DiBellasDiBella's Old Fashioned Submarines, a chain of gourmet sandwich shops based in Rochester, N.Y., is scouting for locations for between six and eight new restaurants in central Indiana. The family-owned chain, which started in 1918 as a corner grocery store, has 23 locations in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan. The restaurants take about 3,500 square feet. DiBella's apparently is known for baking its sandwich rolls in house, along with its friendly staff and clean restaurants that call to mind a 1940s New York corner deli. The chain joins a deli throwdown of sorts in the Indianapolis area, as several shops including Jason's Deli, McAlister's and Paradise have been adding new locations. Anyone tried DiBella's?

Real estate reporter Cory Schouten is in Las Vegas this week for the International Council of Shopping Centers convention. Check for updates here on Property Lines, in the May 30 issue of IBJ, and on Twitter @PropertyLines.

    I'm grinning ear to ear right now. I grew up eating DiBella's in Rochester and they're incredibly good.
  • Congrats DiBella's!
    They ain't Rubino's...but what the heck they are good!

    Hometown cookin' in Innyapolis! Go DiBella's!
    I lived in Rochester for 12 years and outside of Wegman's the only local place I missed here in Indiana was DiBella's!

    We went once a week. An incredible sub shop and ALWAYS a happy face serves you.

    Cannot wait until it gets here!
