Anna’s take: Note that Natural State Provisions has not reopened since closing during the pandemic, but Fishers District recently reopened, and if Natural State Provisions doesn’t reopen soon, there are other options within the Fishers Test Kitchen to place orders. However, if Natural State Provisions does reopen, I highly encourage you to patronize the restaurant. It offers high-quality southern comfort food, and the Mac Patty was extremely good. It’s a 6 oz. grilled burger with green chile dressing, American cheese, bacon and stout-caramelized onion on Texas toast. The eatery also offers southern sides like collard greens with house pickles and smoked ham ($4) and many other options. I’m not big on southern food, but everything I tried at Natural State Provisions made me rethink that.

Suggesting pairings: Since the Mac Patty onions are caramelized in a stout, it makes sense to pair this hearty meal with one of Sun King Brewing Co.’s stouts. Sun King is in the same building as the Fishers Test Kitchen, so you can enjoy the beverages and the food in the same place.
