A place in Asheville, North Carolina has just won the James Beard award for best restaurant in America. It's called Chai Pani, and serves Indian street food. The menu looks amazing, prices are reasonable, and it's only 372 miles from my house. That's a six hour road trip.
You have to wonder though, after winning this award, if you could even get a seat at the table. Oh well, it's going to be a long hot summer before I fly to Seattle in the middle of September, anything could happen!
