  • Chateau Thomas Winery plans to open a new tasting room and gift shop in Fishers. The winery already has tasting rooms at its Plainfield headquarters and in Nashville. The new location is slated to open next month in a strip center along 116th Street near Interstate 69. One of its new neighbors will be the Irish pub Fionn MacCool's.
  • Yuki Sushi and Thai has opened in the lifestyle component of Castleton Square Mall between Johnny Rockets and H&M. The new local restaurant took space vacated by the sandwich shop Spicy Pickle.
  • Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern, a Columbus, Ohio-based chain, has opened its first Indiana location at 1130 W. 86th St. The restaurant offers a wide menu ranging from fish and chips to loaded nachos, pastas to potstickers.
  • Ambrosia Centro is shaping up nicely with new signs and awnings on its new Maryland Street home, and a new wall-mural sign is up for Kilroy's Bar & Grill at 201 S. Meridian St. An earlier post on Ambrosia is here, and a post on Kilroy's is here.

  • Cory - don't forget about Tastings, the new wine bar at the Conrad. The set up is great! Opening day is quickly approaching!
  • ...speaking of Tastings. What's up with their logo? Looks like clip art. Surely an upscale place do better than this.
  • Next door to the Chateau Thomas Winery tasting room in Fishers is a coming soon sign for the Wild Ginger Restaurant. This restaurant is taking over the space formally used by the Spicy Pickle.
  • I heard from a manager at Buffalo Wings and Rings HQ (Cincy) that they have signed with investors to bring six of their restaurants (back) to Indy.
  • [No title]
    Thanks for reminding me, Morgan: What's the opening day? By the way, my original post on Tastings is here:

    (Sorry, I tried to make that a link, but our fancy new system won't allow it.)

    Dave and jtanzer: Thanks for the updates! Keep them coming!




  • The supposed location that Jack in the Box has been eying is now a grassy lot. The sale sign is also still up.
  • Ambrosia was just mediocre
    Went to Ambrosia for lunch this week. Not impressed. Service was slow which is surprising because there were hardly any patrons. Spaghetti was no better than Ragu...
  • Tastings
    Does anyone know if they are charging for tastings at the Conrad? I know and am disappointed Chateau Thomas has started charging for tastings with no compensation with purchase.
  • Thai?
    There wasn't any Thai food at Yuki Sushi at Castleton Mall this evening. I'm not sure where that came from. And, yes, the tastings at Tastings can get quite pricey.

  1. Again, Maria.... how much are YOU contributing? The man doesn't HAVE to give a red cent! What don't you get about that? And, I know this might actually require some actual "facts", but can you please point me to the parking garage that the city gave to him?

  2. Another internet tuff guy I see. And what would the basis of taking the person to jail? If they were drunk, yea. But if not, there would be no jailable offense. All these gestapo, Nazi, jackboots are running SCARED. When the SHTF in this country who's side are you going to be on? The citzens, or the establishment? Better make up your mind quick because it's not far off. I would rather be trying to make friends than enemies. But no worries my "friend", God will take care of you and your likes in good time. It tells us that in the bible. If you stand, support and help carry out the plans of evil rulers, you will NOT be spared the wrath of God. That simple. All you can do is repent now and ask God to forgive you.

  3. Yes, Ersal, thank you for donating a whole $75,000, while the city gives you a parking garage for free and is going to pay for a multi million dollar stadium for you. I'd be donating money too if I was on welfare.

  4. I live and work in Broad Ripple and agree 100% that the traffic is not a significant problem. It can be slow at some times, but hey...this is an urban area. As for the development itself...HOORAY. Office and retail development brings people during the day, something that our community needs much more of. Thank goodness people are finally waking up to take advantage of the serene White River views. The BRVA land us committee endorsed the project because they know how these kind of projects help offset the cries of "too many bars". Pray that this development, and the proposed major investment by Browning, move forward. And remember Good Earth, these will mean hundreds of daytime people - potential shoppers for your store.

  5. Under current, previous existing law, this new law would be unconstitutional. Not that supposedly having to have a driver's license to drive isn't in the first place.
