Rhubarb le Restaurant
Modern French fine dining restaurant with conceptual seasonal plates lands on Duxton Hill
It's not particularly trendy, but Rhubarb Le Restaurant has had a loyal following every since it first threw open its doors over a year ago. It's easy to see why: the lovechild of French dining temply Au Petit Salut alums Chef Paul Longworth and manager Jerome Desfonds, this classy dove gray and white space serves up refined and seasonal French food in its open-plan kitchen. No gimmicks here, just solid food and some interesting ingredients. The a la carte menu has dishes like Obsiblue prawn tartare with seaweed, pomelo and Oscietra caviar, and their signature pigeon breast and leg confit with rhubarb and rose puree. There are lunch and dinner degustations, too.
The buzz: Duxton Hill is now home to a fine dining French restaurant run by famed Au Petit Salut’s old head chef Paul Longworth and manager Jerome Desfonds.
