Chris Rainosek: Chef/Owner
Meet our head chef and owner, Chris Rainosek. Born and raised right here in Mobile, AL, his mom had him cooking in their kitchen from a young age. After graduating from McGill-Toolen and the University of Alabama, he pursued his passion of cooking at the premier Culinary School of the Rockies in Boulder, Colorado. In 2006, he returned to Mobile and turned the restaurant scene upside down.
He created the menu at Dauphin Street Taqueria, featuring authentic Mexican cuisine. He is the head chef at The Wash House in Fairhope and the owner and head chef of his own The Noble South. He is passionate about creating beautiful, tasty food that the consumer knows is fresh and local. The Noble South is a true farm-to-table restaurant that uses only the freshest ingredients from local farmers so the menu is ever-changing.
Josh Lear: Chef de Cuisine
Josh Lear is our chef de cuisine here at The Noble South. Close to 15 years ago, Josh got his start in what he likes to call “fry kitchens.” There he was serving up all versions of southern and cajun cuisine just north of here where he grew up. Since then he’s lived in Nashville and Mobile working under several chefs with varied backgrounds from Lebanese to Argentinian. Josh’s most recent position was executive chef at Pour Baby Wine Bar before joining our team in 2016. Josh and Chris are responsible for all of the food menus here at the restaurant and they love to challenge each other and be as creative as possible.
