Asheville - Bouchon - east Asheville (restaurant with terrian)Edit
- Bouchon is a very nice French restarant/creperie in downtown Asheville.
- As of summer 2016 Bouchon owner Michel Baudouin is planning to build a second location of his flagship French bistro in the former Fellowship Freewill Baptist Church in East Asheville, at 184 New Haw Creek Road in the neighborhood of Haw Creek. He has big plans for the space, including gardens and a petanque court. There will be plenty of outdoor space for petanque. “I play with a bunch of buddies every Friday afternoon, and we needed more courts,” Baudouin said, laughing. If plans are approved, the second location of Bouchon should open spring 2017, after renovations to remove a steeple and fashion the exterior of the building and landscaping after a French farmhouse.
