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. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

    2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

    3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

    4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

    5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
