Fodor's Review

A regular on "top restaurants of the South" lists, Rhubarb brings a dose of creative cuisine and local sourcing to a prime location on Pack Square. Hyper-imaginative chef-owner John Fleer, a five-time James Beard Award Finalist, relishes the unusual, such as rabbit-leek rillettes, octopus salad, and lobster corn dogs. This is the place to challenge your palate and shake off the boring dinner cobwebs, so it goes without saying that as interesting as this farm-to-table menu is, it may not appeal to more conservative diners. The setting is a charming mix of rusticity and utilitarianism, with reclaimed wood tabletops, ceilings, and some walls, and accented with trendy unfinished old masonry and metal hanging lamps. Outdoor patio seating is available, but sometimes the Square's bustle and buskers may overwhelm. Rhubarb has a little bakery and café, The Bru, around the corner at 10 South Lexington Street.
