A gourmet pizza joint opened last year in Fishers. If you haven't checked it out, you should! Local restaurateur Ed Sahm, along with business partners Ryan Bucksot and Bill Greenman, opened the restaurant with a menu of customizable pizzas featuring locally sourced meats and vegetables, baked pasta dishes, salads, house-made foccacia for sandwiches, wood-fired crackers and desserts. Gluten-free options also will be available.
Ed Sahm is a great guy, and sits on the Board of Directors of the Megan S Ott Foundation (an organization founded by my late friend, Megan, right before she lost her battle to Breast Cancer). I love supporting his restaurants, and haven't been to one that isn't great!

I can't say that everything in this restaurant is clean, but I can say it tastes fresh and they source local fresh ingredients. Their City Ham, Capacolla and Chorizo are from Goose the Market. Their chicken is Indiana Amish chicken which is free of any hormones or antibiotics and free range. They order how many whole chickens they will use for the week and they are delivered without ever hitting a freezer. Their pork shoulder is also from the same producers of their chicken. All meats are sourced from Indiana.

Another added bonus is that all of their sauces, dough, dressings and desserts are made in house daily.
Rockstone Pub serves a seasonally changing wine and beer menu with 24 local, regional and imported beer options on tap and 30 bottled beer varieties. Twenty-five wines wines are offered as well, along with sake and sangria cocktails.
The 4,800-square-foot restaurant seats 80 in the bar area and 40 in the family dining area. So if you are concerned with dining with a bunch of kids I can assure the areas are very separated.
