While in Mobile on business, a coworker and I ventured away from downtown to True Midtown Kitchen. We walked from downtown, which I don't recommend at all. It's much farther than you'd think! Once we arrived, we were greeted by friendly staff and seated immediately. The menu contains many interesting spins on traditional southern dishes. For example, the soup of the day was broccoli soup ... with curry. It was absolutely delicious. My coworker had the shrimp and grits, which was an enormous portion. I had the soup and a salad with candies pecans and blue cheese. Both were excellent. We shared the cream cheese and pepper jelly appetizer, which comes with good ol' Saltine crackers. The wine selection was good. Overall, I was really happy with True Midtown Kitchen. For me, the biggest downside was that the menu had almost no choices for vegetarians. It ended up working fine with the soup and salad, but it would have been nice to have more choices. I'd recommend it. (But take a cab!)
