Indianapolis Monthly – People's Choice 2009Author: WIBIA | Filed under: Announcements/News
Just ran across Indianapolis Monthly – People’s Choice Winners for 2009. Writing about food in this great city, I always wonder how my opinions hold up to the general public.
I agree with:
Best Restaurant: Eddie Merolt’s.
A few choices that I disagree with (strongly):
Best Mexican: Cancun. Weak, really weak.
Best Pizza: Bazbeaux. It gets the award every year, boring. I have a good feeling that the majority of people do not visit the Carmel location (horrible service and ruining the Baz reputation).
Japanese: Sakura. No. Try “Miyagi’s”, “I Sushi” or “Bu Da Lounge.” Maybe 2 years ago I would agree, but with these three restaurants opening this year, it is not even close. I am not 100% sure any of those three consider themselves Japanese, but if you are craving sushi/Pan Asian…there are better.
Most Romantic: Melting Pot. So overpriced. Riddle me this: bread dipped in a bowl of cheese, the worst house salad ever and strawberries in chocolate. How is that romantic?
