Restaurant of the Week - Peterson's Restaurant
Monday, February 15, 2010 by Hamilton County Tourism
One of my favorite things about Indiana is that the seasons change. Â 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. Â While I love the changing seasons, I do miss the fun outdoor concerts, farmers markets, park visits of spring, summer and fall. Â So, when it gets too cold to do those fun outdoor activities- I eat! Â Every week this winter I will highlight one of my favoriteÂ Hamilton County, Indiana restaurants. Â As a foodie (my definition of foodie is simply someone who loves to eat), I will happily talk about the small diners, the â€œhole in the wallâ€? eateries, the fancy French bistros, the big restaurants and more. Â NOW, onto the good stuff â€“ enjoy, and feel free to share your own favorite Hamilton County, Indiana dining spots!

Â Whether you are toasting to another anniversary, are out for a holiday party or are simply excited that it is a Tuesday, this locally owned Fishers restaurant is a place for celebration. Â Since opening in 1999, their goal has been to offer a high-quality cuisine experience to the food and wine enthusiasts of central Indiana, as well as those visiting the area. Â When you walk in the door, you are warmly greeted and quickly guided back to your white cloth covered table. Â The service is impeccable, the food comes out piping hot and filled with flavor. After my recent Valentine's Day visit, I have to say that my favorite dish at Peterson's is the 8 ounce petite filet with a side of pan-seared scallops (you'll find the scallops on the appetizer menu)- my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Â We also had this amazing creamed spinach that I highly recommend. Â For your next celebration, keep Peterson's in mind - nothing is more fun than getting dressed up for a fun evening out!
