Iris family


Restaurant Iris is the creation of celebrated Chef Kelly English, but it's the Iris team that brings his vision to life daily. 


Kelly English


Kelly really likes cooking and running restaurants. He wouldn't want to do anything else.

Patrick Gilbert

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.


Jeannie BOYD

executive office administrator

Jeannie runs the office and keeps Kelly’s head on straight...we aren’t sure which is a bigger challenge. 


Candice BIGGS

catering director

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.
