Great Italian!

My wife and I ate at Irene's, a very atmospheric Italian restaurant, this past weekend. The setting was great and the food even better! There was a line of people waiting and it took us over an hour to get in, but it was worth the wait.

Irene's

One of the French Quarter treasures, hidden behind a tiny little door. The inside has a dark and delicate European charm with a labyrinth of different rooms. We only stayed for appetizers on our culinary tour, but the garlic mushroom…

Tips
  • House tradition forbids small-table reservations, so show up early (well before 7pm) or collect a group of five or more to guarantee a timely seating.
  • If you're in the mood for live music, jockey for a table in the cellar-themed dining room, where a piano player tickes the ivories most nights.
  • To say that the lighting at Irene's is muted would be a near-laughable understatement. If you can't read the menu, don't despair--all waiters carry pocket flashlights.
