Located on the East End of Massachusetts Avenue, Black Market opened in June of 2011 with a small menu and a short wine list. In the years since, it has evolved into one of Indianapolis’ most beloved spots with hundreds of unique spirits, an award-winning wine list, Chef Micah Frank’s ever-changing menu, and remains one of Indy’s most prized restaurants.
“Everything we serve is an extension of who we are as diners, wine lovers, and cocktail geeks. We pour our souls into every aspect of the menu – food and drink.” says co-owner Ed Rudisell. “As we’ve gotten older and spent a lot more time traveling through Europe, the food has evolved and wine has evolved in ways that really transport me back to nights in Rome and Paris.”
The patio at Black Market is a highlight of the restaurant, offering a lush garden setting amidst an otherwise urban environment. It evokes the kind of courtyards where you might find yourself dining while traveling through Europe. Several locally-crafted wooden tables are circled by herbs and vegetables that the restaurant uses in its modest kitchen.
