The Biltmore Village is a group of shops and restaurants right outside of the entrance to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. My wife loves to spend time looking around in all the different galleries while I sit in the car or on a bench and get in some reading. Inevitably we finally agree that both shopping and reading are hard work and we start the equally challenging ‘trying to agree on a restaurant’ conversation. This year we happened to be parked right outside of a highly recommended restaurant called Fig Bistro.
Fig Bistro seats about thirty inside (I did not count) with couple of tables in the courtyard outside the restaurant for those nice days, which during warmer season, Asheville enjoys quite a lot. There is a small bar and the atmosphere is bistro with small close tables in a very comfortable setting.
Fig Bistro has a website and you can see the menus there as like most creative restaurants it probably changes. My wife and I shared an appetizer of maple glazed pork belly with white bean puree, bacon and apple compote. The pork belly was delicious with good fall feel to it with pork and apple. My wife had a salad of duck confit, local mesclun mix, beets and walnuts. I had a Wagyu burger with bacon and gorgonzola. The burger was a good size and tasted wonderful, really hit the spot. Service was excellent and everyone we came in contact with was friendly.
We just happened to be parked outside of Fig and located some good reviews on the phones so we just decided to eat there. very glad we did and we will be back. Check out their website at www.figbistro.com for latest menu and hours.
