It's not exactly a new restaurant, but rather, it is new to me - Storm Rhum Bar. I had been there for cocktails a few times with friends, and I'd been there for a photo shoot last year with Chef Owen, but somehow I had missed this gem of a restaurant until last Saturday night. What a find! My table of 6, well accustomed to the abundance of good restaurants in Asheville, all agreed that the food was superior, creative and delicious, and the service was great too. The veggie plate was one of the best I've ever had, and I'm not even a vegetarian. My friends raved about their fish entrees and the brussel sprouts, but it didn't end there. See for yourself.
Storm is just a short walk from the Asheville Urban Nest too - another perk. Check it out next time you're in Asheville.
