  • 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. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
