Petite Chou in Broad Ripple reopening after May flooding
A popular north side restaurant is getting ready to reopen after being closed for six months due to extensive flood damage.
A spokesperson for Petite Chou Cafe says plans are to reopen the Broad Ripple restaurant by the end of November.
Petite Chou, one of nine area restaurants owned by Martha Hoover, was forced to close in May following a flash flood in Broad Ripple.
It happened after a heavy rainstorm. Nearby flood gates along the White River that should have been open were closed backing up storm water along Westfield Boulevard.
While several businesses sustained water damage, none was as bad as Petite Chou. The restaurant filled with a foot of water.
On a different note, Hoover plans to open her tenth restaurant at the Fashion Mall. She will open another Napolese in the new Fashion Cafe in 2013.
Napolose is known for its "artfully-made pizza." The first one opened on 49th Street in Indianapolis. Another is planned for South Meridian.
