Wow---last I had heard (don't remember source), Regas was closed--glad I was wrong. And can't believe Magee's is still open. That was my favorite restaurant as a kid but I don't ever remember eating there with Dad...always was when it was just Mom and I. It was alot like a Waffle House.

I think the closing of Regas was in the blog late last year - November maybe. I, too, was sad to see it was closing. I ate there several times - going to or from Asheville.

I'm assuming they were bought by somebody and reopened. When I clicked on Reservations, I got a message about Open Table will be taking them beginning "soon".
