A Window into Post-Prohibition
Prohibition era-themed restaurants and bars are all the rage these days, even nearly a hundred years after the original ban on alcohol. Repeal is a new Indianapolis restaurant that attempts to go beyond the gimmick with a lovingly restored space and inventive menu that includes a few throwbacks such as "mock turtle soup" and potatoes au gratin. The space is a former bank closed the same year as the repeal of Prohibition, full of salvaged historic furniture and highlighted by a glass window into the distillery next-door. Twelve Oh Five spirits are also used in several of the dishes, such as the gin-marinated chicken. Order a specialty cocktail and toast the reign of the modern speakeasy.
