The Feed: Kountry Kitchen, West Coast Nook, And More

Kountry Kitchen
Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Place (1831 N. College Ave., 317-926-4476) closed on Saturday, following an early-morning fire that caused extensive damage. Open since 1988, the Indianapolis dining institution is beloved by both locals and visiting VIPs, including then-Senator Barack Obama during his 2008 presidential-campaign stop in Indy.

Fishers Test Kitchen restaurants Korave and Lil’ Dumplings both posted social media updates on their February 1 debuts. Meanwhile, the culinary incubator’s third vendor, West Coast Nook, has backed out of the project.

A fourth location of Public Greens is slated to open on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus in late spring.
