Welcome to Front & Center, a series highlighting front of the house professionals in Atlanta restaurants. Right now, Exploring Atlanta and ATL Events's Wendy writes about Kellie Herron, a server at Lure:
I first met Kellie when she was working at one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants, La Tavola, an intimate neighborhood Italian restaurant in Virginia Highlands. After several years working there, she's recently moved to Fifth Group's latest concept— Lure in Midtown. Kellie is an amazing server with a fantastic attitude and I always ask to be seated in her section. She has a great knowledge of the restaurant's offerings and always has the best food and wine recommendations. Plus, she's genuinely nice and you feel like friends even after just an hour of meeting. In order to be a great restaurant, you need two things: amazing food and flawless service. The chef and their team in the kitchen can help with the first, but it's people like Kellie and a great FOH experience that keep you coming back again and again.
