Famous Indianapolis soul food restaurant set to reopen



Indianapolis, Indiana – On Thursday, a well-known Indianapolis soul food classic will reopen in its original location.

The Kennedy-King neighborhood restaurant Kountry Kitchen Soul Food Place, which closed in January 2020 due to structural damage from fire, is scheduled to reopen on Thursday, October 19.

Thursday morning’s ribbon-cutting ceremony is by invitation only, and VIP attendees will include Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. Official business hours for the restaurant located at 1831 N. College Avenue will begin at 5:00 p.m. You can make reservations on the restaurant’s website, which is advised.

The family-run Kountry Kitchen, which first opened its doors in 1988, was put out of business for a spell due to the fire and the pandemic, and the owners were unsure if it was worthwhile to rebuild and reopen.

Co-owners Isaac and Cynthia Wilson were persuaded to reopen on the same site with a new 12,000-square-foot structure that features an in-house event hall dubbed the 910 North Event Center by an outpouring of verbal and financial support from the neighborhood and corporate community.
