Bluebeard

Copy Link
Bluebeard is a farm-focused restaurant nestled inside an old factory. We stopped in for a late lunch and shared most of the menu. Everything was amazing, but the cauliflower was real standout — we couldn’t get enough of it.

Milktooth

We were looking forward to stopping by Milktooth long before ever stepping foot in Indy, and it definitely lived up to the hype. We came back a few more times during our stay, especially for the Notorious F.I.G. iced coffee and the pastries.

Thunderbird

Copy Link
We consider ourselves professionals when it comes to eating fried chicken — and Thunderbird didn’t disappoint. Their fried chicken had an amazingly light and crispy breading, while the chicken remained juicy and fell off the bone.

Goose The Market

Copy Link
A butcher shop and an extension of Smoking Goose Meats, Goose the Market is a favorite of ours — and not just because of the name. We went a bit wild here and shared a few sandwiches, smoked corn, and beer cheese soup, all of which were completely delicious.

Black Acre Brewing Co.

What started as a small-batch brew pub by a couple of law school friends is now making some of the best beer in Indy.

Monon Trail

Copy Link
Staying active is tricky on the road, but Indy’s bike trails had us out on our bikes every day while we were in town. The Monon Trail was a beautiful trail that was once an old train line, so we were able to see most of the city and even some nature while riding.

Fat Dan's Deli

Copy Link
Fat Dan’s is a Chicago-themed bar that does right by the Windy City. We ate some of the best chicken wings of our lives here. They also feature Old Style on tap, so it’s a great place to catch a Cubs game with a drink in hand.
