Irene’s, the soon-to-be latest restaurant from chef Andrew Curren and company, revealed its New American menu on a brand new website. The restaurant is still on track to open in May.

The bill of fare spans comfort foods like grilled cheese, meatball subs, pimento cheese, and sweet and savory toasts, including the requisite avocado one. Specials include the dinner-only steak and whiskey shot combination. Read on for the full sample menu below.

For drinks, there are musically-inclined cocktails like the sour Coney Island Baby with a mess of liquors and Coke. Sharable boozy punches come in three styles: rum, whiskey, and sangria. Beer, wine, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic coffees are available, too.

Look out for an expansive patio, breakfast counter window where pastries, coffee, and even cigarettes will be sold, and a piano. The ELM Restaurant Group is holding another job fair this week on Thursday and Friday, April 21 and 22.
