A Chicago-based upscale breakfast restaurant is coming to CityWay.

Yolk has signed a lease to occupy 4,410 square feet in the downtown mixed-use development at Delaware and South streets, and is expected to open in the summer.

Owner Taki Kastanis opened his first Yolk in Chicago in 2006 and now has four locations in the Windy City.

The CityWay location will be Yolk’s first outside of Chicago.

At CityWay, developed by Indianapolis-based Buckingham Cos., Yolk joins Cerulean, Qdoba and Orange Leaf as food-related retail tenants.

Yolk will occupy space just east of The Alexander hotel, with its storefront facing south toward the Eli Lilly and Co. campus.

The restaurant will be open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends.

Yolk’s menu includes five-egg omelets, eggs benedict, and specialty skillets and frittatas, in addition to a variety of pancakes and waffles.

  • Market Table?
    What does this mean for Market Table, their existing weekend breakfast place (which is utterly exceptional and the best brunch in the city)?
  • Well...
    ... the last time I was in Market Table for Brunch, as attentive as the staff was, almost ALL of the "hot" food items we tried were warm at best and many of them were obviously past their time. So, what it will HOPEFULLY mean for Market Table is a little competition to keep them on their heels. As of my most recent visit it was good enough but FAR from the best brunch in the city.
  • Yolk
    I've been to Yolk in Chicago. The food is good but not fancy. I imagine this location will do well with the Lilly, Anthem and Farm Bureau folks who like to have breakfast meetings.
  • Add it to the list!
    2014 is off to a bang with exciting new downtown additions - add Yolk to the list! I've had Yolk several times in Chicago and have been extremely pleased. Glad to hear that this is going into the empty space at CityWay as well. The more we can beef up that area, the better.
  • Great for downtown!....
    I lived in Chicago for 1.5 years and surprisingly never heard of this place but I'm glad to see it coming to downtown! These additions are going to do well to increase attraction to the area. With that being said, at what point do communities outside of downtown get some welcomed additions? Broad Ripple is doing great and will continue to get better as long as a few people quit with their nonsensical whining about new development. But other areas such as Lawrence have plenty of space for infill. Heck, there's a large open building space for lease right off of 56th and Post Road. What needs to be done to make areas outside of downtown and Broad Ripple more attractive to development? I have an idea of what could help, but I'm not for sure if it will ever happen.

Bravo!_____NBCSN is available in almost 2 MILLION more homes than just a few years ago, but Indycar STILL gets less total viewers than it did just a few years ago when NBC took over Versus. Attendance and ratings cratered with the end of season races (just when the title battle got "interesting" HAH!__________And now...new race in Basilia, where Miles celebrated the "rich history" of Indycar racing there.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
