Beer, Yats, and Terra Madre!

Lots going on locally these days as the Fall weather settles in:

Need a Job in Beer? Louis Calli over at Vine and Table in Carmel has a position open for beer coordinator. (Hat tip to Hoosier Beer Geek)

Yat's on the Rise: Our own Yat's was named one of the top emerging chains to watch in the October issue of Restaurants and Institutions magazine. Joe has recently opened restaurants in W. Lafeyette and Chicago and plans 9 more locations in the next year for 15 total. Go, Joe! Spreading the chili cheese etouffee love. Other chains to watch included fro-yo shop Red Mango, Nashville's Bread and Company, Oklahoma City-based breakfast chain Jimmy's Egg, Bumblefish, Tilted Kilt, and Bolocco burritos. Love 'em or hate 'em, give Joe props for making a great concept work in these nutty times. (Hat tip to Wine Canine.)

Terra Madre Posts: Delegates from across Indiana will be heading to Torino, Italy this week for Terra Madre, the bi-annual, global gathering of chefs, farmers, and producers. Chef Thom England of Slow Food Indy will be updating us on the Slow Food Indy blog.

Love Bread & Co in Nashville. A little expensive, but great sandwiches, salads, sides, & desserts.
