  • Guests got a look at the "new" Restaurant Iris at a soft opening Aug. 17.
Restaurant Iris opened its door to invited guests for a soft opening, Friday, August 17th. They got the first look at the re-imagined Midtown restaurant, which has a new look and a new menu.

Guests encounter a new bar area as they enter the restaurant, which has a sleek, elegant feel. Art depicting chefs at work adorn the walls. A large portrait of chef/owner Kelly English hangs on one wall in the front dining room.

As English said earlier, the restaurant is "

going to feel a little different. A little more modern than you remember it. Less walls in the space. I feel like we’re staying exactly true to ourselves by changing. It’s going to be the same focus of what we’ve always done: to tell the story of who we are. Just a little more modern approach to it.”
