A new Carmel restaurant will bring with its opening sharing cuisine, beer and wine targeted toward a 21 years old and above crowd. Stompin Barley, 14560 River Rd., Suite 140, opened Feb. 21.

Executive Chef Kyle Allbright, who recently worked at the Oceanaire Seafood Room in downtown Indianapolis, said his menu items will be made from scratch and locally sourced.

Barley is a from-scratch restaurant with wine and beer options.

“What I’m trying to do with my food is pretty much take downtown (Indianapolis) and bring it to Carmel, because nobody else is doing the from scratch type of deal,” said Allbright, a Fishers resident. “So we are getting away from the corporate chain feel and bring people to a nice place to come in have some wine, grab some good food and keep it reasonably priced.”

The price range is $6-15 for appetizers and small plates and $12-27 for entrees. Menu options include duck confit, seared scallops piccata, cedar plank salmon, various sliders and tacos and more.

Currently, the restaurant only serves beer and wine and no liquor. The menu for lunch and dinner is the same, but Allbright said depending on feedback, the restaurant may branch out into exploring different menu options.

“It’s just classic cuisine with a twist of modern flavors,” Allbright said.

Owners Dick and Alesia Deboer hail from Noblesville. This is the couple’s first restaurant endeavor. The restaurant is open 3 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday and closed Monday.
