There's no shortage of new restaurants opening up in Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville and Westfield. Here are a few to check out the next time you eat out.
Located next to Convivio in Carmel, this sister restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. Expect hearty authentic frittatas and specialty dishes like the Rafa, a spinach pasta dish layered with eggs, bacon and bechamel. While you wait for your food, try a fruity smoothie or handcrafted champagne cocktail.
Enter the marked door on Main Street just west of Anthony's Chophouse and take the elevator to the third floor, where a sleek and classy rooftop bar awaits. Take your Carmel Cosmo or Rooftop Roundabout to the spacious outdoor seating area with firepits and a living garden wall. Pair it with small bites like tuna tartare, grilled watermelon steak or Pop Rocks cotton candy.
Seeking a perfect patio for summer? Look no further than the Boathouse Kitchen & Swan Dive on Morse Reservoir in Cicero. The restaurant and bar is nautical themed, complete with old boat motors functioning as decor. Dine waterside on the large patio and enjoy the sunset while you eat and imbibe.
Two-time James Beard nominated chef Alan Sternberg is at the helm of this brewery and restaurant located on State Road 32 in Westfield. Field Brewing is kid-friendly and serves lunch, dinner and brunch on Sunday. Before or after your meal, play lawn games outside under the string lights.
Carmel Midtown is growing, and Fork + Ale House is the newest addition to the scene. Drink a Monon Margarita, aptly named for the restaurant's location along the popular Monon Trail. The menu includes tavern shareables, pizza, calzones, burgers, sandwiches and more classic cuisine.
Craving a Meditteranean meal? This is your spot. Papa Fattoush is a family-owned business in the Carmel Arts & Design District serving gyros, saganaki, spanakopita and falafel. Enjoy your meal al fresco at a table outside and watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Carmel.
