Rhubarb is the chic restaurant located on the southwest corner of Pack Square in Asheville. The patio seating is a great place to catch all the happenings in downtown Asheville. You can actually grab a meatless meal, catch the sidewalk singers, the silent mimes, and any protests happening all from the patio. It is the perfect place to take an out-of-town guest to soak up the city while you eat a meatless meal. The inside is calm and beautiful, but the outside is glimpse into true Asheville and everything urban, busy, and fun about it.

I had a chance to stop in for lunch with Ayanna Dusenberry, the editor of the Asheville Grit. I feel so lucky to be a Grit writer and to have found a friend in her. Rhubarb is a great place to go for drinks and a small plate. They only had two vegan options, but the menu opened up significantly when it came to vegetarian options.

I ordered the Seared Squash. It was prepared with olives, farro and lentils. I had never heard of farro and our waiter was happy to give me a mini lesson. I also had a glass of Pinot Grigio, which is my favorite dinner wine. It was a great pairing, and I can honestly say that it was the best squash I have ever had. Plus, the plating was amazing.

Ayanna had the Pimento Grilled Cheese. She enjoyed her meal as well.

Our food was delivered hot and fast. The entrees were priced reasonably at the $10.00-$12.00 range, the service was amazing, and I am definitely looking forward to checking out their dinner menu with my family soon.
