Pancake house 225pxLincoln Square Pancake House opened earlier this month in 5,150 square feet at 2330 N. Meridian St. in the former home of a furniture shop next to Mercedes Benz of Indianapolis. The restaurant, led by father-son owners George and Chris Katris, now boasts eight central Indiana locations.

Dunkin Donuts has filed plans to renovate the building at 2361 Broad Ripple Ave. formerly occupied by Arthur Murray Dance Studio. Dunkin also has plans for stores at 8942 E. 96th St. in Fishers and on Michigan Road in Carmel.

Taverna 1850 is set to open next month in 5,000 square feet at 1850 Broad Ripple Ave., formerly home to longtime occupant Khoury’s Restaurant. Taverna is a new concept from Michael Griswold, a restaurant veteran who spent time at The Glass Chimney, a fine-dining staple along Old Meridian Street in Carmel that closed in 2011.

Agave Bar and Grill opened in 2,643 square feet at 31 E. Main St. in Carmel in the space formerly occupied by Sonata Cafe, which closed last month.

Al Basha is opening in ground-level retail space at The Avenue apartment building on Indiana Avenue. The local Mediterranean restaurant has an existing location in Fishers.

Chick-fil-A is remodeling its Circle Centre Mall location within the food court and has temporarily closed it.

Blue Crew Sports Grill at 7035 E. 96th St. appears to have closed for the last time. The Indianapolis Colts-themed restaurant had shut its doors temporarily twice before as owner Randy Collins struggled to pay rent and taxes. Colts owner Jim Irsay threw Collins a lifeline in May by paying four months’ rent, but it apparently wasn’t enough to save the restaurant.

  • Crepe Guys?
    Any update on The Crepe Guys in Castleton? Paper covers all the windows and no updates on the web.

      Their facebook page said another month, or September.
    • Good luck to Lincoln Sq.
      As a former Windridge Condos restaurant I can vouch for the great the Lincoln Sq. location at 56th & Emerson. Very large menu and good service. What makes the positive difference is the consistently friendly staff both at the front counter and wait staff. We can only hope this concept is also in place on N. Meridian. What a wonderful addition to the area...I can hardly wait to have a location close to me again.
    • Yats on Mass?
      Any news about the Yats reopening on Mass Ave?

    2. My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via

    4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

    5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
