I love great lunch places where you can get a good meal and meet with friends or do an informal business meet. Zest is great for that and has become a regular on my schedule. The selection is very good for lunch - traditional meat loaf and mac & cheese, to more elegant and lighter fare.
I'm a big fan of the chicken chipotle soup with avocado and lime, and the baja tacos - corn meal crusted rather than a batter. I also love their BLT and their deli salads. Regardless of your main, the sides also are varied and tasty - edamame succotash, chipotle slaw, pommes frites.
And if that weren't enough, you can get their breakfast menu until 5 PM - omelettes, a great breakfast panini, their famous creme brulee French toast and the best biscuits and sausage gravy I've found yet in Indy. Their fruit is always fresh and flavorful and the coffee has a real kick.
I've done dinner a few times and found the selections to be very good - and always specials from the chef. It's a very different menu - including lots of creative cocktails, wine and craft beers, but also dinner portions of some of the popular lunch dishes. Whether for appetizers or a full spread, I've never been disappointed.
I highly recommend Zest! and even trust it a group of close friends who meet there every month. Parking can be a challenge some days, but worth your patience. I always get a great meal at a reasonable price and leave happy!
