Let us share with you places we love, delicious foods, and tell you stories about our incredible city and the Indianapolis Cultural Trail that connects it all. 

Indy is heading into its strongest culinary scene ever – with recent accolades ranging from “Food & Wine Names Indy one of “America’s Favorite Food Cities” to “Zagat calls Indy one of the most exciting Food Cities of 2018”. It’s fair to say, that Indy has arrived to the foodie market.

The best-kept secret is that most of the restaurants are along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene and Marilyn Glick.

Join us as we make our way along the Cultural Trail stopping at all the best places that we’ve curated with Indianapolis food expert, Jolene Ketzenberger. This is an opportunity to go where locals eat, meet and talk with chefs and owners, get a behind the scenes tour, and learn more about how the Indianapolis Cultural Trail has transformed our city and became a culinary hot-spot.
