Located just off the Monon in a building that long housed fitness studios and other offices, 10-01 attempts to recapture the past by offering comfort food with what they call "unique culinary twist." Ownership shifts since its inception and the addition of the cellar bar called "The Vault" have improved the original concept. Limited menu on Sundays.
Rated the best new brewery in Indiana in 2013, this young brewery is making a name for itself in no time at all. Located in Hammond, it's a bit of a hike, but it is well worth it to stop in for a beer or two in their unassuming tap room. it's a good thing gas prices are down, you'll be driving back time and again.
Eats and drinks at Sarah Fisher's Indoor Karting joint. 1911 = first 500 — get it?
1913 is housed in the downtown Omni, and while the restaurant prides itself on local and regional sources, some diners (including NUVO's Neil Charles) have found the service inconsistent. Neil's last review is admittedly a bit dated, so put this on our list for a revisit.
St. Elmo’s bar upstairs features the signature "Elmo Cola":
"Mix a glass-bottled coke or Diet coke with our exclusive “Infusion” made with Maker’s Mark® premium Kentucky Bourbon, imported Italian Luxardo Maraschino cherries and Madagascar Vanilla Beans." Well, OK. Oh, and if you’re trying to torch all the hair out of your nasal cavities, order up a shrimp cocktail. It’s painfully delicious.
Why are we including this brewpub that's waaayyyy north of Central Indiana — in fact, a place that's really part of Da Region? Have you ever heard of Dark Lord Day?
There are any number of reasons to love this Broad Ripple staple. The location is great, the staff is friendly and the food is always good. In particular, vegetarians and vegans will find plenty to eat at this charming and affordable Victorian home converted into a restaurant. The only thing that's changed in the past few decades? The address.
When Ambrosia vacated this space in Broad Ripple, we were a tad concerned. Ambrosia simply moved to new digs and made way for this craft burger joint with a craft beer selection to match. The fries are hand cut, the beef's excellent and specials include $7 burgers on Thursdays.
If you've got visitors in from the West Coast, and they're whining about how much they long for In-N-Out Burger, take 'em here. There's more on the menu at this place, but it's still a solid competitor to the Holy Grail of quick-service beef patties. You can "stylize" your burger with a range of combo toppings, from Thai to Texas. They offer dogs and chicken tenders as well, along with shakes and salads.
This colorful little strip-mall joint was purchased by a couple of regulars. Mostly a breakfast/lunch spot, they've expanded their hours for dinner three nights a week. Word is they've got 40 omelets. MMM. OMELETS.
Located in a strip mall on West 38th St., Indy’s longest-standing Ethiopian restaurant may not be much to look at, but inside you’ll find a menu offering a satisfying selection of dishes from one of the world’s most distinctive cuisines. Served on injera, the absorbent bread that’s used to sop up flavorful meat and vegetarian dishes that are eaten with the fingers, Abyssinia provides what amounts to some of the world’s most exotic comfort food.
This Mexican favorite serves high-end Mexican fare intended to introduce diners to a more subtle, yet intense array of flavors, while also supplying such traditional entrees as Chile Relleno ($13.50) and Enchiladas de Pollo. Some of the city’s best margaritas are also on offer. Adobo recognizes the merit of happy hour. It offers dollar Barbacoa de Res, tacos al pastor and fish tacos from 4-6 p.m. weekdays, along with plenty of daily drink specials. Also try samplings from the Ceviche bar.
They've got pizza and "Hermanaki Wings" — thanks, Herman? — and they tell us: "Before the endless number of TVs, projections screens, patio, bands and tripling in size the Ale was know for its pizza, great beer selection, wings and great bar food. Today that tradition carries on. If you have never visited us you are invited to stop in and try our award winning menu."
A N. Shadeland staple since the late '80s, you can often find radio grunts crying in their beers at this joint — it's close to the stations on Shadeland and Fall Creek
Ah, our beloved Alley Cat. What can we say about an establishment that won the "Best Dive Bar" award from NUVO readers so many years in a row, we've nearly retired the jersey. A hole-in-the-wall to beat all hole-in-the-walls, you can't even get here without threading through Broad Ripple's back alleys. Cheap drinks, good music and lots of pool playing, the Cat is the best place in the city to be at last call for a variety of reasons-not the least of which is you usually don't have to go home alone.
