As a wannabe foodie, I read Indianapolis Star writer Jolene Ketzenberger's recent "A Taste of Indy" feature with great interest.
Her in-no-particular-order list of 50 local restaurants worth trying is a great representation of the city's culinary past, present and future.
It didn't shock me at all to learn that Jolene had trouble limiting herself to 50 entries, but I was surprised that so few of them are located north of 96th Street. By my count, just four of the eateries on the list are in the northern 'burbs—and three of those (Bazbeaux, Shapiro's and Yats) are part of local chains. Chef Neal Brown's Pizzology in Carmel is the lone exception.
So what do you think, North of 96thers? What local restaurants would make your destination-dining list?
