Irene’s Cuisine to move 

Creole-Italian restaurant to move to Bienville Street in 2018

French Quarter restaurant Irene's Cuisine (539 St. Philip St., 504-529-8811) will move to a new home early next year, the restaurant announced this week.

  The Creole-Italian eatery will move seven blocks from its longtime home on St. Philip Street. The restaurant's new home, at 529 Bienville St., likely will open "in early 2018," according to a post on the restaurant's Facebook page.

  In 2015, reported that the Louisiana State Museum, which owns the building the restaurant occupies, would possibly force its tenant out after its 15-year lease expires in February 2018.

  Owner Irene DiPietro opened the Creole-Italian restaurant in 1993 with Tommy Andrade, who went on to open Tommy's Cuisine in the Warehouse District in 2003.
