The first restaurant stop on our trip was Tulip Noir in Indianapolis. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere almost as fresh as the food. While I wouldn't classify it as a kid-friendly restaurant, we were certainly made to feel welcome and the boys enjoyed grilled cheese and pb & j sandwiches with fresh fruit.
I decided to have the fresh veggie panini done vegan (no cheese) with hummus on gluten-free bread. The sandwich was tasty and satisfying, but after sampling my husband's spring saute, I almost wished I had ordered that. The favorite for both of us though were the asparagus walnut risotto cakes. They were in fact, my favorite food of the whole trip. Yum!
In addition to our meal, I enjoyed tea in the most charming little pot and a gluten-free lemon bar which was divine. If you live in or are traveling through the Indianapolis area, Tulip Noir is definitely worth a stop. Do go in the earlier hours though, as they only serve breakfast and lunch.
Anyone else ever been to Tulip Noir?
