Having smoked hundreds of pounds of pork products a week at Smoking Goose, Chef Natalie now produces her own sausage to accompany Rize's Farm Eggs plate, amongst others. "We select the farms and we grow most produce in our own greenhouse," adds the chef. "Our menu is good and good for you. I hope the community here sees we genuinely want to offer a healthier option." In keeping with CRG's commitment to sustainability and locally sourced ingredients, Rize's menu offers products from Gunthorp Farms, Fischer Farms, Tulip Tree Creamery and many other resources, all passionate partners in regional restaurant development in Indianapolis. Rize's menu showcases locally grown produce from CRG's own CRG Grow Greenhouse. Located on Indianapolis' near Southside, CRG Grow uses vertical hydroponic growing towers that supply the restaurant with fresh ai basil, watercress and greens for lighter-fare menu items. Although Rize is still in its infancy, such has been its immediate success that we should not be too surprised to see additional locations opening in the future. It is a concept ripe for replication, and in a market where top-notch breakfast is a relative rarity, it's also long overdue. sl Rize is located in the Ironworks Hotel, at 2721 East 86th Street.
