Indianapolis for conference.....recomendations?
I am in Fishers (but I like to drive) for a conference this weekend. I will have lunch free on Saturday. Is there an good place anywhere near to eat? I am something of an adventurous eater and nothing is off the table from pizza to Ethiopian, haute cuisine to can't-miss-diners/dives/drive-ins. Come on, midwest! Hook a fellah up!
Shapiro's Delicatessan. Over 100 years in Indianapolis and the finest corn beef or pastrami sandwiches in America, voted so by USAToday. Seating for over 2 hundred. Incredible European style pastries. A Midwest Institution ...
Across from the new football stadium on South Meridian. Also a northside store in Carmel and an outpost at the airport.
Wound up going to Euphoria, but forgot they didn't serve lunch. Wound up at Creation Cafe. Decent grilled portabella mushroom sandwich, could have stood a good aioli or spicy sauce of some sort, but decent. Had the chili too. Good flavor, nice heat, liked the Angus steak bits, could have done without the corn bread. A bit like gilding the lily if you ask me. Had the artichoke and Parmesan dip: great Parmesan flavor no.... to little, artichoke flavor. Had the Creme Brulee gelato as an afterthought, boy was I glad. Was the highlight of the meal. The atmosphere is the kind of shabby chic / bohemian that appeals to me, so I could have hung out there all day if I hadn't had to catch a plane. Solid Coffee, and good service.
