Palate & Palette: Indy's Great Taste in Food & Art


When you're hungry for both culture and cuisine

Chefs and brewmasters are as much artists as the greatest painters and sculptors from the ages. This fall tour of the Indianapolis area will satisfy your appetite for both culture and cuisine.

Taste sensations

Two artsy areas of Indianapolis offer masterpieces to eat and drink. In Broad Ripple, see what’s on tap at Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company.  For a meal with Belgium flair, try Brugge Brasserie.

In the Mass Ave Cultural District, you can always count on something fresh and local at R bistro.

Don’t miss Goose the Market, a neighborhood specialty food and wine market in the heart of Fall Creek Place. 

Outdoor works of art

Traders Point Creamery in Zionsville knows that grass-fed Brown Swiss dairy cows deliver more nutritious milk than grain-fed cows. Enjoy seasonal, organic fare at The Loft Restaurant or a treat in The Dairy Bar. 

Make the most of a perfect fall day by exploring 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Eight giant outdoor sculptures take their place within nature to create a never-the-same experience for you. 

Make the JW Marriott homebase for your Indy cultural tour. This giant, blue glass, 33-story hotel – Indiana’s tallest – overlooks White River State Park.
