20 Reasons We Love Indiana
Bloomington's food scene
Bloomington (metro population: 185,000) offers a surprisingly diverse food scene. Indiana University students congregate at laid-back spots such as wrap shop Laughing Planet. More compelling, however, is the depth of Bloomington's dining scene, which relies heavily on local products. At eateries such as Farmbloomington, Restaurant Tallent and Scholars Inn, you'll find an array of intriguing dishes from saffron walleye to a pomegranate-kissed filet mignon.
