Restaurant Iris is the creation of celebrated Chef Kelly English, but it's the Iris team that brings his vision to life daily.
Kelly really likes cooking and running restaurants. He wouldn't want to do anything else.
executive chef- restaurant iris
Cam cooks food that only he could, rooted in the diversity of his family and his thirst for knowledge. Kelly is a huge fan of his cooking.
director of operations- restaurant iris
Pat brings an ethic and an experience to our team that makes all of us better. Plus he is really good looking. Email Pat for any onsite buyouts or offsite catering.
executive beverage director
Larin was part of the opening team at the second line and ran our first real bar program. Her palate is unique and her love of both cocktails and wine is unmatched.
executive office administrator
Jeannie runs the office and keeps Kelly’s head on straight...we aren’t sure which is a bigger challenge.
Candice came to us years ago and worked as a server at iris until taking on this role. She makes every event one she would want to attend and really enjoys a large salad.
general manager- fino’s on the hill
Often referred to as the "better brother," Todd has known Kelly longer than anyone. An avid hunter and outdoorsman, Todd has always had a love of our food systems.
general manager- the second line
Cliff keeps us all in order at the second line and really enjoys a day off when they come along. Cliff's vintage band shirts are actually vintage and never previously owned.
lead bartender- the second line
Sam mixes a great drink and crafts our beer list. When he isn't behind the bar you can find him behind a drum kit. He also likes hats.
catering kitchen manager
Jake runs our catering kitchen and once climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. Go ahead and Facebook stalk him...it is true.
