Fresh Rhubarb from Richter Farms

It’s Seattle Restaurant Week and for our special menu, one of our featured desserts is the Washington Apple/Rhubarb Cobbler. We source our crimson rhubarb from Richter Farms down in Puyallup. A few days ago our head Chef, Chris Bryant, toured the rhubarb fields with Tim Richter, the owner who works the farm with his father and son.

You can experiment this special ingredient with one of our tastefully prepared menu options: Rhubarb/Apple Pie, Seared Salmon with Rhubarb Gastrique and drink specials featuring Rhubarb (Rhubarb Shandy & Rhubarb Spritz).

In 1905 his Great Grandfather came out West from Minnesota looking to go to Alaska and get in on the Gold Rush. Apparently he didn’t find gold and in 1906 bought land in the Puyallup Valley. He cleared the land and began growing hops and raspberries. Five generations later the Richter family are farming the same property, growing green and red leaf lettuce, Romaine, green cabbage, napa cabbage, bok choy, cilantro, hot peppers, rhubarb, green beans, and beets.
