So now, as I have to do every so often (usually whenever another one of my favorites shuts its doors), I am giving you the poke in the ribs to get out there and support local restaurants. Next time you are tempted to go to a chain, for me, think about it and pick a local place instead. The only way we can expand our dining scene, encourage new independent restaurants, and maintain the ones we have is by supporting them with our business. If you are looking for ideas, check out the right hand "labels" column here on my blog, and click on "Independent Restaurants." Or leave a comment, or drop me a line. I will be happy to recommend somewhere close to you, wherever you are in the Indy area.
And hey, keep in mind that Chow Down Midtown starts this week, where you can get a multi-course dinner (or two) for $30 at some great independent restaurants in the Broad Ripple Area--what perfect timing to try someplace new! (Tomorrow's post will offer a review of one of the places featured on Chow Down Midtown, and I have reviewed many of the others--again, check the labels column to easily find them).
And feel free to leave a comment and a shout out to your local favorites. Anything we can do to support them!
Now, go eat!
