Are you ready for this? Mariza, the Italian-inspired restaurant from the Iris team? husband and wife combo Chef Ian Schnoebelen and Laurie Casebonne? opens this evening at 5 p.m. in the Rice Mill Lofts (2700 Chartres Street). The couple, who also live in the Bywater, went for a more casual approach to dining with their second restaurant. You won't find white table cloths here, but more of a laid back atmosphere where you can hang with your friends and gorge yourself on homemade pastas, salumi, and such. Also expect a craft cocktails and a new concept for the Bywater, a raw bar.
