    Il Gargano Ristorante & Trattoria: The BEST authentic Italian restaurant in town!!

    by GlobalMatt Updated Dec 12, 2003

    The owners of Il Gargano are from northern Italy...and specialize in Northern Italian cuisine. The food here is all made from scratch...and is absolutely to die for. A typical course includes a green Italian salad with roma tomatoes and fresh crushed pepper with shaved parmesean cheese and oil & vinegar dressing. Accompanying the salad is the most delicious Italian loaf with garlic fused oil to dip it in....yum yum!!! The entrees are very diverse and outstanding every visit. The chef always has special new dishes to offer each time I'm there. To top it off, their wine selection is excellent and the desserts are sinful. I highly recommend a visit here.

    Favorite Dish: Veal Bruschetta Pomodoro

    Brickyard Restaurant: Food at the Brickyard

    by djramey Written Sep 30, 2003

    Any trip to Indianapolis from those not residents, seems to usually include trips to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and if this includes you I would say do not miss the Brickyard Restaurant within the area. It is likely if you visit around any of the big three races (Indianapolis 500, Brickyard 400, or the F1 Grand Prix of America) you will eat alongside famous faces enjoying the great prime rib. The price at the Brickyard Restaurant is cheap, the location superb and it is not overly difficult to find a table with which to eat at.

    Favorite Dish: The prime rib I hear is the meal to get. I am not a huge prime rib fan, but people that eat there regularly or just one time swear by it. Rumor has it that AJ Foyt orders the prime rib!

  • The Oaken Barrel: ROLL OUT THE BARRELS....

    by Munchkin1973 Updated Apr 25, 2003

    The best brewed beer this side of the Mississippi and the sweetest BBQ ever had. I'm a southern girl and that compliment comes straight from the heart. Very diverse menu for a brewpub with choices for everyone from large specialty sandwiches and full course dinners to traditional brewpub fare. If you stop only for the beer they have something for everyone, and when you finish your beer go next door to DELAFIELDS and try the chicken salad.

    Favorite Dish: The BBQ of course, can't get it any better than my own kitchen unless you have it here..

  • El Porton: Not El Holo in the wallo

    by FoxWMulder Written Jul 28, 2003

    El Porton is around 96th and Michigan. It looks like a hole in the wall from the outside. It is not fancy, but has great food. Looks are quite deceiving here, so don't judge this book by its cover. I'll just sit idly by thinking of more clichés.

    The Corner Wine Bar: The Corner Wine Bar

    by Cabana_Boy Updated Dec 25, 2002

    Eventually, there will be a lot of restaurants located on my Indianapolis page, but this is my favorite restaurant for actual "dining." Remember, Uncle Phil said there are restaurants for eating and restaurants for dining.

    The Corner Wine Bar accomplishes a nice balance between the two. The restaurant is quite small, almost doubling in size during the summer months when outdoor seating is available. And as the name suggests, there is an excellent wine list. The Corner Wine Bar is also attached to The Wellington, which is one of my all time favorite bars in Indy (check out my Nightlife section for the Welly).

    Favorite Dish: I like to try different bottles of Merlot taking suggestions form the wait staff. For food, I usually order one of their nightly specials. The menu is difficult to classify because it can have lots of items taken from different cooking styles (French, Italian, Asian, American), but everything is done up well in terms of presentation, quality and quantity.

    Be sure to ask how big the entree's are before you order. The prices seem hight until you realize most entree's can feed two people. The chicken scallopini (sp) can easily feed two people. Let your sever know you plan on sharing and they will slit the meal on two plates.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Scallopini (sp)

  • Mikado Japanese Restaurant: Mikado Japanese Restaurant

    by Granger44 Written Aug 26, 2002

    Somewhat pricey but well worth the money.

    In addition to regular dining areas, it has teppanyaki tables where the multi-course meal is prepared in front of you, as well as a sushi bar.

    Favorite Dish: Surprisingly it's the pork chops I order every time I dine here. Glazed with a sweet sauce, they practically melt in your mouth.

    A famous restaurant line: HOOTERS...
    Food is not so great but it's not the goal, girls are short dressed, when there is a race we can see it on giant screens.
