2021 Restaurant Comeback


We all cried a little when Res Ipsa Cafe closed. And then we all danced for joy five months later when its entire team — from the exec chef to the staff on the floor — went south to the Bok Building to reincarnate Irwin’s, its gorgeous rooftop restaurant, as, basically, Res Ipsa II. Same handmade pasta. Same whole fish and agrodolce chicken. Better views.
