Select Local Merchants

Don't confuse the concise dinner menu at Carnegie's Restaurant with uninventiveness. It's actually the result of a dedication to locally sourced herbs and veggies, which the culinary team relies on to craft seasonally changing dishes. Many of these burst with northern Italian flavors, from pork tenderloin roasted in a marsala wine sauce to tiger shrimp and linguini tossed with a tomato cream sauce.

Plenty of wines by the glass and bottle, as well as craft beers, complement feasts unfolding inside the historic Carnegie Library, where varnished hardwoods and chandeliers lend a stately feel to dinners. When weather permits, diners can even head outside to a romantic garden patio whose Venus fly traps are trained not to touch your steak.

After a decade-long stint in law enforcement, Anne E. Currie returned to the profession she is most passionate about: nailcare. Anne came full circle in 2011, when she opened Nailtoepia after having started her career as a nail technician in 1991. A creative soul, Anne specializes in colored acrylics, custom nail art, and glitter nails that double as disco balls for hamster nightclubs. Along with nail enhancements, she offers a full menu of nailcare services that range from Shellac mani-pedis to men's nailcare at her two locations in Greenfield and Morristown.

Where the air was once filled with the pounding of hammers and the smell of hot iron, the sizzle of burgers and the scent of maple syrup now reign. Cafe Audrey resides in a historic former blacksmith’s shop whose interior delivers just about what the quaint brick building promises: white-painted wooden chairs and tables, lamps that resemble old kerosene lanterns, and walls lined with vintage photographs. There, families start the day or take a lunch break with soul-food staples such as shrimp po' boys and plates of broaster chicken—named with a portmanteau of “broken” and “toaster”—dipped in crisp, fluffy batter. On the all-day breakfast menu, huevos rancheros and chicken quesadillas add a touch of spice to the morning.

The Post-Tribune highlighted Cafe Audrey as part of the resurgence of the Fort Ben area. Owner Tammy Cunningham didn’t land there by accident: “I wanted a local feel. I wanted to be a part of the community,” she told the paper, adding that the café has built a fan base of “a lot of great word-of-mouth customers” since its 2011 opening.

When Anass Sentissi, chef and owner of downtown Indy's Saffron Caf?, opened the doors to his new quick-eats spot in Broad Ripple, guests lined up to taste the bocadillos (sandwiches), salads, and other made-to-order Moroccan fare. Indianapolis Monthly described the eatery's decor of ruby-red walls and punched-tin lanterns as "oh-so-welcoming," urging guests to "stick with the chef's recommendations" to take full advantage of the build-it-yourself sandwich menu.

Sentissi, whose years of restaurant experience and secret family recipes earned his food a spot on Indy Style in 2010, helps guests navigate options such as shawarma and Moroccan tuna salad with radishes as they create sandwiches, salads, and platters. Harissa, a spicy red chili sauce, and charmoula, a zesty cilantro pesto, are some of the traditional sauces and dressings that give Poccadio's dishes their signature flavors, making for lunch options that are healthy, fast, and build vocabulary.

At The Coffee Brake Company, the wafting aromas of fresh coffee do not deceive: the staff freshly roasts beans onsite. They select local and artisan beans to blend into java drinks that can be served hot, cold, or by a dance crew from a nearby movie set.

The Post Road Recreation Center provides fun-seekers with a multifaceted diversionary depot full of family-friendly activities and eerie entertainment. Stumble through Slaughterhaus's more than 6,000 square feet of repellent real estate, and then enter the haunted woods for a shadowy game of high-tech tag sure to distract laser-loving poltergeists from their subdued cribbage tournaments. Full-throttled speed-wheeling for up to two hours can be spent cruising with unlimited 10-minute rides on an indoor slick track from behind the wheel of a Deuce Coupe kart, navigating the twists and turns of an outdoor street track in a Formula K racer, or (with VIP passes only) setting off a symphony of sonic booms on an outdoor fast track with the help of a pep-powered Fast Kart.
