What I Learned in this Month's Urban Times

I always run into something interesting in the Urban Times:

* Elizabeth Garber is expanding The Best Chocolate in Town into the space next door increasing her square footage and workspace. She's also adding pastries from Rene's in Broad Ripple along with gelato and coffee. Renovations were scheduled to be finished by this weekend.

*Look for a new Thai restaurant to go in the long-vacant Bistro 936 space (nee Peter's) at 936 Virginia Ave. Target opening October 1. (I always wanted to have a party in that brick downstairs cellar-bar.)

*Mark your calendars for the Market-to-Market ball benefiting the City Market on Sept 20. Tickets for the black-tie optional dinner dance are $150. RSVP to event chair Michael Halstead, 317.684.1431 by this weekend.

Speaking of NEW Thai Restaurants...

Thai Papaya (the old Thai House at 86th and Michigan) just opened today. They're located at 96th and michigan, in the strip mall behind mcDonalds.

It's as delicious as it was before.

Glorious news about the Best Chocolate in Town - I love those little bits of deliciousness. And Rene's pastries might make it too good of a location to keep myself away from. I'm thinking every other day - that's not overkill, right?

And thank goodness about that Bistro 936 spot!

I'm incredibly excited to have a thai restaurant in my neighborhood.

Let's hope it's good -- because there is some *nasty* Thai food in this city.

I love Thai, but live downtown and have been without good thai source since moving back from bloomington. I hope for the best.

As for Best Chocolate selling Rene's products I couldn't be more excited. Best croissant's in town just around the corner from my house. WOOHOO!

I try not to make blanket statements like the one I'm about to make, but...

There is no good and in my opinion even decent Thai in Indy. On the Asian front, if you haven't tried Taiwan Teahouse, the wonton noodle and the dry spicy wonton noodle are bang on authentic!

Fingers crossed for the Fountain Square Thai place. It's aggravating that there's no decent downtown option when you've got a taste for take-out Thai.
