Known For

American

Restaurant Iris specializes in French-Creole cuisine that showcases local and seasonal ingredients, and because of this (and the size -- there are only 13 tables), Kelly English's crown jewel is one of the busiest restaurants in town. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic, and the food is decadent and filling. The menu changes with the seasons, but mainstays like Rod Bailey's Raviolo and the "Surf and Turf" of New York Strip (it's stuffed with fried oysters and blue cheese) are bucket list material.
