Named after the owners and their child (Asraf, Antonio and Zulma) A2Z Cafe offers up tasty breakfast and lunch dishes. From oatmeal to crepes, omelettes and "build your own" breakfast, to babba ganouche and Divine Salmon Cake salad. Warm, friendly environment for families and friends alike.

Agio is located right on Mass Ave, serving Italian food from chef Joseph Heidenreich. Local art decks the walls and a covered patio offers outdoor dining rain or shine. Agio is very popular pre-shows - theatre and concerts, so make reservations or be prepared to dine at the bar or have a drink while waiting. Vegetarian friendly.

Located in Broad Ripple, Ambrosia is a family establishment for families, romantic night outs and gatherings. Owned by a tiny Italian lady who has kept it in the family since she moved here so long ago. Great Italian food and a bar next door. Great outdoor dining. Dress cute and enjoy a nice, relaxing, homemade Italian meal. Elegant and light decor, Ambrosia is also a staple place to visit for visiting racecar drivers.

Andrus O'Reilly's is Irish owned and serves traditional Irish and American food in a dark, nice, clean environment. Plenty of televisions for your sports viewing pleasure, lots of beers and plenty of room to wander. Nice outdoor dining, and a good place to grab a bite for lunch or early evening.

Barcelona Tapas serves up tapas - Spanish appetizer-sized dishes - to make your palette happy! Small portions and a big menu, with lots of options. Indoor and outdoor dining, with a hip and cute Spanish inspired interior, makes it a unique dining experience for Indy. Go during the week- it's less crowded; you'll get more attentive service, and not feel as rushed. The food comes out as it is prepared, and they also have cheap cocktails (martinis, beer, wine and of course sangria!). Favorites include Pincho de Maruno (pork tenderloin with curry mayo), Patatas Bravas (roasted potatoes in spicy tomato sauce) and Alas de Pollo (garlic pepper chick wings with sherry mayo). Vegetarian friendly.
