Granite City logoGranite City Food & Brewery and Au Bon Pain are slated to replace a former TGI Friday's restaurant at the Indianapolis International Airport. Au Bon Pain opened today and Granite City is scheduled to open April 5. The concepts will be operated by locally based CC Holdings Inc. and share 4,000 square feet. The Minnesota-based Granite City chain has 26 locations in 11 states, including a restaurant at the northwest corner of Meridian and 96th streets. The Au Bon Pain will feature grab-and-go offerings and a small seating area, while Granite City will offer a full menu including Idaho nachos and the signature "Bedda Chedda" bacon burger. CC Holdings also operates two Copper Moon Coffee locations at the airport.

  • Finally
    The time has come to get rid of the old stalwarts and replace them with more creedible and "with the times" establishments. Weed out the old crap!
    Congratulations Airport; now if you would conform and re-instate the disability discounted parking you will move into the modern era!
    • Uptown Indy progress?
      Unrelated I know, but - I was driving south on College Ave. at 49th Street and noticed that one of the dilapidated houses has been torn down where the Uptown project is proposed ( Is it possible that this project is finally getting off the ground? Or is there a new use now being pursued?

      I just visited The Sinking Ship the other night and I'm excited to this intersection finally show some progress!
    • Quit crying...
      Compared to the old terminal, ALL the new airport parking is significantly discounted.
    • 49th & College
      From what I understand the Uptown project is still a pipe dream. They demolished the one home, are rehabbing the other two and considering leveling the 2 commercial buildings towards the NE corner and making it a parking lot.
