Aroma indian cuisine (501 Virginia Ave.) opened last week in Rook’s former Fletcher Place home.
Gardens grown locally Owner (1050 E. 54th St.), Ron Harris, used social media to announce the sudden closure of LGG, a massive, iconic loss to the 54th Street shops and restaurants area. Harris was one of the first to master the concept of the garage farm-to-table cafe that has become common on the hipster restaurant set. Harris sold ready-made meals, seasonal produce from small farms across the country, and lovely dishes for hardcore chefs. And if you’ve ever got a piece of warm sugar cream cake and ate it at one of its outdoor picnic tables, you’ve experienced one of the most sublime sensations of Indianapolis life.
Amelia’s bread announced last week that it will open a second location right next to the Kan-Kan cinema which we hope will spark the trend of having whole loaves of bread to nibble, share and pass on during the movies like a kind of pop culture community bring. The Windsor Park opening date has not yet been released, but you can rely on their social media skills to keep up to date.
Black Circle Brewing (2201 E. 46th St., 317-426-0143) has reopened after an incredibly difficult year for the bar and music venue for outdoor entertainment. Owner Jesse Rice relocated the brewery from the building of Refinery 46 in Loom, Rice’s brewery and taproom concept with Log Food Truck to make space for a small dining room for the Cuban sister restaurant Elena Ruz. Black Circle has organically grown into a busy music venue and has had to endure it on several fronts. One by one, the staff canned beer to make four-packs that will help the place survive, and they survived. Keep an eye out for show announcements on social media.
ModitaThe concept of the Cunningham Restaurant Group was opened in Bottleworks as an anchor restaurant (separate from The Garage) with space for up to 150 guests. The restaurant serves dim sum, noodles and rice dishes as well as starters from the robata grill – products on skewers that are grilled over narrow, extremely hot charcoal grills. Chef Braedon Kellner will be a familiar face as a prominent Tinker Street graduate. It is CRG’s 15th restaurant concept.
