Restaurant Iris is a much anticipated new restaurant that is set to open in the old La Tourelle space on Monroe. Chef Kelly English previously worked for the James Beard award winning chef John Besh in New Orleans. Chef English is very passionate about local, fresh ingredients & presents them in a unique & delicious way. He also promises to offer Southern cheeses from dairies south of the Mason-Dixon. The wine list will be small & unique with high-quality selections from boutique producers. As a kick off event, Ron Lachini of Lachini Vineyards will be pouring his wines to pair with Chef Kelly English's delectable cuisine on Monday March 24th. Cocktails begin at 6:00 p.m. Cost to attend is $60 per person plus tax & gratuity.
