Located in downtown Asheville, Rhubarb is truly a one of a kind dining experience. Upon entering Rhubarb, you are greeted with an industrial setting blended with rustic décor. The soft lighting and warmth from the wooden fixtures and tables adds a familiar hospitality vibe to the otherwise fine dining experience. It’s a place meant to remind you of your own kitchen table where you gather with friends and family. The idea behind Rhubarb is one of celebration and family with goal of being the “it” place for special occasion celebrations, proposals, and good times within the community of Asheville. Rhubarb delivers on all accounts.

Their menu items are original in design and taste. From their Brown Sugar-Benne Popcorn to their Market Plate loaded with farro, market vegetables, parsnip humus, chapata bread, looking glass goat cheese, and mint green goddess dressing, you’ll be enticed to try new things and savor the delicious flavors that have been blended by the talented chef John Fleer and their pastry chef, Kaley Laird.

John Fleer’s unique take on food is inspired by the “culture of food” he experienced while in Venice. He is known for his ability to transform local ingredients into world-class dishes. This is evident in not only the presentation of his dishes, but also in the detailed flavors packed into every recipe.

Kaley Laird brings her own unique style to Rhubarb. She comes to Rhubarb with an extensive resume and as a classically trained French pastry chef it’s easy to see why her deserts and food has won her the recognition she rightfully deserves.

As if their everyday dining experience wasn’t impressive enough, they also offer a unique twist to family dinnertime. Every Sunday, guests have the option of reserving a place at their Family Tables where they are served a three-course meal presented family style. A local guest farmer hosts the weekly convivial community table. If you have a spare Sunday or are just on the look out for some decently priced fine dining with a unique flavor, Rhubarb’s is highly recommended.
