38 E. Washington St.
  • A new lunch spot called Nia's Deli is on track to open next week in a building at 38 E. Washington St. (shown here) that burned in 2007. The space also will feature a convenience store with bottled drinks, snacks and toiletries. The restaurant is named after the owner's seven-year-old daughter.

  • A former Bennigan's restaurant in Fishers that changed to Hot Shotz has a new name again. The 2,600-square-foot restaurant attached to the Holiday Inn along I-69 now is known as 97th Landing. The owner and chef still is Robert Winckler, but the restaurant now features hand-cut steaks and seafood in addition to smoked wings & ribs, along with a Friday seafood and prime rib buffet and a $5.99 lunch menu.

    • Cory,

      I saw some men looking around the old Gabriel's Cafe in the Chamber of Commerce building. Any news if something new is going in that spot?
    • Well that's two vacant store fronts gone (first taste of tango and now Nia). Hopefully this can be sustained and the other blight gets filled in.
    • Yay to the Deli!
    • The independent convenience type store and deli is something that is desperately needed downtown. Good luck to both stores! :)
    • I am glad that business is slowly coming into that side of Washington. I would like to see the owners of those buildings fix the facades. The one that Nia's is going into would look good restored to its 1950's look. The Taste of Tango building needs it's 1800's look redone. The others could be restored to their original look, but not sure if that is feasible.
    • I was peeking in the windows of this place on Friday and it looks nice inside.
    • I'm glad to see 'any' positive commercial movement in the old city limits. Unfortunately, most new this/that come from places like the former Bennigans up in Fishers, Carmel, Greenwood. Think on this. Outside of downtown, the ONLY INDIANAPOLIS upscale retail left in the city limits is in Castleton. City-County folks are way over due in enticing retail developers, large and small. For instance; Five year abatement for any/all approved development from Alabama east to Rural along Washington Steet. (6/22/09 Dow 4880)
    • I noticed work in the building next to Nia's yesterday. Any idea what is going on there?
    • I noticed work going on there as well; curious....
    • I would say that Keystone has market on upscale retail in Indianapolis.......not Castleton.
    • If you are wanting to consider retail on the scale of Castleton, isn't the Trader's Point area on NW side in Marion County? Keystone is definitely more upscale than Castleton.
    • Ate at the 97th Landing with my wife and children last Friday night. Food was GREAT & beer selections incredible. My wife and I had the lobster & with shrimp scampi. Moreover, they're promoting kids eat free off the kids menu...We'll be back. Thanks for the info
    • 97th landing seems to be closed. there is a sign on the door stating that it is closed for remodel to become a banquet center for the hotel across the street.

    1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

    2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

    3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

    4. Exciting times in Carmel.

    5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
