INDIANAPOLIS -

Colorado-based The Kitchen Restaurant Group has announced plans to transform a former South Broad Ripple grocery store in Indianapolis into a new, farm-to-table restaurant. Next Door, which will be the company's second restaurant in Indianapolis, is slated to open in November. The company was co-founded by Kimbal Musk, the brother of business magnate Elon Musk.

The restaurant, described as an urban casual American eatery, will fill a hole in the nearly century-old building, which formerly housed a Double 8 Foods grocery store. The building was constructed in the 1920s and originally served as a Kroger Market.

The Kitchen Restaurant Group says the restaurant and bar will be able to accommodate 120 guests inside and 50 on the patio. It is expected to employ between 50 and 60.

"Our team jumped at the opportunity to be in this iconic space and part of the revival of the SoBro neighborhood," said Don Degnan, president of The Kitchen Restaurant Group. "Next Door is a perfect fit for this space as a gathering place for the community, serving real food from American farmers."

The company previously announced it is opening Hedge Row, an American bistro-style restaurant on Mass Ave in Indianapolis. Hedge Row is expected to open in October and could also have up to 60 workers.

      The long war against drug addiction continues to rage, with the opioid crisis representing the latest front of the battle. As with any long fight, our strategy must change as the forces of death and destruction find new ways to attack those most vulnerable. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 68% of the 70,200 drug overdose deaths in 2017 involved an opioid – six times higher than in 1999.
