The Feed: Caplinger’s Fresh Catch, Pizza By The Slice, And More

This week’s trends in Indy dining.

» Caplinger’s Fresh Catch (7460 N. Shadeland Ave., 317-288-7263; 15009 Gray Rd., Noblesville, 317-218-3221) plans to open a third location. According to the Indianapolis Business Journal, owner Andrew Caplinger will expand his fresh fish market into Boone County at 6685 E. State Road 334, the former home of Giandolfo’s New York Deli.
» Indy isn’t exactly known for pizza-by-the-slice options, but two new spots downtown have grabbed (and folded) the deliciously portable snack. Lexington-based Goodfellas Pizzeria (545 Massachusetts Ave., 317-602-3401) is now open on Mass Ave, and Chicago-based Papa Ray’s Pizza & Wings (1267 Shelby St., 317-820-3173) is serving hungry diners in Fountain Square.
