Happy St. Patty’s day! I hope you’ve got your green on!
Today I get to co-host with the lovely Amanda from Amanda’s Moments for the ‘tell me about your town’ link up! This month we’re talking about our favorite local restaurants.
For those of you who keep up with things around here . . . yup I live in Florida . . . but these local haunts are all about my hometown – Indianapolis, Indiana. I’m still discovering things around our new town and I miss my little ol’ Hoosier state. So I’ve compiled a full day’s worth of local Indianapolis restaurants.
For the most important meal of the day, my favorite place to head would be Cafe Patachou. So many options, but the best is their omelets with giant sour dough toast. This place is always packed so it’s best to go for early morning breakfast or a late brunch so you don’t have to wait too long. The blogging bestie and I have met here for many a bloggers brunch.
For lunch my top choice will always be Bazbeaux for some gourmet pizza. Indiana is not known for their pizza – we’re not Chicago or New York – but Bazbeaux has delicious pizza none the less. It’s not your run of the mill sausage or pepperoni either. My favorite is either TCHOUPITOULAS with Cajun shrimp, house roasted red pepper, green pepper, red onion, andouille sausage and fresh garlic or The Luke that’s light on cheese , Buffalo chicken, blue cheese, red onion and garnished with fresh sliced celery.
Finally, for dinner my new favorite place in Indy is Bakersfield. You didn’t think I’d go a whole day without nachos or tacos did you? At Bakersfield we’d start with lots of guac and salsa to start, a tray with a variety of different tacos to share, and some sangria to top it all off – makes for the perfect girls night. I know Bakersfield isn’t a Spanish name, but that’s part of it’s charm.
What are you favorite restaurants in your town? I can’t wait to hear when you link up with Amanda below! And don’t forget about next month, which is April 21 all about your town’s scenery/weather/climate (in honor of Earth day the next day) .
