Stardust Terrace

This past Thursday Pat and I decided to go to the Indiana Historical Society and try the Stardust Terrace Cafe for lunch.The cafe is named  in remembrance of Hoagy Carmichael;a famous Hoosier song writer,performer and actor.Among the many tunes he wrote you can include Stardust;hence the name.The place is attractive,neat and well-appointed and has a beautiful terrace overlooking the Downtown Canal.The food is handled by Hoaglin Catering;which has a fine reputation;and I believe they have a place of their own on Mass.Ave.Most of their menu;while extensive;is sandwich assembly.Now don’t get me wrong;I’m a big fan of nicely prepared sandwiches;and their selections were varied as well as interesting;we were just in the mood for some cookin’.And we had it on good authority they make a nice Quiche.And contrary to that old Playboy story;real men DO eat quiche.As you well know Pat CAN NOT eat onion;his body gets all weird ;so he asked about their quiche options and was reassured that the veggie one was onion free.Oops;not quite.He had to pull the thing apart to get out the onions;just to eat.He didn’t make a big deal about it;he is used to it.Lesson time kids;if you work a kitchen, and your kitchen builds something, know what is in it.If you don’t know just say so.I on the other hand can,and will eat damn near anything.My quiche was of the ham and cheddar cheese variety,Pat’s was supposed to be of the roasted red pepper and mozzarella cheese variety.Neither one was teeming with non egg ingredients.As under whelming as the filling was the crust was as exciting as tap water,and as tasty.The only thing that saved the lunch was the large soup cup of fresh fruit that came with the quiche.Fresh melon,strawberries,blueberries and even a little taste of pineapple.Beautiful.Oh and the chocolate brownie we got to share.A moist fudgie square with chocolate chips;delicious.If they made it, good for them,if they didn’t, no matter, they had the good taste to buy it.I wouldn’t discount this place for lunch though, by no means.The selection of sandwiches they offer is really impressive.I know I’ll be back,by myself or maybe with my daughter-in-law;they have ham salad and a good ham salad is a thing of beauty.Stardust Terrace Café By Hoaglin To Go on Urbanspoon
