Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings are “all-you-can-eat mussel nights” at Asheville’s downtown, French bistro, Bouchon. Have as many bowls as you want, with five different sauces to choose from:
Parisienne: White wine, thyme, onions, garlic & butter
PBR: Steamed in Pabst Blue Ribbon beer with Lusty Monk mustard & butter
Mediterranean: White wine, onions, tomato, roasted garlic & saffron
Le Bleu: White wine, bacon, onions, parsley & blue cheese
Pernod (a French, anise-flavored aperitif): cream sauce
In short, mmmmmmmmmm! Served with all of the pommes frites you can eat, as well!
Bouchon and it’s more casual cousin, Creperie Bouchon have both been in the local news lately, as their owner, Michel Baudouin has brought famous Chef Tres Hundertmark on as executive of both kitchens. Chef Hundertmark is expected to introduce crepes inspired by his most recent travels to the Big Easy.
Now, you have the perfect excuse to extend your weekend stay at Applewood Manor Inn, and take a 10 minute stroll into town for a taste of Franch, Southern style. “Allons-y!”… (“Let’s go!)
