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. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
