On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Several new restaurants have filed plans to open around Indianapolis.

The Ripple Inn, a concept developed by local investors Troy Smith and Jason Tipton, is poised to take the former home of Broad Ripple Steakhouse. Ripple Inn is named for the hotel that once occupied the building at 929 E. Westfield Blvd. The restaurant, slated to open in the next two to three months, will feature steak and seafood entrees with a modern twist, along with lower-priced offerings, including a Ripple Burger and crab-cake sandwiches.

The Sinking Ship, a restaurant and bar, is under construction in the former home of Steck Plumbing at 4923 N. College Ave. The Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association is hosting a meeting at 7:30 p.m. July 27 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church so neighbors can learn more about plans for the lunch, dinner and drinks spot. The registered agent for the restaurant is Andrew Hamaker.

Longhorn Steakhouse is opening a restaurant in front of Castleton Square Mall in a former Smokey Bones location. The Darden Restaurants concept has locations along West 86th Street, East Washington Street and at Interstate 65 and Southport Road, along with restaurants in Avon and Carmel. The new location is slated to open in November.

Buffalo Wild Wings plans to open in the former home of a dance studio in Brownsburg. The restaurant is taking 6,400 square feet at 1551 N. Green St., in the same center as Boulder Creek Dining Co. and Pizza King. The chain has 14 Indianapolis-area locations.

  1. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email: Davidloanfirm@yahoo.com

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
