Road Trip

So, yesterday Garance and I decided to turn our staycation in New York into a road trip.  We hopped into a rental car and headed west to Indianapolis for a Bazbeaux pizza.

 

As most of you in Indiana know, Bazbeaux is one of the top-rated restaurants in Indianapolis.  I happened to have been there at its very beginning, when it opened alongside clothing store Verve in 1986.  Working at Verve made me an unofficial and happy taste tester for the novelty pizzas.
Meanwhile, Garance is happy to report that my build up of the place was deserved: the pizza is amazing.

    You drove to INDIE?! Wow that’s quite the road trip, spur of the moment! I’m flying from Colorado to Indie’s western neighbor, central Illinois, tomorrow… and I’m so glad I’m not driving. But I do wish I was close enough to try this pizza! Danville, IL is as close as I’ll get. Thanks for sharing!

    That pizza is too stuffed :o maybe because I’m used to eating italian pizza :D

    Few things in life are better than pizza. And this one looks superb. September energy found me at my home oven yesterday making some of my own. Hardly as photogenic as the one you serve up.

    I’m a huge fan of this blog and live in Indy! Another place you should go to while you’re here is Yats (Cajun food) and Broad Ripple Vintage for shopping/good place to find stylish people in Indy!

    You drove to Indy!? That’s where I live and yes Bazbeaux never disappoints! Do you plan to take pictures while visiting (street style or otherwise) and will you post them? I have to say it’s hard to find people here with GREAT street style but visiting the Mass Ave and Broad Ripple neighborhoods might be a good place to start.

    That sounds like a long way to drive for pizza. I’m glad it was delicious. I haven’t had any great pizza in a long time.

    On your way back from Indianapolis, you should exit I-80 in Youngstown and give Wedgewood Pizza a shot. It’s the best of the best, in a town full of greats.

    I’m from Indianapolis, but have lived in Jersey City for the past 6 years. I must agree with your assessment of Bazbeaux’s Pizza–I always make sure I get there on my visits home. The Quattro Formaggio pizza & spinach salad are delicious! Thanks for getting the word out about a true Indy gem!

    I live many, many miles away from Indy these days, but I do recall Bazbeaux’s pizza served in that decrepit old house, close to the fire station and the Broad Ripple canal, as being the best. Long may it rule! Also, glad you’re sharing the love……

    What a cool coincidence, I worked at Bazbeaux during the same time and shopped at Verve. I think the oldest piece of clothing I have is a t-shirt from there (Matinique).

    If you cruise all the way to the Bay Area, try Little Star pizza on Solano Ave in Albany, Ca (right next to Berkeley) – super good! After taste-testing all the pizza around town, this one wins by a mile.

    Love! Love! As a fellow Hoosier living in NYC, I can completely appreciate this! I always stop by Bazbeaux’s when I’m at home for a visit. I miss the old Mass Ave location though but mostly for nostalgic reasons…and my unabashed love of the old decorative wall painting.
    Hope you have been able introduce Garance to the gastronomic wonder of the hoosier pork tenderloin sandwich, as well. I’ve always thought that would make for the greatest food truck ever! Thanks for the fun post today!

    If you’re still in Indiana and in the mood for a great pizza hop on I 70 west to Terre Haute and visit Wise Pies at 6 south 6th street. Its new york style pizza and has a great atmosphere!

    If you’re still in Indiana you should go to one of the farmer’s markets Saturday morning! (I would suggest the Carmel Farmer’s Market hehe) Anyway, gotta love Bazbeaux, especially their quattro formaggio and the special! YUM

    Hurrah for Indianapolis! We ate at Bazbeaux’s Pizza twice when we were Stateside this summer. Did you also encounter the lovely homeless man positioned outside the old Bazbeaux’s who directs confused patrons across the street to the new premises? I loved that man.

    No way you and Garance were in Indy! I would have loved to meet you (especially Garancé I must admit). As for the pizza, there a couple new places, like Napolitsno where I think the pizza is really great. I am involved with a society supporting the Textile and Fashion Arts section of the Indianapolis Museum of Art and I we would be thrilled to have you as a speaker if you feel like coming back for another pizza :).

