If you want to eat where Anthony Bourdain does when he visits Asheville, then you have to stop at Cúrate in Downtown Asheville and have some Tapas. We started off with some fried marcona almonds with sea salt which were incredibly flavorful. Next were grilled ramps which tender and delicious. A beautiful and interesting cold dish was the white asparagus tossed in a lemon vinaigrette which was served with a house made “light as air” mayonnaise. Stunning. The Galician style octopus served warm with sea salt, olive oil, Spanish paprika, and Yukon Gold potato purée left us wanting more. After that, the Pincho Moruno arrived. It was a beautifully plated little dish of lamb skewers marinated in slightly spicy Moorish spices served with homemade pickles were a little over cooked but the pickles added a nice hit of acidity. The butifarra con mongetes was a spectacularly juicy mild pork sausage served with white beans and aioli that left us seriously considering licking the plate clean. We finished the meal off with the Tarta de Pistachio, a collection of pistachio sponge cake, lemon thyme ice cream, and a wonderfully tart blackberry coulis.

Overall it was definitely one of the best meals Asheville Area Movers has eaten in the city, highly recommended.
