Why do I #LoveIndy? Revery gives us farm-to-table dishes

GREENWOOD, Ind. –- There are lots of reasons to love the city of Indianapolis.  We've been named a 'dream city' for millennials and one of the 50 best places to travel in 2017 by Travel and Leisure.

And let us not forget the food. We're kicking off our #LoveIndy series with a favorite of RTV6's Lauren Casey. A farm-to-table eatery in Greenwood called Revery.

Located in the heart of the city, at the corner of Madison Avenue and Main Street, Revery opened its doors back in October 2014.

The building that houses Revery dates back to 1863. It served as a lawyer’s office for more than 30 years. Revery owner Mark Henrichs also believes it was a pharmacy and mortuary at some time.

The original brick walls and hardwood floors have been exposed, and old ceiling joists were used to make the restaurant’s bar.

Revery operates a bar in front for adults, a family dining room, and a separate private space. In the back, customers will find Bar Rev, which focuses on craft cocktails, bourbon, and a more casual menu.

During the warmer months, customers – and their furry friends - can catch some sun on the pet-friendly patio that offers a menu for both guests and their dogs.

To keep the farm-to-table promise, Revery’s menu changes daily. Why? Because it’s just that fresh.

Henrichs says they do not own a large freezer because their ingredients come from gardens and farmers.

Customers are welcome to pour as much syrup as they’d like on Revery’s fried chicken and waffle dish. The next day, it may be replaced by dishes like shrimp and grits, orzo pasta or flat iron steak.

While customers can never predict the menu completely, they can expect fresh cuisine.
