  • 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. Now if he'd just stay there...

  2. Daniel - what about the many US citizens who do NOT follow what the Bible teaches? The Hindus, Jews, Muslims and others who are all American citizens entitled to all rights as Americans?? This issue has NOTHING to do with "What the Bible says..." Keep all Churches separate from State! Pence's ongoing idiocy continues to make Indiana look like a backwards, homophobic state in the eyes of our nation. Can't we move on to bigger issues - like educating our kids?

  3. 1. IBJ should link to the referenced report. We are in the age of electronic media...not sharing information is lazy. Here is a link http://www.in.gov/gov/files/Blue_Ribbon_Panel_Report_July_9_2014.pdf 2. The article should provide more clarity about the make-up of this panel. The commenters are making this item out to be partisan, it does not appear the panel is partisan. Here is a list of the panel which appears to be balanced with different SME to add different perspectives http://www.in.gov/activecalendar/EventList.aspx?view=EventDetails&eventidn=138116?formation_id=189603 3. It suggests a by-pass, I do not see where this report suggests another "loop". 4. Henry, based on your kneejerk reaction, we would be better off if you moved to another state unless your post was meant as sarcasm in which case I say Well Done. 5. The article and report actually indicates need to improve rail and port infrastructure in direct contradiction to Shayla commentary. Specifically, recommendation is to consider passenger rail projects... 6. People have a voice with their elected officials. These are suggestions and do not represent "crony capitalism", etc. The report needs to be analyzed and the legislature can decide on priorities and spending. Don't like it, then vote in a new legislature but quit artificially creating issues where there are none! People need to sift through the politics and provide constructive criticism to the process rather than making uninformed comments in a public forum based on misinformation. IBJ should work harder to correct the record in these forums when blatant errors or misrepresentations are made.

  4. Joe ... Marriage is defined in the Bible ... it is mentioned in the Bible often. Marriage is not mentioned once in the US or Indiana Constitution ...

  5. Daniel - Educate me please: what does the Bible have to do with laws? If the government wasn't in the business of marriage to begin with, then it wouldn't have to "define" marriage at all. Marriage could be left as a personal, religious, or otherwise unregulated action, with no ties to taxes, legal status, etc. Then people could marry whomever they want, and all this silliness would go away. Remember to vote Libertarian in November.
