In 1996 a handful of individuals skilfully carved out a culinary events enterprise, turning heads with flare and creativity. The focus, then and now, has always been to create delicious, innovative food and present it beautifully. The ten years that followed saw unrivalled success and growth in the luxury events business. In 2008 rhubarb branched out, adding restaurant locations to its impressive portfolio. This began with restaurant ventures at Heathrow Airport and expanded to iconic London locations such as Royal Albert Hall and most recently, Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street.
