As most of you know, later this month we will debut the expanded location of Cúrate.
Since first opening our doors in 2011, our goal has been simple: to bring the best Spanish flavors and genuine hospitality to our home town of Asheville.
That’s why we’re excited.
This January, we began our expansion into the space at 13 Biltmore Avenue next door, growing our kitchen and allowing us more room to cook the Spanish classics we’ve always wanted to serve, from suckling pig and charcoal-grilled meat & seafood to–finally!–paella.
It’s also allowed us to build on the dining experience, adding just 42 seats total to our 91-seat space, while still preserving Cúrate’s intimate, convivial spirit. Inspired by the vermuterias we frequented in Spain, Cúrate will now have an extended bar offering vermouth, sherry and cider on tap, which you can enjoy with pinxtos and snacks as well as Counter Culture coffee. And our new charcuterie bar, or jamoneria, will display cured Spanish ham and meats sliced and sold to order, to enjoy with a G&T or to take home.
And while our footprint may have grown, our commitment to excellent service and delicious, authentic Spanish cooking will never let up.
Your support over the years is so important to us. While we’ve had multiple offers to open Cúrates elsewhere, you remind us every day that our hearts are in Asheville. And we’re not going anywhere.
We’re so excited for you to see what we’ve been up to.
We’ll be closing our doors temporarily March 13 to work on construction. We’ll be back in touch at the end of the month with our new opening hours and menu.
