The San Antonio Spurs are in Memphis with a 2-0 series lead and all the momentum in their series with the Memphis Grizzlies. Spurs star point guard Tony Parker wanted a bite to eat, and headed to the Restaurant Iris,which is run by acclaimed chef Kelly English. Parker is an all NBA point, a food connoisseur and now he can relate to the many people who haven’t been able to get into a restaurant after being turned away from Iris according to the Big Lead. Head chef Kelly English then tried to justify why Parker was turned away from a restaurant in the rival city, and then tried to explain to the world that it wasn’t done on purpose. Iris coincidently doesn’t have any tables available for Parker until after the series returns back to San Antonio. The restaurant seeing that a storm was brewing, released a statement on the treatment given to Parker. At Restaurant Iris we pride ourselves on the service we provide to our guests. From the moment you make a reservation, to when you walk out of our door, it’s our job to ensure you experience both incredible food and service. That experience begins with a reservation. Due to the size of our restaurant, there is currently a two week delay for a weekend reservation. We would not cancel a reservation that a guest made-and waited two weeks for- in order to make room for someone else without a reservation- celebrity or not. We respect our guests and their time, and appreciate their choice to dine with us.
