Irene’s doesn’t fit into one category - it’s a place where you could eat brunch, or dinner, or something kind of healthy, or just drink. When most restaurants try to be everything to everyone, they end up feeling like a schizophrenic off their meds. But at Irene’s, it works. That said, while the food is solid, we like Irene’s best for a morning toast and coffee, or an afternoon cocktail and a snack. The overall atmosphere lends itself better to hanging than it does for full-on meals.
