The daily newspaper reported recently that Macchialina Taverna Rustica, an upscale restaurant by a couple of Miami restauranteurs, was planning to open in the space as early as September. That plan’s been ditched, apparently, in favor of a Chinese eatery. Which would be just fine by me. Asheville’s needs some good Chinese.
But who knows. Rumors about various restaurants for that site have been flying for a year. There was going to be a Waffle House downtown at the site. Then there was going to be a Chipotle. We’ll wait and see.
