Breakfast, Grits, and Forty-Five Degrees

Took a little bit of a break over the weekend but that doesn't mean I haven't been out and about. Here's a little bit top whet your appetite for the week:


A new menu at Meridian. The shrimp risotto is gone but don't panic. It's been replaced by shrimp and grits. Oh, comfort food. My lips to my hips.

Mmm. Breakfast! It never occurred to me that Capital Grille would be open for breakfast. (They're in a hotel, duh.) But they have a few things I want to try including an eggs Benedict with lobster and hollandaise, a peppered filet hash, and what looks to be a fantastic Belgian waffle. Considering that there aren't a lot of good brunch options downtown, I've just added this one to my list.

Forty Five Opens? An ad in Nuvo touts FortyFive Degrees restaurant and lounge is opening 06/07/08. I haven't peeked in the windows lately, so I'll be curious to see how this new venture from the Blu Martini folks shakes out. (It's in the Beilouny building, a.k.a 757 Mass Ave, at the corner of College and Mass Ave.)

Here's a barely-related question disguised as a comment: my co-worker Bryan has guests coming in this weekend, and they've requested "the best breakfast in Indianapolis." Where, in your expert opinion, would one go to find that? (I suggested the "Big Hoss" at Mr. Dan's, but that didn't seem to cut any ice.)

I live on the same block as "Forty-Five", and it's looking really good inside from what I can see. I hope to be able to make it to the opening.. It's going to be a great addition to Mass Ave!

If you'll be eating off a hangover, "The Desperado" at lepeep is killer.
Croq Madame at petite Chou is very good.
Taste cafe for the worlds best B's & G's.

Have you had the biscuits and gravy at Biscuits? Fine dining it isn't, but they have spicy and mild gravy and the spicy is FAB u lous. Plus more hot sauce.
