  • Mikado Japanese restaurant, 148 South Illinois St. in downtown Indy, is also closing. However, a new concept from the same owners might not be far off.
  • Finally, as you may have heard, Sun King Brewery is closing its Broad Ripple location, leaving five in the state until Mishawaka opens in the summer of 2022. The company cited several reasons for the closure, including the lease ending, a rent increase and construction in the area.
