New restaurants: Upland in Carmel, Lincoln Square downtown

Upland Brewing Co. plans to open a restaurant and tasting room in Carmel along 116th Street between College Avenue and Guilford Road.

The restaurant is taking a 2,300-square-foot space in the same center as a Lenny’s Sub Shop and iSushi Café. Bloomington-based Upland also operates a tasting room at 49th Street and College Avenue in Indianapolis.

Lincoln Square Restaurant and Pancake House, a home-grown breakfast and lunch chain with seven central Indiana locations, plans to open a restaurant just north of downtown in the former home of an office furniture shop.

The restaurant, helmed by father-son owners George and Chris Katris, is taking 5,150 square feet at 2330 N. Meridian St., next door to Mercedes Benz of Indianapolis.

Old Carolina Barbecue, an Ohio-based chain with seven locations in the Buckeye state, is looking to expand to the Indianapolis area with four new restaurants. The chain is looking for a franchisee partner who would open the first store within about six months.

The menu highlights pulled pork and St. Louis-style ribs, though Old Carolina also serves chicken and beef, “to keep the Yankees happy.”•
