After hosting a number of pop-up events in Indianapolis over the last couple of years, Bloomington’s King Dough finally has a permanent home in town. Indianapolis Business Journal reports that owners Adam and Alicia Sweet will open the second location of the wood-fired pizza joint in the Holy Cross neighborhood by the end of the year.

Upland Brewing (4842 N. College Ave., 317-602-3931) is expanding its Broad Ripple tasting room and taking over the space right next door (formerly occupied by Open Society) to create an all-ages restaurant and cafe. The tasting room will continue to serve carryout beer and growlers, and will remain 21-and-over. Expect a grand opening for the new dining room and bar on New Year’s Eve.

King David Dogs closes its downtown location on November 21. Co-owner Brent Joseph (with his wife, Hannah) told The Indianapolis Star that he will focus on growing his new catering venture, Mercenary BBQ. The airport location of King David Dogs will remain open.

Ian Stricklin is the new chef de cuisine at Turchetti’s Salumeria (1106 Prospect St., 317-426-3048). Stricklin most recently helped open Cunningham Restaurant Group’s Nesso Coastal Italia (339 S. Delaware St., 317-643-7400) in the sous chef role.
