This local restaurant is back and better than ever! The Wine Market recently rebranded as Wine Market and Table to reflect an evolution of its brand, expanded menu and elevated diner experience. Chef Dan Nichols, Wine Market & Table’s head chef, joined us today to prepare a couple of dishes from Wine Market & Table’s brunch menu.
On October 8, the restaurant opened in a new location at 1110 Shelby Street, just down the street from its former space in Fountain Square.
Wine Market & Table has evolved from a wine shop to a neighborhood bar and restaurant designed to offer a place for neighbors to gather and enjoy great-tasting, affordable food, wine and cocktails.
Wine Market & Table is excited to enhance the diner experience through its new menu and larger restaurant and bar space.
Owners Zachary Davis and Kris Bowers designed the menu in collaboration with Chef Dan Nichols, an award-winning chef from Detroit, Michigan.
The seasonal menu will feature offerings ranging from small plates such as Roasted Beet Tartare and Char Siu Pork Bao to big plates including Walleye Fillet, Duck Breast and Bavette Steak. The menu also includes handhelds, salads and daily brunch.
Several of the ingredients on the menu are locally sourced from farms in Indiana, and many of the fish-based dishes are sourced from the Great Lakes when possible, including walleye from Lake Michigan and salmon from Lake Superior.
In addition to the approachable, high-quality wine selection the restaurant has become known for since its opening in 2017, Wine Market and Table has expanded its drink offerings to include beer and spirits.
The restaurant is open for brunch, lunch and dinner six days a week – Tuesday through Sunday.
Bacon & Eggs: Peach glazed pork belly burnt ends, 2 eggs any style, and roasted fingerling hash.
- To make this dish unique from the traditional breakfast version, Chef utilizes the ends and sides of Wine Market & Table’s house braised duroc pork belly trimmed from the blackberry glazed pork belly entree on our dinner menu. The dish is served with skillet hash and 2 eggs cooked to order.
- The pork is cubed and braised in a Jamaican Jerk spiced white peach BBQ sauce, and finished in a sauté pan until deeply caramelized to resemble the coveted burnt ends found in most BBQ joints.
- The skillet hash consists of pan roasted fingerling potatoes, green bell peppers, and sweet onions.
- The 2 eggs are cage and hormone free, and cooked to the guests liking.
- This is a great dish full of big flavors, but eats rather light, and would be best enjoyed with any of the fall flavored cocktails currently on our menu or a carafe of mimosas.
Chicken & Waffles: cornflake chile crusted boneless fried chicken, Belgian waffle with panda, hot honey maple syrup, fresh blueberries, banana and Chantilly cream.
- A brunch staple, Wine Market & Table prepares a buttermilk Belgian style waffle topped with corn flake-chili spiced fried chicken tenderloins garnished with hot honey and maple syrup, fresh fruit and Chantilly cream.
- The waffle is a traditional Belgian style batter with the addition of pandan extract, a southeast Asian plant that imparts hints of vanilla and coconut and the slightest hint of grass. It gives the waffle a bright green color which gives the dish a unique look as well as taste.
- The chicken tenderloins are coated with crushed corn flakes, and fried golden brown.
- The hot honey is spiced with cayenne pepper and chipotle chiles, and is combined with natural maple syrup for a tasty blend of sweet, Smokey heat.
- The dish is garnished with fresh fruit and a dollop of chantilly cream.
- This dish is perfectly suited to be enjoyed with any of our fall flavored cocktails, champagne, or wine spritzer.
- In addition to the dishes he’ll be preparing, Chef Dan will also bring a few dishes from the menu for display on the table during the segment including devilled eggs, potted trout, charcuterie board and corn crème brûlée.

Looking to support local businesses in the heart of the Circle City? This round up offers a mixture of downtown classics that have been around for decades along with some “new kids on the block” – all located within the square mile. Brittany Smith, Yelp midwest lead of community and marketing has ten dishes to try right now in downtown Indy. Enjoy making your way through this list!
Gallery Pastry Bar
Gallery Pastry opened their second dreamy location this June in the heart of downtown across the street from Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Not sure what to order when you visit? You can’t go wrong with the crème brûlée croissant French toast. We use our cinnamon twist croissant, soak them in crème brûlée base, then cook them on the griddle. It’s finished with barely sweetened cream, local honey comb, pecans and the salted lavender honey butter.
Located directly off Monument Circle on East Market Street, Soupremacy quickly pivoted in response to COVID-19 to offer family meal packs and delivery of frozen soup throughout the city. “Hot” on the seasonal menu right now: Gazpacho. There’s no soup that says “summer” and celebrates what’s in season quite like Gazpacho.
Greek Islands Restaurant
The Stergiopoulus family and Greek Islands Restaurant have been a downtown staple for more than 30 years. It’s a great time to order tasty strips of Greek Islands’ gyro meat topped with onions, tomatoes, tzatziki on pita bread and head out for a picnic.
Circle City Soups at City Market
Take your lunch break to the next level by popping in to the Original Farmers Market downtown at their new location on Monument Circle. A farmers market visit isn’t complete without supporting our incredible Indianapolis City Market vendors like Circle City Soups. Don’t miss out on the limited time only My Dad’s Sweet Corn corn chowder! The cherry on top? Cluck Bucks! Stop by the Original Farmers’ Market’s information booth with your fresh goodies and receive a $5 gift certificate to be used at the City Market.
Amberson Coffee & Grocer
New to the historic Fletcher Place neighborhood, Amberson Coffee & Grocer offers a much-needed addition of a local drive-thru coffee shop to the downtown landscape. Menu suggestion: try the iced horchatta latte!
LaTea Bubble Tea Lounge
LaTea Bubble Tea Lounge first opened its doors on Mass Ave in 2019. From making their own boba pearls in house to excellent customer service, Yelpers can’t get enough of this newer downtown business. Make the best of the hot summer months with LaTea’s fresh grapefruit green tea with chunks of fresh grapefruit throughout (it also pairs nicely with the homemade boba).
One of downtown’s newest businesses, Leviathan Bakehouse opened mid- July in the Chatham Arch neighborhood. From their old world bread loaves to the dreamy breakfast pastries, you’ll find something on the menu for everyone. Might we suggest the pressed-to-order mac and cheese panini? The sandwich features five cheeses, Parmesan breadcrumb-topped mac and cheese, wilted collard greens, house-made pickled red onions, and San Marzano tomato coulis. Currently offering curbside pick up and pre-orders
Plat 99 at The Alexander Hotel
Okay, so technically this one isn’t a dish but it’s hard to beat the outdoor space at Plat 99 at The Alexander Hotel. Currently on the cocktail menu: “The Meridian” featuring Roku Gin, Pisco Machu, ginger liqueur, hibiscus, lemon and aquafaba.
Axum Ethiopian Restaurant
Need a date night in? Go for the vegan combo platter for two at Axum Ethiopian Restaurant. The platter features six flavor-packed dishes served with injera. Axum is conveniently located across the street from the beautiful Central Library, making it easier than ever to pick up your curbside book order while you’re in the neighborhood.
Cafe Patachou (on the park)
Cafe Patachou’s downtown location used the downtime during shutdown to give their dining space a face lift and boy oh boy, is it sparkling with the new look. We’re giving a nod to the classic cinnamon toast from Cafe Patachou – you can’t beat this simple and iconic order of sourdough slathered in butter and topped with cinnamon sugar.
All food establishments on this list are offering carryout as of July 26, 2020.
