Irene's Cuisine

New Orleans

Creole Italian is a specific sub-genre originating in New Orleans after Italians started emigrating here in the 19th century. The red sauce found in most Italian-American eateries is less prevalent here, where fresh Gulf seafood preparations and creole-French flavor profiles attain more prominence on the menu. The upscale restaurant has a homey dining room, complete with a piano bar.
