Around Austin - Irene's in Downtown Austin
Today, we decided to hit up the new (opened over Memorial Day) Irene's in downtown Austin. Irene's is located on West and 5th with PLENTY of street and nearby garage parking.
Immediately walking in, I got a cool modern eclectic vibe. The dark wood, modern lighting, polished concrete, and super sweet airplane window/siding artwork pulled together perfectly. They have a large front and back patio for dining. As well as a large bar and indoor non-bar seating. The walk-up window serves breakfast and coffee daily starting at 7:00 am.
These are by the same guys who've done 24 Diner, Italic, and Easy Tiger so we knew it would be awesome. I ordered the pulled chicken & avocado sandwich (yum) and my husband ordered the steak sandwich (double yum). The little one ate some of my Easy Tiger bread and the shells & cheese. And yes, they have high chairs! It was a big hit over all. We will definitely be back!
Welcome to the 'hood, Irene's; we're glad you're here!
