Chef Justin Miller Invites You to Slow Down at Anthony's Chophouse and 3UP

After all, if you hurry, you might miss out on a big part of what’s being cooked up at Anthony’s Chophouse in downtown Carmel.     So … slow … down. Take your time.

The stories of Hamilton County’s Schoolhouse 7 Café, for example, fall squarely in the “more history” category.
