The old TK Tripp’s restaurant was demolished on Monday. A new hotel and office building is set to built there. Here’s a round-up of proposed downtown Asheville hotel construction.
TK Tripp’s was once a popular eating destination for downtown visitors and those who worked there. Folks who worked at City Hall and the county courthouse would often grab lunch or dinner there, and it was a popular spot for folks watching sports and election returns. But that was 20 years ago. Asheville has changed.
This makes me so sad….my mother and I used to go to Asheville several times a year – we live near Charleston, SC. Tripps was always on our itinerary. The staff was wonderful – they always recognized us and remembered us! The food was always good – never had anything there that I did not like. My mother was heartbroken when it closed. She passed away just 2 months ago at the age of 87….seeing these pictures reminds me of the good times I had there with my mom….
