The Feed: Giordano’s, Big Woods Speedway, and More

This Week’s Trends in Indy Dining
» Giordano’s fans, mark this date on your calendar. The Chicago pizza chain’s downtown location will open in the historic Illinois Building (43 N. Illinois St., 317-288-3415) on May 17. Considering the lengthy wait times and lines when the pizzeria opened at River’s Edge (4110 E. 82nd St., 317-348-4085) last year, you might want to start coming up with a game plan now.

» Big Woods Speedway (812-988-6000) opened today at the corner of 10th and Main streets. The Southern Indiana—based brewpub’s new outpost is serving a full menu of popular recipes and craft brews made famous at its other locations: Big Woods Nashville, Big Woods Pizza, and taproom Quaff On! Bloomington.

» According to the IBJ, Florida-based Metro Diner is opening its first Indiana location at Clearwater Crossing (3954 E. 82nd St., 317-296-8262) on May 16, as well as launching a location at Southport Shops (7225 U.S. 31) in August.
