Eat Sheet: City Market, Northside Nights, and More

This Week’s Trends in Indy Dining
» Country Living is singing the praises of City Market (222 E. Market St., 317-634-9266) this week. Downtown’s go-to spot for local produce and lunch grub is one of the magazine’s must-visit historic markets. But that’s not all—City Market’s success is also getting international attention. According to Urban Times, executive director Stevi Stoesz will speak at the International Public Markets Conference in Barcelona, Spain, this month. But as a nonprofit, City Market could use some help with leftover conference expenses. Donate to its crowdfunding campaign here.

» Downtowners, it’s time to trek up to the suburbs for Northside Nights, which will run March 9–22. During the event, diners can indulge in three-course prix-fixe meals from an impressive lineup of more than 30 restaurants, including a few newcomers like Georgia Reese’s, Claddagh Irish Pub, Hino Oishi, and The Ville Restaurant.

» Soupremacy (7 E. Market St., 317-423-0780) is now serving Rocket 88 doughnuts. We heartily (arterily?) recommend the brown-butter version.

» According to Urban Times, a new 84-seat restaurant will open inside the historic Virginia State Bank at the corner of Virginia and College avenues. It has yet to be named.

» Try to wrap your brain around this: House of Cards creator Beau Willimon just told Vanity Fair that he’s annoyed by food. “I mostly see it as fuel,” he says. “I wish I could have a little brick that I could consume in 30 seconds, and that would be my meal for the day.” We’ll keep that in mind this weekend when we’re downing a box of Square Doughnuts while binge-watching Season 3.
