Where to eat in Asheville?

I am going to Asheville, NC in a week for a wedding, and I was hoping to get some local advice on the tastiest places to eat. Restaurants, markets, specialty shops, what have you. We are going down on Wednesday night, so we will have a few dinners and lunches open before the wedding over the weekend. Thanks!

Also, Afar did a nice story on Asheville not too long ago. Here's the online version: http://www.afar.com/north-america/asheville-north-carolina-united-states/guide

Rhubarb, from the former chef at Blackberry Farm, John Fleer, is supposed to be open by now. The WNC farmer's market (pretty sure it's daily) is fun to check out.

Meant Tomato Jam not Tomatoes--sorry!

Agree about Tupelo Honey and Tomatoes. The downtown Tupelo is better than the one farther from downtown on Hendersonville Road. Tomatoes has enormous portions. Never have seen biscuits--a specialty--so huge.

I like the Early Girl Eatery downtown (http://www.exploreasheville.com/listings/Early-Girl-Eatery/435/default/) and the Tupelo Honey Cafe (great cookbook, too!).
