Art is bought, in many cases, before or after a wonderful dining experience," said Ron Carter, the Redevelopment Commission's president, who added that many restaurant patrons will frequent the galleries while waiting for a table. "The more art galleries we have, the more restaurants we need."

I wonder what the "Arts District" will look like in 2 years when it is finally realized (admitted?) that even in Carmel we don't buy the real thing. We only buy prints and plaster.

Ron Carter wouldn't know Art if it hit him smack in the face.

How long will it take for Bub's to be removed from the area? I can't see the smell of hamburgers being grilled being that much of an attraction for the adjacent condos. And, from what is said in the article, it seems that this is not the type of dining establishment that the CRC wants to have in the area. In Old Town whatever the CRC wants is all that matters.

Ron Carter is a self servining individual.

This still doesn't solve the parking problem - there aren't enough convenient parking spaces or parked cars for hit and run.

And please, could the CRC offer parallel parking classes? Your constiuents seem a little lacking in their ability.

Oh, can't wait to eat at this new place! That's what I want to do after riding on the Monon all day-head for French!
What about a good, basic coffee shop?

You don't understand what the Arts and Design District is all about do you? It is to be a gathering place for the elite to dine and purchase thousands of dollars worth of art. You are supposed to go elsewhere to find something to eat after riding the Monon, like maybe up in Noblesville or Westfield. Only the upper crust is wanted in Old Town, at least that's what the CRC is saying.

I have never had a problem with parking. There is the lot where the Metro Bank use to be. In the evenings the National City Bank lot is always avaiable.

Is there a feasibility study that the CRC has done that states that this indeed the case in this marketplace? The Carmel government's CRC is calling all of the shots and controlling what goes into Old Town with no public input. Certainly they have a study that supports what they are doing, right?

Neither would Mayor Brainard. Just look at what he's doing with all those McStatues. What will be said in 10-20 years when the statues are being removed and sold for scrap. What a "great" (sic) legacy was left for the City of Carmel?

The restaurant sounds great, I hope the location works for them.

Sounds good, but I'll probably frequent the "other" white tablecloth eatery - "MANGIA" - my family's favorite and not far from the "official" A & D boundaries.
