One of my favorite things about Indiana is that the seasons change. Leaves turn bright shades of orange, red and yellow in the fall; white snow covers the ground in the winter; and the grass turns a vibrant shade of green in the spring. While I love the changing seasons, I do miss the fun outdoor concerts, farmers markets, park visits of spring, summer and fall. So, when it gets too cold to do those fun outdoor activities- I eat! Every week this winter I will highlight 1 of my favorite Hamilton County, Indiana restaurants. As a foodie (my definition of foodie is simply someone who loves to eat), I will happily talk about the small diners, the hole in the wall eateries, the fancy French bistros, the big restaurants and more. NOW, onto the good stuff - enjoy, and feel free to share your own favorite Hamilton County, Indiana dining spots!
Keltie's - In the heart of Westfield, tucked away on the corner of 32 and Union Street, you will find the locally owned Keltie's restaurant, which specializes in delicious homemade soups, entrees, appetizers and desserts. Tables are covered in white cloth, servers are nicely dressed, the food comes out warm and tasty - but your wallet is not drained as you walk out the door. I have been there for both lunch and dinner, with co-workers, family and friends - and have yet to leave anyway but full and happy. I recently stumbled across a blog post, written on the 4th Frog Blog, that gives a great review after a date night experience at Kelties.
It is my habit to order the same thing each time I go to a restaurant. Well, in the case of Keltie's, I have switched up my meal with each visit. I have had the Beggar's Purse (this is what she is famous for - it is classic chicken salad mixed with blue cheese and stuffed into a puff pastry, then topped with a yummy cranberry mustard sauce), I have had the Pot Pie (which I am sad to say that is no longer on the menu!), a steak that was cooked so perfectly I could almost cut it with my fork, crab cakes, piping hot soup and a Heavenly chocolate cake.
If you are visiting for a quick Indiana getaway or are a long time resident - make the time to drive to Westfield and enjoy a great meal from Keltie's, an amazing local eatery.
