Cúrate – Heirloom Hospitality Group’s lively full-service restaurant brings diners the best of Spanish food and wine with fabulous locally sourced ingredients.
The cuisine at Cúrate is first and foremost traditional Spanish. From jamón Ibérico to croquetas de pollo to flan with caramel sauce, those who have traveled to Spain will instantly be transported back to one of the lively tapas bars beloved throughout the country, one plate at a time.
Cúrate’s authentic Spanish menu was crafted by Chef Katie Button, an alumna of Ferran Adria’s critically acclaimed restaurant, elBulli, who spent many years living and cooking in Spain.
In Spanish, Cúrate, means ‘cure yourself.’ Whether guests are looking for a fun-filled evening out with friends or a quick bite before or after one of Asheville’s many art or music productions, Cúrate is the place to go to take care of yourself, by letting us take care of you.
Established in 2008.
Heirloom Hospitality Group was created in 2008 when a mother and daughter from New York City decided to fulfill their dream of opening a restaurant. What started as general conversation began to solidify into a concrete description of the atmosphere, style, type of food, and location of a real feasible restaurant. The location was the easiest. On many drives throughout the eastern United States, specifically North Carolina, we fell in love with Asheville, NC. Asheville is a beautiful haven in the Blue Ridge Mountains with friendly open-minded people. It immediately seemed like a place that we could easily call home.
The concept of our restaurant reflects the Asheville community. We envision a restaurant that focuses on supporting local farmers and environmentally sustainable practices while introducing some products from like-minded entrepreneurs around the world.
Meet the Business Owner
Chef Katie B.
Chef Button draws her inspiration from an unconventional path that began in a science laboratory and led her to the kitchen. Now, as executive chef for Cúrate bar de tapas and its around-the-corner nightclub neighbor, Nightbell in Asheville, North Carolina, she inspires others to take the road less traveled.
After earning a BioMaster’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from L’Ecole Centrale in Paris and before entering a Neurosciences PhD program, she took a detour. That path included jobs in José Andrés’ restaurants in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, CA; work with Chef Johnny Iuzzini at Jean Georges in New York; and ultimately a seven-month internship in the kitchen of elBulli, Ferran Adrià’s world-renowned Spanish restaurant. It is this unique world view that infuses Chef Button’s creations at Cúrate, where her work has earned national acclaim for its Spanish authenticity and creativity, and at Nightbell, which opened in February 2014.
