A Place Called Mayfels

Before this weekend gets going good and something else distracts me, I thought I’d share photos of the other restaurant we visited while in Asheville last weekend. As you know from this post, most likely you will not see any food (yet again).

This place is called Mayfels. There were so many places with unusual names, I didn’t think too long about it, but if you want to know how it got its name, click here and once there, click on ‘about’. It’s a short and cute story.

Rather than show you the food, how about this photo of some of the patrons enjoying their meals? Obviously, if this had been after we received ours, there would be no photos at all!

I am kind of curious about the blackbirds that are part of the décor shown below. When you are in Asheville, such an art laden town, there are a lot of things that might not be readily explained. You just enjoy them and the mystery.

The chandeliers were pretty cool too. After seeing all the ones in NYC and then in Asheville, maybe I’ve missed the boat on lighting. I briefly entertained the idea of hanging one in my studio, but you know those adventurous little bears I have. They’d be literally swinging from the chandelier in no time. In fact, I think they would think I had put it up purely for their gymnastic entertainment. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I’ll just have to take photos of chandeliers when I am out and about.

Our seating was by this window. When we arrived, the only choice available was inside, but soon this outside table was empty. Of course, it didn’t stay that way for long.

If you are looking for a place to relax, seeing something unique and interesting, Asheville definitely fits the bill. This won’t be my last photos of the city of course. There’s far too much to see and I’ve not done it all or seen it all yet.

Oh and yes, the food was delicious. In fact, my husband is still talking about it.
