This year's edition includes enticing photographs, theme-based write-ups and listings of 600 or so independent, edible businesses. Not sure what to eat for dinner? Pick a page.
If you're not a print-copy person, the guide has a totally overhauled Web dimension, avleats.com. Search restaurants on the site to learn more about their history and read reviews from other diners.
Did you have an awesome dinner you want to tell the world about? Rank the restaurant using Xpress' five-star system (and leave some kudos in the comment section).
Best of all, the Eats & Drinks guide celebrates Asheville's strengthening dining and hospitality scene. Think of it as a love letter to the restaurants and bars that bring farmers, locals, tourists, visitors and chefs together for a great meal. And avleats.com is a way to give back some love, to let it be known.
