For the past four years, the Indigo Duck has anchored downtown Franklin’s fine dining scene.
People came from all over central Indiana for its she crab soup, trinity meatloaf and heirloom tomato salad. It was routinely on the list of the Indianapolis area’s best restaurants.
But on Sept. 20, the restaurant will close its doors permanently. Owner Karen Hewett announced Thursday on the restaurant’s Facebook page that when the lease ends in September, so too will the Indigo Duck.
She described it as a fitting and graceful way to transition out of the business.
