I don’t want to take anything away from any of the restaurants in your article “Good Ol’ Northern Cooking” [“The Straight Dish,” July 5], but the discussion was incomplete without mentioning Marco’s Pizzeria. I am from Pennsylvania, and my fiancée is from New York. When we moved here, we loved everything about Asheville, but it didn’t feel like home until we tried Marco’s.
When our picky Northern families visit, Marco’s is always a crowd pleaser. It has all of the fresh flavors of a classic Northern meal, with one plus—at Marco’s, you get a warm reception and exceptional service. Now when we visit up North, we miss this “Southern” gem.
