Swoon List 10.28.14
Including the pappardelle from new Greenwood restaurant Revery.
If you’re a salmon fan, you’ve probably recently seen the name Skuna Bay Salmon on a number of menus. We’ve seen it at The Oceanaire (30 S. Meridian St., 317-955-2277), The Local Eatery and Pub (14655 N. Gray Rd, Westfield, 317-218-3786), Kona Jack’s (9419 N. Meridian St., 317-843-1609), Harry & Izzy’s (153 S. Illinois St. 317-635-9594), and Goose the Market (2503 N. Delaware St., 317-924-4944).
Swells and their dames came out in force to celebrate the VIP opening of the north side’s new Harry & Izzy’s outpost (4050 E. 82nd St., 317-915-8045), the fourth offspring of St. Elmo (the first being the flagship H & I at Georgia and Illinois Streets; then the airport location; the 33 Lounge above the main flagship place; and now this stylish addition to the family), located near the new Nordstrom Rack. Rest assured that the shrimp cocktail, fiery as ever, can be successfully duplicated, along with the potent martinis. Former prosecutor Carl Brizzi was in attendance, as well as proud grandpapa Steve Huse, whose son, Craig, has overseen the company’s smart expansions, along with operations boss Chris Clifford.
The creamed kale at Meridian Restaurant and Bar (5694 N. Meridian St., 466-1111). Taking a counter seat at Rock-Cola ’50s Cafe (5730 Brookville Rd., 357-2233) to watch the cook give three-quarter–pound grilled tenderloins and 10-ounce hamburger patties the smackdown on the grill top.
