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. The east side does have potential...and I have always thought Washington Scare should become an outlet mall. Anyone remember how popular Eastgate was? Well, Indy has no outlet malls, we have to go to Edinburgh for the deep discounts and I don't understand why. Jim is right. We need a few good eastsiders interested in actually making some noise and trying to change the commerce, culture and stereotypes of the East side. Irvington is very progressive and making great strides, why can't the far east side ride on their coat tails to make some changes?

    2. Boston.com has an article from 2010 where they talk about how Interactions moved to Massachusetts in the year prior. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2010/07/interactions_banks_63_million.html The article includes a link back to that Inside Indiana Business press release I linked to earlier, snarkily noting, "Guess this 2006 plan to create 200-plus new jobs in Indiana didn't exactly work out."

    3. I live on the east side and I have read all your comments. a local paper just did an article on Washington square mall with just as many comments and concerns. I am not sure if they are still around, but there was an east side coalition with good intentions to do good things on the east side. And there is a facebook post that called my eastside indy with many old members of the eastside who voice concerns about the east side of the city. We need to come together and not just complain and moan, but come up with actual concrete solutions, because what Dal said is very very true- the eastside could be a goldmine in the right hands. But if anyone is going damn, and change things, it is us eastside residents

    4. Please go back re-read your economics text book and the fine print on the February 2014 CBO report. A minimum wage increase has never resulted in a net job loss...

    5. The GOP at the Statehouse is more interested in PR to keep their majority, than using it to get anything good actually done. The State continues its downward spiral.
