executive beverage director
welcome to restaurant iris
in April of 2008, restaurant iris opened it's doors in midtown memphis as the lifelong dream of our chef and proprietor Kelly English and along with an amazing team achieved a special relationship with our community and helped usher in a new era of restaurant culture, along with our colleagues and friends in our town and industry. Our goal is to know not just how but why food ended up on a table and where and who it came from.
In 2018 we have taken a new look at who we are as a team and our collective vision of what restaurant iris is and should be. With a completely new lens through which we view our charge, we are excited to bring you restaurant iris, brand new again.
