As a fan of downtown Indy, I love to be able to introduce people to restaurants in Indy. Contrary to what I sometimes hear, Indianapolis DOES have a variety of one-of-a-kind locally-owned restaurants, as well as some unique restaurants with only a few locations nationally.
Our restaurant guide represents a small portion of dining options available in the downtown area; if you have questions about particular ones, other ethnic cuisine options, etc., please leave me a comment, or stop by the Hospitality table at the conference!
I also highly recommend checking out the map from the Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association: http://visitindy.com/web_files/map/DTRestMap_c040110.pdf
This is a great 2-page document with a map showing locations of many landmarks and restaurants in downtown Indy, as well as contact information for those places. I’m a visual person and seeing a location of something on a map is more helpful to me than only written directions.
