Cunningham Restaurant Group will bring its farm-to-table dining concept to Carmel next summer when it opens its third Rize location.

When the restaurant opens at 12955 Old Meridian Street, it will join Bru Burger Bar, another CRG concept, in a renovated Gateway Plaza retail center.

Rize launched in 2017 as breakfast and lunch bistro inside Indianapolis’ boutique Ironworks Hotel at 2721 E 86th St. Just a month ago, Cunningham opened a second Rize location, in the Fishers District, at 9705 Fishers District Dr., Suite 760.

According to written statement from the company, Rize will be open seven days a week with a menu featuring an assortment of breakfast bowls, toasts, brunch items, a chia seed pudding bowl, farmhouse waffles, eggs and breakfast cocktails.

Before the new Rize opens, Gateway Plaza is being redeveloped. Officials said changes to the plaza “will include new contemporary façade with Indiana limestone, clean lines and minimalist design by Phanomen.”

In addition to Rize and Bru Burger, tenants in Gateway Plaza include Burn Boot Camp, Halo Salon, Team Rehab, and A Cut Above Catering. The center is almost fully leased, with one 1,750-square-foot space remaining.

  1. Sounds like the new Rize is going head-to-head with Rosie’s Place across the street in the Olivia. I think the bigger issue is that there needs to be a unified development vision for not just the Gateway Plaza but the empty corner and the single story strip center where Estridge Homes, a church and the old bank used to be. I hope someone is thinking about the parcels on the northeast corner too. That old vet clinic closed at least 10 years ago.
