Pizzology logoNeal Brown's wildly popular gourmet pizza concept Pizzology is adding a second location to its original restaurant in Carmel. Pizzology is slated to take about half of the 8,000-square-foot former home of Cafe Nora in front of Target along 86th Street just west of Westfield Boulevard. The restaurant has secured a liquor license, is finalizing its lease and should be on track to open before the end of 2012. Real estate industry sources said locally based PK Partners has acquired the building and plans to remodel it to accommodate Pizzology and another tenant. Neal Brown declined to discuss the Nora site but said the plan is to grow Pizzology. "We're going to do a few more of these," he said.

  • Great Location!
    I'm glad to see this go in there.....easy access from Broad Ripple and 86th Street.
  • Pleased
    As a nearby resident and pizza lover, I am very pleased to learn of this operation coming to Nora Plaza. We will visit often.
  • Great news!
    This is excellent news! Very happy to learn this space soon will be filled.
  • Another Chain?
    Just what we need - another pizza chain!

    Just kidding, Neal Brown rocks!
    Creativity has rewards. Best of luck!
  • Excited!
    This makes me so incredibly happy. Pizzology is by far my favorite pizza in the world, so far :) However, it's quite a trek from our Meridian Kessler home. To have one closer to home makes me very excited - can't wait to see where else they expand!
  • Creative pizza
    I'm excited about the Nora location. Pizzology has proved it prepares really different pizza and is delicious!
  • Cafe Nora
    I still miss Cafe Nora...
    • cafe nora
      I miss Cafe Nora too!
    • What is the deal?
      I know the article says it will be open before the end of the year, but I live very close to this location and nothing has changed in the last 3 months. Are they still going to open up at this location?

    1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

    2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

    3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

    4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

    5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
