Restaurant near children's museum

I am looking for a great lunch spot near the children's museum that is not a chain. Any suggestions?

1. Re: Restaurant near children's museum

I was intrigued by your question and am happy i checked it out. My first thought was that there wasn't much in the area and, indeed by some standards there isn't. That said, there are a few and I was pleased with some of what I found.

Before going any further I will let you know what I used was my "go-to" restaurant site: Urbanspoon. You also might want to check Yelp! (which some swear by, but I avoid for various reasons), Chowhound (not sure if they have are real presence in Indy or not) or other restaurant rating sites (don't know anyone who uses TA as a primary restaurant info source).

Anyway, if you check out Urbanspoon you'll find at least a handful of restaurants in the area and I'll point out you it's not far to some of the other neighborhoods (Urbanspoon term for "areas"); Downtown, Mass Ave, Wholesale District and others are fairly close.

Anyway, I used the Northeast neighborhood and by using their map & popularity sort, found this place:


which I have also added to my Indy wishlist.

It's worth noting that given the fuzzy nature of the Urbanspoon neighborhood borders and the location of the Children's Museum you've got some overlap with Northwest neighborhood and ought to check it out as well.

Hope this helps,
