Bottleworks Adds More Food Tenants

INDIANAPOLIS – The developers of the $300 million Bottleworks District in downtown Indianapolis have announced two more tenants joining The Garage food hall. The new tenants plan to open next summer as part of the project’s first phase. A new concept, Azucar Morena, plans to offer Venezuelan fare, and the Chicago-based Furious Spoon will open a ramen shop.

Azucar Morena owner and founder Andreina Paredes Angulo will serve Arepas, a traditional Venezuelan breakfast, and other specialties from her home country.

“I want to teach people from Indianapolis the culture and food from my country. This is a unique opportunity for people to learn about where I’m from,” said Angulo.

Furious Spoon co-founder and head chef, Shin Thompson, will bring his varied menu of scratch-made ramen to the $300 million development. Thompson opened his first Chicago location in 2015 and has since opened six more, with the Bottleworks location being his first outside the Chicago area.

“It’s been such an amazing experience to see people’s love for Ramen grow here in Chicago, and as we expand to Bottleworks, we look forward to see that same love of one of my favorite dishes flourish in Indy,” said Thompson.

The two new additions join several others previously announced for the 30,000 square foot food hall.
