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.

      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?

    1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

    3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
