The Loft – Zionsville, IN

My daughter recently moved to Indianapolis and found a truly fabulous place to meet for dinner last week in Zionsville, IN.  It is a farm-to-table restaurant with a strong organic emphasis.   If you care about quality food, caring preparation and artful presentation … and are anywhere nearby (and by that I mean if you can get there by plane, train or auto) you should definitely go!



We started with a great organic wine (Badger Mountain) and a seasonally wonderful Autumn Salad.  Every bite was better than the one before.  It was hard to choose the entree, but I went for the Venison, with “bacony spaghetti squash” (yes, I do believe everything is better with bacon!) and my daughter chose the Filet with blue cheese butter.  Well, why not?  They are known for their award winning cheese.  As, expected … both were amazing!

We actually forgot to order our appetizer, so that left room for dessert!  Of course, homemade ice cream!  It conjured up all my childhood memories of homemade ice cream at my Grandparents’ farm in Southern Illinois – a time and place where real ingredients were grown or raised right there …   AHHHH!  I will definitely be going back 🙂
