Battista's Best of Indy (Bluebeard) 

Editor's Pick

Sherry Battista is a lucky lady. As one of the owners of Farm-to-Fork winner Bluebeard, she gets to enjoy long afternoons in the courtyard and plenty of facetime with Abbi Merriss, who still sits at the top of the Indy chef pyramid. Not only are they about to open the highly-anticipated Amelia's Bakery, but they've recently expanded the restaurant to include a private dining room. You might not be surprised that Andrew Luck was one of the first to book the room for himself and his foodie friend. Sherry hopped on the horn with us to talk about her personal Best of Indy, and she has her own favorites when it comes to places to eat and relax around the city.

Favorite Pizza

Pasquales (Editor's note: Pasquale's is part of the Battista-owned empire of restaurants. That said, it is pretty delicious). It's old-style handmade pizza dough and old ovens. Mostly it's carry-out. It's really good.

Favorite outdoor space

Broad Ripple Hotel has a really nice veranda. So you can go there and get a bottle of wine or a glass of wine and a cheese plate and watch the joggers to by.

Great place for a cocktail

Pioneer. We went there recently and had a cocktail. It was nice. Those are all of our former employees.

Favorite spot in town where you are guaranteed to find a good bite

54th and College. When I can't figure out what to do, 54th and College has Twenty Tap, Fat Dan's, Yat's and Jazz Kitchen. They're all so good. There's always someone around there.

Favorite outdoor spot

I like Garfield Park and Brookside Park. They're both really underutilized. I really like to walk along the downtown canal at the Indiana State Museum, too.
