1001 Broad Ripple Avenue

  • 10-01 food & drink, a new independent restaurant promising "Midwestern comfort food with a culinary twist", is scheduled to open in the spring at the southeast corner of Broad Ripple and Winthrop avenues. The restaurant, named for its 1001 Broad Ripple Ave. address, is taking 6,000 square feet and is being designed (rendering above) by Daugherty Tegarden + Partners. The partners are Natalie Wolfe, Jeff Cart and Mike Spalding.
  • The Sweet Life, a homegrown sweet shop serving cakes, cookies, chocolates, ice cream and more, is slated to take 2,100 square feet in a retail strip along Allisonville Road in Fishers. The shop replaces a 24-hour Snap Fitness location. Proprietor Corrie Case, an IU Kelley school graduate who has baked cakes as long as she can remember, hopes to open the shop in early April.
  • Bebop Pizza Kitchen, a homegrown carryout and delivery pizza shop, has opened at the southeast corner of 54th Street and College Avenue. The restaurant is a spinoff of The Jazz Kitchen, around the corner, and features some of the same menu items. Owner David Allee has pledged to give 5 percent of Bebop's sales to music education to help continue the city's jazz heritage.
  • Potbelly Sandwich Works is set to replace the former Quiznos sub shop on Monument Circle. The 1,873-square-foot space will be the chain's first location in Indianapolis. The nearest restaurant for the Chicago-based chain is West Lafayette.
  • Fast Burrito Mexican Grill is coming to the former home of Cafe O on the first floor of Chase Tower. Signs on the space announce the new restaurant, which appears to be homegrown. No word yet on an opening date.
  • Rally's has filed plans to build a new location near Southport Road and Emerson Avenue. The 1,066-square-foot restaurant is surrounded by other fast-food options including Arby's, Hardee's and Chick-fil-A. The Tampa, Fla.-based Checkers chain has about 20 Indianapolis-area Rally's restaurants.
  • McAlister's Deli is opening a new restaurant in an existing retail strip along State Road 135 a few blocks south of County Line Road. The 6,250-square-foot restaurant will be the Mississippi-based chain's 10th in central Indiana and first in Greenwood.
  • Yogurt Shoppe has filed plans to open in a Kroger-anchored strip center at State Road 135 and Fairview Road in Greenwood. The shop will take 1,200 square feet.
  • Subway is planning a 2,100-square-foot location along Ameriplex Parkway at 8420 Belfast Drive, near a Hampton Inn and Hilton Garden Inn.
  • Potbelly!
    Getting a Potbelly's downtown is huge. I eat their sandwiches almost every day in Chicago for lunch. Love that place.
    • It's Like Christmas!
      So happy to get a Potbelly's downtown! A former coworker actually looked into a franchise years ago, but didn't have the $$ to start one. Downtown is the perfect location. I hope they deliver too!
    • Bebop Pizza
      The wife and I had Bebop pizza last weekend. They deliver to SoBro but not to us in Butler Tarkington. Worth the drive for the pickup! Great pizza!
    • Ironic
      Good update. I like that a candy / ice cream place is replacing a 24 hour fitness location. Ha ha.
    • Potbelly
      Bummer that a chain sandwich shop is getting replaced by a chain sandwich shop. Would have loved to see a local restaurant open up in this spot.
    • So Excited
      Having a Potbelly in Indy makes me more excited than Jesse Spano on caffeine pills!
    • Potbelly Open?
      Anyone know if they are open yet?
      • BWR
        Buffalo Wings and Rings is running want ads for employment for their downtown location. It was closed temporarily and will be reopening soon.
      • Potbelly!
        Hooray for Potbelly. There was one close to my office when I worked in Chicago. Looking forward to it!
      • More Lunch
        Potbelly's is a chain, but I'm glad to see food going back in and not a financial services type office. I do like Potbelly's better than Quiznos.
      • Agreed
        I fell in love with Potbelly when I lived in Arlington, TX. And now when I visit Chicago, I head straight to the nearest Potbelly. I will be heading downtown much more often now.
      • Potbelly Info
        Joe, Potbelly's isn't open yet. Quizno's just vacated in the 4-6 weeks so it may be another month or two before they open.
      • A good sandwich
        The only sammich you need
        when downtown: Italian Beef
        Fresco Italian Sandwich Shoppe
        320 N New Jersey St(next to Omalia's)
      • Potbelly ehh.
        Just ate at Potbellys. The sandwich was good although they forgot the cheese. Portion size much smaller than what I have had in Chicago for the same price. Really nothing different than Quiznos except a shorter line, noiser, and staff stacking chips while you wait in line. Takes more than a name for a franchise to convince me.

      2. My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via

      4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

      5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
