Indianapolis finally has a legitimate food scene. Spots like Bluebeard, Black Market and Recess are teaching this town how to eat. Each has my very vocal, financial and fully-sated gratitude. Apparently this gratitude has gone well-noticed.
Cerulean, Indy's newest entrant into our burgeoning restaurant scene, asked to host a private preview dinner at Atomic Indy HQ for eight of my closest friends + four social[media]ites. With an emphatic yes, the table was set.
Cooking in my kitchen, Cerulean treated us to a seven course culinary experience. Dishes like hay-smoked quail with wood stock (made from oak, maple and hickory) were expertly paired with unique wines. Each dish sparked thoughtful dialogue, followed by complete silence as we processed the complexity of every flavor. For full details on each course, check out this post at Solid Gold Eats.

Mid Century Modern was the setting. Innovative cuisine was the context. Both delivered. The Cerulean crew was fantastic. The food was amazing. Great times shared among the best of friends. Success.
Cerulean officially opens in downtown Indy at City Way on 11/23/12. They're currently accepting reservations here. You're gonna wanna go ahead and click that link.
