Those hoping to dine at Kitchen on George this holiday season are out of luck. The eatery shuttered its doors Wednesday after news that Virginia College was closing all of its schools.
Virginia College included a culinary school that used Kitchen on George as an active lab for students to learn and practice their craft under professionals.
That means the professionals are also out of a job.
Today we spoke with Stephen Russell, the former manager. He said working at Kitchen on George was a special, family-like atmosphere and even while he’s searching for a job, he’s helping his former employees on the hunt.
It comes at a tough time Russell and his wife are expecting his second child next week.
We also chatted with neighbors who said they will dearly miss the neighborhood restaurant that held seven years of memories.
