The City Market and Eskenazi Health locations closed early in the pandemic, but the Eskenazi Health shop reopened Aug. 26.

“We’re devastated. We’re also angry, on our own behalf and for the many more small businesses who aren’t going to survive into a post-pandemic world.”
Duos’ exit is the latest in hard news for the area’s culinary scene.
Broad Ripple’s Seraphim Asian Grill, open only since June, closed Tuesday in hopes of returning next spring. And many restaurants in Indiana reported they don’t expect to continue operating beyond the next six months.
