During the Wizard World convention, we asked a number of New Orleans' residents about their favorite restaurant. Irene's (539 St. Philip Street) was mentioned a number of times so on our last evening, we decided to check it out - a 5 out of 5, a 10 out of 10!
We ate in the small, casual main dining room. Doug ordered the house specialty - lasagna; I ordered pompano. Both entrees were delicious!!! Wait staff was very friendly.
A back room "overflow" dining room.
After dinner we walked down St. Philip Street toward the French Market, passing by Joanie on the Pony, a copy of an 1899 statue in Paris by Emmanuel Fremiet.
