Lunch at Rhubarb - Delish!

Rhubarb and it's deservedly admired chef, John Fleere, have created yet another wonderful option for fine dining in downtown Asheville. If you've visited Asheville in the past few years, you already know that the popular restaurants are getting increasingly difficult to spontaneously stroll in and get a table. Rhubarb is no exception. However, we had no problem getting a table for lunch, so my daughter, Hannah, and I decided to check it out. The menu is so creative and alluring, but not in a fussy, over the top way, and we settled on a farmer's market salad and their hamburger with Benton's bacon. I felt that both were about as good as it can get - the salad had an assortment of roasted and raw vegetables with a parsnip puree and a creamy, fresh green dressing (I can't remember exactly what it had in it, but it was perfect). The burger had everything you'd want - soft bun with crispy edges, flavorful burger, not too huge, and full of flavor. The food was fantastic, and I really love the decor.  Below are a few shots so you can see for yourself.
