La Bodega by Curate temporarily closes

The autumn season is a time for change and new beginnings.

An Asheville restaurant group temporarily closes to begin an extensive renovation project, a contemporary mercantile expands to another local neighborhood, offering a wider selection of regional specialty eats and treats, and a one of the city’s beverage companies asks customers to support restaurant industry workers seeking sobriety with each purchase of a can of peach lemonade.

La Bodega by Curate will be closed for renovations Nov. 1-22, 2021.

3-week closure

La Bodega by Curate is a café, Spanish market and wine bar that opened at 32 S. Lexington Ave. in Asheville in May 2020. It will be closed Nov. 1-22 for the first stage of a full renovation.

Patrons won’t see immediate changes once the venue reopens on Nov. 23, said Felix Meana, co-founder. Major changes will be evident by Spring 2022.
