Irene's Prepares for Spring Launch

A former Jaguar shop transforms into a haven of hospitality.

Construction on Irene’s, the forthcoming New American concept from ELM Group (Italic, Easy Tiger, Arro), continues apace. Once it opens, diners can expect homey breakfasts of toast and cinnamon rolls; soups, salads, and sandwiches for lunch; Blue Plate specials for dinner; and hip cocktails, local beers, and boozy punch. While chef Andrew Curren and partners had hoped for a late 2015 opening, it is now looking like it will debut sometime in March or April. Check out the progress with these plywood photos.