    As a lifelong Indy resident, I’m glad that you featured Bazbeaux. On your next trip, please consider going to both Amici’s near Lockerbie Square and Maria’s in Fountain Square as they are, in my opinion, the two best places in town.

    Indiana is not the state for food. We just about starved the seven weeks we were there, just got back. I think the casserole was born there. However, having been to Indianapolis two weeks ago, I would have to say it is a wonderful oasis in the state. Bloomington as well.

    I loved seeing that gorgeous cheesy pizza as soon as I checked up on your site today. Indy has several really good home-grown pizza joints. I’m heading to Jockamo’s Upper Crust in Irvington for lunch today in fact. Would love it if you’d post a style shot from our shared hometown some day… while Indy’s not exactly known for cutting edge street style, it’s full of stylish men and women not overly concerned with what’s going on in NYC or anywhere else for that matter.

    When my wife and I were first married in ’97 we lived in Indy and she worked around the corner from Bazbeaux’s. At least once a week we’d meet there for lunch. Great memories of their pizza. Thanks for sharing this post!

    That pizza is good, but…fancy. A true Indiana guilty pleasure? Pizza King. The one where a model train delivers the drinks. The pizza is terrible for you, but it’s so easy to eat over half a large pizza on one’s own.

    You yankees should stop calling anything round and vaguely tomato-ish pizza! ;) This pizza is ugly! I really hope it tastes much better than it looks!

    Also, there’s no such thing as a “PIZZA ALLA QUATTRO FORMAGGIO”… it’s “PIZZA AI QUATTRO FORMAGGI”.

    with 1 kind of cheese -> al formaggio
    with >1 kind of cheese -> ai formaggi

    An Indianapolis pizza tradition. If you are ever in Indy try them out. You want be disappointed. They have a downtown Indianapolis location as well.

    Wow! You are taking me back! Verve in Indy! I lived there and managed Gidding Jenny’s Left Bank. Thank you for sharing this snippet from your road trip. Lots of great memories from those days……
    Atlas Supermarket, The Vu…..and on and on.

    Pizza King!! I was hoping someone would bring up that Indiana staple. Pizza King just does the trick. Whenever I’m in Indiana I have to have a pie.

    i grew up on 65th and College. Bazbeaux’s and the Alley Cat I never left Broad Ripple Village. You should’ve tried Taste, Petit Chou, Good Morning Mamma’s while you were there – best breakfast foods EVER!!!

    Long time fan first time commenter. If you are looking for some sartorial flare come by the Broad Ripple Farmers Market on Saturdays 8-12p. You will be impressed by all the totes and Toms. Also, Lick is the best artisanal ice cream you will ever have. Enjoy the rest of your trip and thanks for sharing some of your experiences.

    You started in Indy? That’s amazing. I’m from Indy (currently studying in Bloomington) and I wish people here were more interested in fashion. I want to work in the fashion industry at some point (as a writer or publisher) and sometimes it’s hard to imagine anyone from my humble hoosier background finding any success in it. I love Indiana and I’ll always be fond of it, but it’s inspirational to see someone like yourself who now has such an interesting, international life coming out of the midwest! It sounds clichĂ©, but finding out that a prominent fashion industry figure like yourself has something in common with me is inspirational.

    As an Indianpolis native… one of my absolute favorite restaurants. Miss Indy and Broadripple everyday.

    I’m a little late, but I love seeing this nonetheless…Bazbeaux has been my spot since high school, more than 15 years ago…I still make it a point to go there when I get back to Indy. I miss the original garage, but I love the place anyway. I will soon be taking my fiance there and cannot wait- his first time in the US; Bazbeaux will be our first stop in Indy, that’s for sure! Love, love, love! Thanks so much for posting this.

    Hi, Scott:

    Fellow Hoosier here – had my first Bazbeaux a couple months ago. It was good, but not out of the ordinary. Moving back to Peru in a couple months. Stop in next time you’re in the area.
