Pancake house 225pxLincoln Square Pancake House opened earlier this month in 5,150 square feet at 2330 N. Meridian St. in the former home of a furniture shop next to Mercedes Benz of Indianapolis. The restaurant, led by father-son owners George and Chris Katris, now boasts eight central Indiana locations.

Dunkin Donuts has filed plans to renovate the building at 2361 Broad Ripple Ave. formerly occupied by Arthur Murray Dance Studio. Dunkin also has plans for stores at 8942 E. 96th St. in Fishers and on Michigan Road in Carmel.

Taverna 1850 is set to open next month in 5,000 square feet at 1850 Broad Ripple Ave., formerly home to longtime occupant Khoury’s Restaurant. Taverna is a new concept from Michael Griswold, a restaurant veteran who spent time at The Glass Chimney, a fine-dining staple along Old Meridian Street in Carmel that closed in 2011.

Agave Bar and Grill opened in 2,643 square feet at 31 E. Main St. in Carmel in the space formerly occupied by Sonata Cafe, which closed last month.

Al Basha is opening in ground-level retail space at The Avenue apartment building on Indiana Avenue. The local Mediterranean restaurant has an existing location in Fishers.

Chick-fil-A is remodeling its Circle Centre Mall location within the food court and has temporarily closed it.

Blue Crew Sports Grill at 7035 E. 96th St. appears to have closed for the last time. The Indianapolis Colts-themed restaurant had shut its doors temporarily twice before as owner Randy Collins struggled to pay rent and taxes. Colts owner Jim Irsay threw Collins a lifeline in May by paying four months’ rent, but it apparently wasn’t enough to save the restaurant.

  • Crepe Guys?
    Any update on The Crepe Guys in Castleton? Paper covers all the windows and no updates on the web.

      Their facebook page said another month, or September.
    • Good luck to Lincoln Sq.
      As a former Windridge Condos restaurant I can vouch for the great the Lincoln Sq. location at 56th & Emerson. Very large menu and good service. What makes the positive difference is the consistently friendly staff both at the front counter and wait staff. We can only hope this concept is also in place on N. Meridian. What a wonderful addition to the area...I can hardly wait to have a location close to me again.
    • Yats on Mass?
      Any news about the Yats reopening on Mass Ave?

    5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
