Big News*

April 1, 2010 · 14 comments

Well, it’s been quite a while in the making, so it’s not news to us, and in fact feels like we’ve always known it would happen. It’s required much convincing, more than one argument, some soul-searching, and market research. It took a move, a change of profession (me), and a hard look at our lives. But we’ve decided, and are ready to make it public.

Tim and I are opening a restaurant.

We have been so excited about the place we’ve found ourselves, here in Indianapolis. It’s a city of people who are ripe for change, and ready to explore dining options. We have met countless people who are ready to go to great lengths to support local business, local food, and a growing culinary scene. I can’t divulge too many details just yet, since we still have some work to do with investors. But I can say that I will be directly involved with the menu (although I won’t be the chef — that’s still up in the air). Location, too — but we’re hoping for a place not too far from the so-called “gourmet ghetto” of 49th and College.

It might seem a strange time for this, for our family. But the city is at a great turning point, and real estate is still cheap. We have a lot of key people backing us, and I’m ready to say goodbye to design work for a longer while. All of these factors, combined, have led us to think the timing couldn’t be more perfect.

How exciting, and scary. But I can’t wait to watch it unfold.
