Default Restaurant suggestions in Asheville, N.C.?

The wife and I are taking a trip to Asheville in a few weeks. Anyone have any restaurants you would recommend in the area?

The Black Forest is very good German fare. At least it was 8 years ago.

Inventive modern cuisine... http://tableasheville.com/
- ever evolving menu that was really good when I ate there 2 years ago. I have a friend who is a chef who recently ate there and said it was still solid

Lively atmospher and French comfort food... http://ashevillebouchon.com/
-very affordable, Trout Almondine is awesome, owner is a nutty French guy who is super friendly, I've eaten here 3 times and never been disappointed

Modern Italian... http://www.cucina24restaurant.com/
- ate here a couple of weeks ago, excellent food, we did the chefs tasting 7 courses for $65 per person (pretty damn reasonable price if you ask me), 1 of 3 restaurant in the whole city that serves Pappy ($52 per glass - I passed on it at that price), corking fee is $15 (we brought our own juice)

Farm to fork .... http://www.marketplace-restaurant.com/
-this place has been open for years, last ate there 4 years ago and it was great, talked to some friends who ate there recently and they said it was still good

Tapas... http://www.curatetapasbar.com/
-this place is new, I have not tried it but it has gotten great reviews

I've got some recommendations for lunch and breakfast if you need them.

The Asheville Pizza and Brewing Co is a cool place. Has good pizza, they make beer there (try the coffee flavored one its great), has an arcade and a movie theater.

I ate here 10 years ago and watched "28 Days Later"! Best beer and pizza for a zombie apocalypse!

As already mentioned, Tupelo Honey and Black Forest are two places we always hit when we spend a weekend in Asheville.

Another good place is a tapas restaurant, if I remember correctly it's called Zambras.

They've franchised it so there are a few starting to pop up.

They are taking over the space in Chlt where Pewter Rose had been. Pewter Rose is better than Tupelo Honey.
