Fodor's Expert Review Rhubarb

$$$$ Downtown Asheville Eclectic

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, in a setting that is a charming mix of rusticity and utilitarianism. Hyperimaginative chef-owner John Fleer, a multiple James Beard Award finalist, relishes the unusual, such as rabbit-leek rillettes, octopus salad, and lobster corn dogs. Rhubarb has a little bakery and café, the Bru, around the corner at 10 South Lexington Street. Chef Fleer also operates the Benne on Eagle soul food restaurant at 35 Eagle Street, which mixes traditional Appalachian and Lowcountry cooking.
