“I am a child of the South, so telling stories is what I like to do. Crafting cocktails is an extension of those aspects of my life,” says bartender Alan Walter of Iris.
It is interesting, but not unexpected, that our Best New Restaurant of two years ago, 2006, continues to adhere to a standard where even the bar service attracts attention and praise. Chef Ian Schnoebelen and Maître d’ Laurie Casebonne, proprietors, have extended their commitment to innovation and quality all the way to the bar.”
