For creative cuisine in Indianapolis’ historic Chatham Arch neighborhood, try Black Market. Snag a seat on the garden patio, encircled by produce and herbs that are used in chef and owner Micah Frank’s dishes, or pull up a chair at the bar, where you can imbibe from the extensive rum list that includes over 70 options of French-, English- and Spanish-style rums from around the world, as well as several flights and creative cocktails. The restaurant’s self-described “farmhouse menu” includes dishes like apple-brined pork chop with dill spaetzle and horseradish cream, red trout and coconut green curry, and baked herb crepes with mushroom gravy, goat cheese and arugula. Wine director Chris Coy’s moderately priced 235-selection list is particularly strong in bottles from France, Spain, California and Italy, and has earned an Award of Excellence since 2014. Guests will find an abundance of bottles priced under $60, as well as several reserve glasses from Domaine Tempier, Schloss Schönborn and others.
