Pet Appreciation Week at Carmel City Center

Dogs and cats have always been more than just pets; they are very special members of the family. To show how much we appreciate our beloved family members the week of June 10th -16th has been dedicated to them as National Pet Appreciation week.  Although every day of the week our pets should be shown lots of appreciation, it is nice to have a week for pet owners to remember to really give their furry friends some love. What a better way to show them you love them than spend the entire day together!

Many might not know that Carmel City Center is a pet friendly environment, so during Pet Appreciation Week we wanted to show how much we truly do appreciate you and your tail-wagging friends with some special treats when they come to visit with you.

Now with their new outdoor seating available on the patio, divvy will welcome pets out there and will have dog bowls full of water for your dog to enjoy while basking in the warm weather. Let’s not forget when you bring your dog during National Pet Appreciation Week they will receive a treat while you eat.

Eggshell Bistro will be having half off their dog biscotti’s from one of the top ten bakery’s in the nation, The Enrico Biscotti Co. from Pittsburgh, PA to celebrate Pet Appreciation Week. Flavors like bacon and peanut butter is amongst the favorite of dogs and humans as well!

Addendum Gallery, Authentic Sports Collectibles, The Bike Line, Nature’s Karma and Uber Boutique will have treats to share with your pup all week while you stop and shop.  As Hubbard & Cravens opens to the public on June 16th, their outside patio seating will be pet friendly.

Head over to Carmel City Center the week of June 10th-16th to enjoy Pet Appreciation Week, surely your dog will love it!

*It is a privilege for Carmel City Center to be pet friendly all year round so please remember to have your pets on a lease and to pick up after them.

Eggshell Bistro makes its debut

A fresh, new option for breakfast just opened its doors in Carmel City Center. Owner, Larry Hanes, is a self-proclaimed “foodie” and an art director/designer by profession. According to Larry, “Eggshell Bistro’s culinary style can be best described as ‘global fusion’—healthy, rustic, fresh and often creative. A unique range of culinary twists are displayed by its namesake—the egg…with supporting roles from sides, salads, soups and sandwiches. The “quintessential quiche” and freshly squeezed-to-order organic orange juice have already been receiving rave reviews and acquiring a dedicated following. A non-automatic espresso experience, siphon coffee bar and Kyoto cold-drip coffee system…paired with a palette of patisserie options, will further delight your senses.”

Eggshell Bistro’s chef has worked at French Laundry and Bouchon in Napa Valley, which are both Thomas Keller restaurants and considered two of the finest restaurants in the world. In Indianapolis, he has worked at Taste Café. Larry created Eggshell Bistro’s menu based on the way he has cooked for last 20 years, and after passionately travelling around the last two years to some of the major food-oriented cities in the U.S. and abroad for additional culinary research. The menu items have been influenced by the cuisine of France, Italy, and even China, just to name a few.

Eggshell Bistro will initially be open from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m., plus some early evening hours, for special Palladium and community events. There is no doubt that Eggshell Bistro will be a favorite dining spot before attending world-class performances at the Palladium, however, a visit to Eggshell Bistro is its own cultural experience. Its bistro tables and chairs are authentic—purchased at auction and from antiquity purveyors, they originally resided in Parisian cafés. Other urban European artifacts will also grace its décor. Larry describes the atmospheric vibe as “a culmination of unique vintage-industrialism, modernism, and functionalism…all blended with warm touches in a very ‘London loft-like’ way.”
