Renown local chef Greg Hardesty is set to open Studio C in in an out-of-the-way space at 1051 E. 54th St., just off the Monon Trail, with plans to offer private dining, a coffee bar, pop-up meals and more—even a service to supply home chefs with hard-to-find ingredients.
In other words, Hardesty plans to try a little of this and a little of that and see what sticks.
He talks with host Mason King about why he closed his last restaurant—the acclaimed Recess—two years ago and why he decided not to open another traditional restaurant. But this is no hobby. Studio C will be Hardesty's livelihood and he hopes to make it work for the long term.
