WTHR: 300 East A Flop
All the pre-opening controversy surrounding the 300 East restaurant/bar in the Julia Carson Government Center has not translated into business nearly 6 weeks after it first opened according to WTHR's Richard Essex. He reports the empty parking lot says it all. Manager Daniel Emerson tried to convince Essex the restaurant was doing well, but he wasn't buying it. I haven't been in the place since it opened. An avid AI reader, however, shared the restaurant's menu with me. I was taken aback by how high the prices were on food and drink items. I suspect the destination is less than appealing to folks who are looking for a more pricey, fine dining experience.
