An Indianapolis Colts theme restaurant is planned in Downtown Indianapolis in space being vacated by an off-track betting parlor.
Florida-based G.R.E.A.T. Grille Group hopes to open the nearly 10,000-square-foot restaurant in August at 110 W. Washington St.
It will be the first of several National Football League-themed restaurants the company plans to open in the next three years under licensing arrangements with NFL teams.
The $4 million restaurant will be built in space used since 1995 by the off-track betting parlor in the Claypool Courts/Embassy Suites complex. Owner Hoosier Park Racing and Casino is shrinking the OTB's space in a move to the former Vito's on Penn restaurant at 20 N. Pennsylvania St.
The OTB's move is slated to happen late fall or early winter, but the OTB has already vacated about 7,000 square feet of ground-floor space at its Washington Street site.
