Downtown Restaurant Moves

Last week's IBJ (week of Sept 26) featured a roundup of upcoming restaurant changes and additions in downtown Indy. Chain sandwich shop Au Bon Pain is moving into the closed Roly Poly space on Meridian just off the circle in early 2006. Hardwicke's has also closed and the shop will span both spaces with entrances on both the Meridian Street and Circle sides. Jimmy John's will go in the former Bad Ass Coffee Company space just down the down the block. Look for a co-branded Noble Roman's and Tuscano's restaurant to open on west Market by the capitol. And it looks as if another nightclub may move into the old Nicky Blaine's space in the King Cole building (I hope they can get the cigar small out of there!) Last but not least, and with no formal announcements, I hear at least one new restaurant has been chosen to go in the space at the bottom on the new Simon headquarters building along with the other coffee vendors and cafe spots they're closing now.
