Parea is a Greek term for a gathering of friends and family?and what better to gather around than the eatery's perfectly cooked meats. Entrees range from custom-grilled bone in ribeye to the restaurant's namesake burger, which comes topped with a feta spread and kalamata olives. Heaping basket of truffle fries round out meals, as do pours from the full bar. The bar's specials include a beer of the month and Martinis and Manicures Night, in which women can socialize and ask their bartender if a french martini compliments french tips.
While technically and metaphorically a chain restaurant, Houlihan's bedazzles its chain with glitter and winsome intrigue, boldly preparing every last bite of its savory fare by hand. Hosts of diverse ingredients culminate inside one open kitchen where professional food handlers slice, sauté, marinate, and arrange food to its tasty and aesthetic best, allowing each meal to display its individuality before being broken down into individual nutrients for absorption in the body. Casual dining is elevated by meticulously designed restaurants that pepper a patron's experience with a playlist of hand-picked tunes and customer-designed coasters that give a voice to condensation-catchers.

Though less well known for its barbecue style than its neighboring states, Arkansas-style barbecue offers up a different take on smoking and grilling meat. Rubs, sauces, and slow-cooking techniques rule this meticulous meat-prepping style, and the pit masters at Kinney -n- Lee's BBQ and Catering have mastered it. The restaurant's tender, juicy cuts can be ordered up in a choice of baskets, sandwiches, platters, and buckets. The house specialties are ribs and rib tips, which can be eaten up as part of a hearty meal combo such as the King Kinney bucket, which pairs a colossal 2.5 full racks of ribs with a choice of three homestyle sides. Chefs also cook up and smoke cuts of pulled pork, turkey legs, catfish, and ocean perch, offer take-home packages by the pound so clients can pack delicious picnics without searching for a chef small enough to fit inside a basket. Kinney -n- Lee's BBQ and Catering also provides catering services.
Good Morning Mama’s owners turned an abandoned gas station in southern Broad Ripple into a charming breakfast and lunch-only diner, complete with bright yellow paint and Formica tabletops. The building’s former purpose still lives on in the form of images of 1950s cars and waitresses that grace the walls of the brightly colored eatery. Of course, Good Morning Mama’s serves the customary breakfast foods, along with more original options like an Elvis-inspired peanut butter and bacon sandwich; coffee-flavored French toast made with Challah bread; whole wheat spaghetti scrambled with eggs, cheese and toast; and a fried Spam, onion and potato omelet topped with sausage gravy. Creative lunch options include a pizza burger, but all of the plates are served with a side of sunshine and a smile from the effortlessly nice waitstaff. Champagne mimosas, wine and commercial beer keep the beverage list as playful as the surroundings.
