HI-FI & CHEF RICKY MARTINEZ COLLABORATE ON NEW FOUNTAIN SQUARE DINER SET TO OPEN THURSDAY, OCT. 13 IN FORMER PURE EATERY LOCATION
It’s a night out for a show at HI-FI. What are we doing first? Hitting Easy Rider of course!
HI-FI announced today the opening of its new restaurant, Easy Rider Diner, located in Fountain Square in downtown Indianapolis. The new neighborhood diner is a collaboration with Chef Ricky Martinez (Delicia, Bocca, Havana) and will open on Thursday, Oct. 13, in the space formerly occupied by Pure Eatery (1043 Virginia Ave. Suite 3). The brunch-inspired menu features a unique combination of American comfort food bursting with flavors of the Southwest from Chef Ricky Martinez.
You can expect traditional diner favorites like Chicken & Waffles, Eggs & Bacon, and Steak & Potatoes, Biscuits & Gravy; paired with adventurous Southwestern selections like Chilaquiles, The Cubano, Queso Mac & Cheese and Eggs In Purgatory. Fans of a communal weekend brunch will be treated to food and drink features along with Mimosa flights and Bloody Marys. In addition to traditional seating, the new restaurant also offers a full bar, private dining area and meeting space for groups of 12 or more.
Open Wednesdays through Sundays, Easy Rider will serve brunch, dinner and late night options. In addition to an extensive menu, fresh grab-and-go breakfast sandwiches will be available for guests on the run. Easy Rider will feature both family-friendly seated dining, as well as bar seating for adult guests, on a first come first served basis.
HI-FI Partner Josh Baker shares, “We’re excited to bring a much needed down-home breakfast spot back to Fountain Square and thrilled to have Chef Ricky on board.” This new addition compliments HI-FI’s existing trio of live music venues, providing the centerpiece of connectivity and allowing more access to its customers – creating a unique entertainment complex. General Manager Tony Basile (formerly of Iozzo’s) adds, “We’re confident the restaurant fills a need in the neighborhood while giving us the ability to collaborate with HI-FI to feed hungry concertgoers.”
Easy Rider will be open for breakfast, brunch and dinner with a select few late night options to feed hungry concertgoers. Initially, the diner will offer a baseline of regular hours but will frequently extend service times around popular concerts and events in the neighborhood.
