Irene’s Cuisine

Italian in French Quarter

Irene’s is a romantic gem, tucked in a corner that's generally missed by travelers. Not that it's easy to miss, given the lovely scent of garlic emanating from this intimate Italian cavern. Irene's is Italian–French, really: pick from rosemary chicken, seared chops, pan-sautéed fish fillets and great pasta. Reservations aren't accepted and long waits are the norm.
