Long recognized as a hangout for John Herbert Dillinger, The Gaslight Inn is said to be haunted by many a spirit. Stop by for a Paranormal 911 event or visit the Comedy Hideout.
Indy’s first craft donut shop was a huge hit from the first day, and with good reason. These guys turn out creative, flavorful donuts with combinations of maple and bacon, French toast, cookies ‘n’ cream, mocha, and so many, many more. These are definitely single-donut-only kind of pastries, with fillings of custard and jelly. They’re also a little pricier than your average donut shop, but that shouldn’t sway you from giving them a try.
This place even looks like a New York-style pizzeria. Situated just off the Circle it is a favorite for people of all walks of life Downtown and is usually packed during lunchtime. Opened in 1990 by Neapolitan immigrant Giorgio Migliaccio, the place serves up two styles, New York Neapolitan (New York-style) and the thicker Sicilian-style. Though they only have a few options, they do them to perfection.
Chef Christopher Ely and his staff have impeccable taste, and you are guaranteed to find a new beer or wine option every visit that pairs well with that sexy charcuterie we love so much. The notorious Bacon of the Month Club is the perfect gift idea (four pounds of bacon in four months for $69) and includes a T-shirt, recipe featuring the month’s bacon and Deli Tales book. We recommend gifting that with a bottle of Stone’s Sublimely Self Righteous (22 ounces, $7.75) or Founder’s Breakfast Stout (four 12-ounce bottles, $12.25). If you’re in recovery mode, order up a sandwich piled with Smoking Goose meats and eat that bad boy in three bites.
The Groovy Guys Fries truck’s motto is “Peace, Love, and Fry Grease,” but these are not the fries you covered in ketchup during your greasy spoon days. They are a fresher type of spud, served with a variety of toppings and, in one case, not even fried, but baked. “We keep experimenting and try to have a variety of options to suit different moods,” says Joe Reeves, the truck’s manager, and these variations on the common fry are definitely fun. Try the Philly Cheesesteak fries, the Sweet Potato Fries with Sweet and Salty Whipped Cream Cheese dip, or the Pizza Fries.
