Roux Barb - Knoxville Eats

Despite the clever name Roux Barb can proudly boast it is THE place to eat in Knoxville when you are tired of pig burgers and chain restaurants. YEEEss, it's pricey but anything would be after eating at P.F Changs and Bravo. For the money you will get thoughtful, beautiful masterly crafted food. The name Roux Barb sums it up: high/low country Southern Food. Try cheese biscuits and watermellon chutney...and the watermellon was as vibrantly colorful as if it had just been cracked opn on the picnic table. The food is seasonable (blackberries and goat cheese salad) so the menu changes with the solstice (not East Tennessee weather...) Tucked next to the traintracks on North Shore and Kingston Pike, it's tiny and there's a smoke house in the back, reservations are strongly recommended. Yay!
