What’s Wowing Me Now

Food writer Jonathan Ammons lets us in on his favorite dish du jour.

The deviled egg at Nightbell: This is not your grandma’s deviled egg — an open eggshell filled with warm, whipped corn sabayon and Sunburst Trout Farm’s smoked gravlax and trout roe. It’s like a tiny soup that you finish in five bites, but they’ll be the best five bites you’ll have all month. Smoky, salty, creamy and easily one of my favorite amuse-bouche offerings in Asheville.
