INDIANAPOLIS -- The Monon Food Company has closed its Broad Ripple location to focus on its downtown location.
The restaurant posted on Facebook Sunday to announce the closing after eight years of business:
"It is now that we feel that our new downtown location has manifested the original vision and model of quality and fresh food served in a fast-casual environment. Unfortunately, this has led to the challenging and emotional decision to retire the full-service model that no longer fits our current and future vision of MOFOCO."
The restaurant was known for its casual patio just off the Monon Trail, its tasty tacos and complex mac & cheese, and even as recent as Saturday night (the day before it closed) had a packed patio of diners around dinner time.
