St. Elmo Moves Up

St. Elmo Steak House (127 S. Illinois St., 317-635-0636) is shooting for a Labor Day weekend opening of its $1.8 million renovation. The redo will convert the 3,000-square-foot second story of the 109-year-old restaurant into a bar/lounge area featuring a 10-person private dining room and Prohibiton-style lounge. The lounge area will have a fireplace and TVs, making it more of a low-key area. The famous shrimp cocktail will be available upstairs, along with a new bar menu.
