If ever you wonder if there is a benevolent force in the universe that wants us to be happy, remember that St. Elmo exists in our fair city. Once in a lifetime, every Indy resident owes it to themselves to indulge in the dry-aged, marbled perfection that comes to the table perfectly grilled and rested. This is the classic steakhouse, with white-glove-level service, stiff martinis, and lots of suited politicos and executives milling about. During the Super Bowl, it became the favored hangout for the who’s-who in town for the big game, and continues to be a huge draw for steak lovers and power players alike.
