There is a training restaurant in Geneva, Switzerland, called Les Vieux Bois that the folks at Kitchen on George should take a field trip to visit. As other writers have said, Kitchen is a really good restaurant for Mobile, but those last two words are important. (I would've rated it "good," but there's no rating between "average" and "very good.") The food was tasty and inventive (grouper with fennel slaw, for example) and it was great to see locally sourced ingredients (like the Alabama goat cheese). The wine list had just enough variety to satisfy most needs. The service, however, was pretty sloppy. Maybe the training is only for the chefs; I don't know. Our waiter had not attended Wine Pouring 101, nor The Basics of Setting a Plate onto a Table. In Geneva, he'd have been made to re-serve everything. I'll probably go back for the food -- there are small plates as well as large plates, so lots to try -- but I'll be hoping that the service improves.
