This Indianapolis food tour explores the commercial corridor bordering two of the earliest and most historic neighborhoods, Lockerbie and Chatham Arch. Massachusetts Avenue is a prominent commercial boulevard crossing a grid of residential, commercial and industrial buildings that developed mainly throughout the 19th century. The area is also home to an expanding food scene, hosting nearly two dozen locally owned restaurants. The restaurants throughout the area are a combination of long standing local favorites dating back to the 1800’s and new hot spots embracing the culinary traditions of the area. The Massachusetts Avenue Food Tour will explore the advancement of Indianapolis cuisine over the past 150 years; from the traditions brought over by the city’s original immigrants, to locally sourced progressive cuisine, all within a beautifully restored neighborhood.
