This is not a restaurant review per se, but I had a share-worthy dining experience last week and I felt like sharing it with you all here ~ Heather Tallman

Fact: I loved this place
Fact: My kids did too
Fact: The food is authentic, affordable, delicious
Fact: It may become the go-to for my husband and I when we are in the mood for a good meal, enjoyed outside that I don’t have to cook

Cerulean Restaurant Indianapolis~ A quick chef chat with Chef Caleb and Chef Chase~ Heather Tallman

Located in the CityWay development on the doorstep of the city’s professional sports venues and top entertainment sites in the Wholesale District in Indianapolis, Indiana.

What food do YOU think Indiana is known For? This is a tough question for me but every time I am asked I come back to the same thing. Chef Thom England of Ivy Tech Community College’s culinary arts program agrees and shared a bit about this and an initiative for 2014 that involves DigIN and local chefs~ Heather Tallman
