LouVino: Southern-influenced Small Plates
Chad and Lauren Coulter, owners of Louisville’s popular dining hot spot LouVino, has opened the doors of their first Indianapolis-area location at 8626 E. 116th St. in Fishers. Boasting elevated Southern-influenced small plates and new interpretations of classic wines, the restaurant serves dinner Tuesday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. In January, weekday lunch and weekend brunch will also be offered with expanded hours. Located in The Switch development, the Fishers’ restaurant marks the third location for LouVino, adding to two locations in Louisville opened in 2014 and 2016.

LouVino is known for its award-winning wine list with flights named after local celebrities including Peyton Manning and Axl Rose, and more than 70 options available by the glass. Five temperature-controlled automated wine stations behind the bar hold perfectly chilled favorites. Crave-worthy dishes from executive chef Tavis Rockwell include shareable plates divided into snacks, land, aquatic, veggies and sweets categories on the menu. Loaded baked potato stuffed tots, salmon and Asiago gnocchi, warm Brussels sprouts salad with sweet potato chili salsa and cilantro lime vinaigrette, bourbon chocolate beignets and bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin are just a few of the options praised by diners. Prices range from $6 to $19.
The rustic-modern designed space seats 120 indoors and an additional 30 on the patio. This year, Buzzfeed named LouVino "Best Wine Bar" in Kentucky and Southern Living recognized it as one of the "The South’s Best Brunches."
LouVino’s reinvented Southern-inspired cuisine from executive chef Tavis Rockwell focuses on shareable small plates complemented by approachable yet refined wines in new interpretations, including more than 70 options by the glass.
