August Foodie: Natalie Wall
It was almost two years ago when the doors opened to Rize, the first brunch-centric eatery in the portfolio of Indy’s Cunningham Restaurant Group. From day one, customers started filling the small space for chef Natalie Wall’s eclectic menu. Cold-smoked salmon toast, egg tarts, tuna poke bowls, and chia-seed pudding proved a draw for everyone from fitness fiends to fashion bloggers to corporate lunchers staying at the attached Ironworks Hotel.
This fall, the chef will expand the Rize brand to Fishers, where she’ll run the kitchen at a second (and three-times-bigger) location in hotly anticipated retail development The Yard. She’s ready. “Change really excites me,” says Wall. “How can I push myself further?”
One of Natalie Wall’s favorite things? This breakfast strata recipe that’s perfect for a house full of guests.
