December 11th, 2023 Restaurant News

Starting off with some closures: Scarlet Lane Brewing has closed two of its locations — 46th and College Avenue and 17th and Bellfontaine in Indianapolis — to focus on their other locations in McCordsville, Irvington and Beech Grove.
In Noblesville, Texy Mexy will be closing Dec. 28 after five years and more than 10 years before that at the farmers’ markets. Look for another business to be taking over the space on the courthouse square in Noblesville.
In Indy’s SoBro neighborhood, Prufrock Coffee, which had previously announced its closure at 52nd and College Avenue, will be reopening under new ownership Dec. 14.
Sidedoor Bagels, located at 1103 E. 10th St. just off Mass Ave in Indy, has announced it will be expanding into adjacent space next door, doubling its square footage for more kitchen and lobby space. It won’t be adding indoor dining, but will have more room so those waiting in line won’t have wait outside.
On Indy’s Mass Ave, Kyuramen will be opening soon. The New York-based ramen chain has about 120 restaurants in the U.S. and Asia.
Congrats to Indy’s Ash & Elm Cider, which has announced its second taproom and restaurant location; it will be opening next year in the new North End development in Carmel in late spring.
