Meridian Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review: Gracious dining is in store at Meridian, situated amidst mansions along Indianapolis' tony North Meridian Street. Take a seat at the bar for an appetizer or snack before seeing a play, or enjoy a leisurely meal in the dining room that might begin with Thai coconut mussels or fried oysters atop creamed spinach with a touch of sriracha. Although the menu is seasonal, there are some dishes that would cause a riot if taken off of the menu, such as the smoked corn purée soup or Gunthorp Farms pork chop. Wine selections are decent and easily recommended by the trained servers. Skip the dessert of milk and cookies or miniature donuts served in a brown paper bag and go for the choice of regulars: old-fashioned carrot cake or chocolate mousse torte.
