INDIANAPOLIS — A brand-new food spot for southern dishes and traditions will soon be opening its doors for Indy residents.

Tupelo Honey Southern Kitchen & Bar's newest location at 320 S. Alabama Street will open on Tuesday, April 4.

The 5,500 square foot restaurant sits in the CityWay development right across from the Irsay YMCA, and includes a 1,200 square foot patio.

According to the restaurant, their Indy menu features a modern twist on Southern favorites, including Tupelo Honey’s famous bone-in fried chicken seasoned with “bee dust,” a signature blend of spices; Tupelo Shrimp and Grits; a New Orleans-inspired Roast Beef Debris; and several savory and sweet brunch combinations, such as Fried Chicken and Biscuits, waffles, and variations of Eggs Benedict.


“We are excited to introduce our delicious Southern dishes and traditions to people who live, work and play in downtown Indianapolis,” said Caroline Skinner, Tupelo Honey’s Chief Operating Officer.

The restaurant also touts their beverage menu, with four different mimosas and six variations of Bloody Marys. They even added a local touch, using spirits from 1205 Distillery and Hotel Tango for classic cocktails. Additionally, Tupelo says half of their 20 beers on tap will be from Indiana-based brewers.


The restaurant’s brunch, lunch, dinner, and bar menu can be found here.

Tupelo Honey’s new location will be open Monday – Thursday from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Friday from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Saturday from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.
