooting a cook book featuring Asheville restaurants called "Cooking with Asheville". The book will have photos of the feature recipe, the chefs and the environment, and they will be accompanied by the inside story of each restaurant. You can imagine that in the process of shooting this book, I've gotten an inside view to many of the restaurants here, so feel free to ask me for guidance when you are either heading out for dinner when you're here, or if you are planning ahead to make reservations (which you'll definitely need way ahead of time if you are interested in the most popular places). This is the new Asheville - we've been discovered!! As one local business owner asked me "Would you rather live somewhere that everyone's coming to or a place where people are leaving?". Good point - the former, I'd say. Below are a few shots to get your mouth watering...
