A popular breakfast and lunch spot with locations in north Indianapolis and Fishers will soon open in Carmel.
Rize restaurant is expected to open sometime this summer. The restaurant’s parent company, Cunningham Restaurant Group, already operates a Bru Burger at the same location where Rize is slated for construction at 12955 Old Meridian St.
“Cunningham Restaurant Group has experienced great success with the Rize concept, and with breakfast and lunch locations becoming so popular, it makes sense to add a Rize to our location where Bru (Burger) Carmel is already operating,” said Carissa Newton, director of marketing for CRG. “The Rize concept is unique in that we take our chef-driven philosophy and apply it to a menu filled with fresh and local products that make up the menu of breakfast and lunch specialties.”
Open seven days a week, menu items will include breakfast bowls and brunch items, including a chia seed pudding bowl, farmhouse waffles, traditional Eggs Benedict and breakfast cocktails. The lunch menu will feature salads, sandwiches, smoothies and more. Newton said freshly made pastries and breads from CRG’s bakery, Croute Baking Co., will supply Rize, as will its local greenhouse for fresh herbs and microgreens.
The new Rize will be 4,190 square feet with an estimated seating capacity of more than 100 inside and more than 50 on an outdoor patio. Newton said guests can expect the Carmel Rize to look similar to the Rize locations at Ironworks Hotel in Indianapolis and in the Fishers District. The first Rize opened at Ironworks in the fall of 2017 and in Fishers in spring 2019.
Other tenants of Gateway Plaza, in addition to Rize and Bru Burger, are Burn Boot Camp, Halo Salon, Team Rehab and A Cut Above Catering. As of press time, one neighboring suite remains for lease.
