Minority Business Highlight: The Block Bistro & Grill

The Block Bistro & Grill, a cuisine hotspot in Indianapolis, is owned and run by Executive Head Chef Terry Anthony.

The family-style restaurant, which also has a private cocktail lounge, officially opened in 2021 in the William H. Block Building. Although Anthony received a degree in business from Murray State University, he decided to use his degree to pursue his love for food in the form of running a restaurant in 2015.

The Block Bistro & Grill specializes in affordable, classic American comfort food, serving up dishes — such as chicken sandwiches, burgers, salmon, nachos and fish and chips — and adding a little bit of soul and an urban twist.

Beyond the brick-and-mortar, the Block also offers catering for events and festivals, such as Walker Legacy Center’s Juneteenth Brunch, and offers weekly Sunday Brunch Block Parties from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Anthony has been a guest chef for the Indiana Pacers, a traveling caterer for IndyCar and the Indianapolis 500, and the tailgate chef for the 2022 College Football National Championship. His cooking creations have also been featured on Fox59’s “IndyNow” and Season 16 of the Food Network’s “The Great Food Truck Race.”

The Block Bistro & Grill is located at 118 W. Market St. For more information and to view the full menu, visit To get in contact, call 317-932-9200 or email
