Butler University has signed Metro Diner to be its third retail customer in the Sunset Avenue Parking Garage. The Jacksonville, Florida-based restaurant is scheduled to open a 3,800-square-foot location in early December next to Scotty’s Dawghouse and Pita Pit at 4702 Sunset Avenue.
“We’re glad to have Metro Diner on campus,” Butler Executive Director of External Relations Michael Kaltenmark said. “With the addition of Metro Diner, we now have excellent options for the Butler community, neighbors, and friends for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”
Metro Diner’s menu features “comfort food with flair”—items such as fried chicken and waffle, “Yo Hala on the Square” (two thick slices of challah bread stuffed with bananas, brown sugar, cream cheese and hazelnut syrup, prepared like French toast), and a signature meatloaf plate. The average check is $12 per person.
The Butler-based Metro Diner will be the company’s third in Indianapolis. One is at 3954 East 82nd Street, and the second is set to open at 7225 U.S. 31 on the southside.
“Metro Diner is the kind of place where last night is recalled over pancakes,” the company said. “Where the portions are big, but the egos are small. Where you don’t have to impress anyone and you can come as you are. The kind of place you’re proud to take out-of-town guests. We believe that when you care about the people you’re cooking for, it shows in the food.”
