In the spirit of spring break and quick weekend getaways (like the one I just had in Chicago that I’ll be posting about in like one second), I want to circle back with a post from our weekend in Indy because we landed at a spot that I just have to share.
We spent our entire Saturday afternoon on Massachusetts Avenue, where we kicked everything off with brunch at Louie’s Wine Dive. We honestly just happened upon it as our Uber dropped us on its block, but I am so glad it worked out because the food was sharp and photogenic and totally delicious.
With a decanter of mimosa on the table, we shared a piece of avocado toast. And while I’ve had my fair share of avo toast, this was up there as one of the best. Along with the fried egg, tomatoes, and arugula was some tumeric honey, which was the perfect sweet twist. All served atop foccacio bread and it was something muy bueno.
I then think you will be shocked to hear that I ordered a seafood-centric dish (YEAH RIGHT). I stopped reading the menu when I saw a crab cake benedict and I was utterly and completed impressed. The crab tasted so fresh and the cake itself was flaky and not at all dense, which is just how I like it to be. Then what brought it all together was a bite of the perfectly cooked egg and a rich swipe of bearnaise. From beginning to end, this was one tasty little open-faced sammie.
Kenny ordered the honey butter chicken sandwich. Based on name alone, can you imagine NOT ordering this? Exactly. And to no one’s surprise, it was awesome. The chicken was perfectly moist, the bacon and cheddar were spot on, but it was all about the cinnamon honey butter. Talk about the right kind of perfect sweet added to a salty classic. All the way around, this one was the star.
So if you are like me and always down for a quick weekend away in order to enjoy some good down time with some really good company, keep Indy and Ironworks and Louie’s on your radar – you won’t regret it!
