Thursday night I was lucky to go to Trader's Point Creamery in the northern part of Indianapolis (right by Zionsville) with three awesome people: Andrew, Aava, and Ben. I was pumped for this farm-to-table experience, and it didn't fall short of expectations. The whole atmosphere really emphasizes the farm, from the minute you pull up to it and even walking into their restaurant, The Loft. Below The Loft is a small general store where you can purchase jams, nut butters, pickles, fresh beef, and ice cream. The kind of store I could be in all day. I'll have to come back so that I can splurge on some yummy items for the apartment.
The service was friendly and the food, incredible. We started out with their cheese plate, composed of cheeses straight from their farm. The honeycomb was perfect with their brie, and I was obsessed with their fig-mustard jam. Where has this combination been all my life? The meals consisted of bison and potatoes, salmon with the crispiest skin, and duck two ways, and we ended the night with desserts featuring their fantastic chocolate milk in the chocolate pudding and churros, and their ice cream which came with a warm, fresh blueberry cobbler.
But by the far the highlight of the meal was the awesome company. I love when you can sit through a meal and talk until you've realized that the restaurant is closing and you should probably leave before the waiters kill you for overstaying. We did just that (not that they felt like killing us, they were absolutely wonderful waiting for us to leave). It's dinners like these that make me grateful for such good friends. Thanks for a wonderful Thursday night guys.
I would highly recommend checking out Trader's Point Creamery. They also do a brunch... I'm sensing a potential summer/pre-rotations med school event? Yes please.
