Conner’s Kitchen + Bar is what happens when you take something classic and kick it up a notch.

We call this concept A Higher Class of Casual, and it’s right in that restaurant sweet spot — just approachable enough for the traditional patron, yet just elevated enough for a more adventurous palate.

It makes a lot of sense when you’ve had a taste of the signature brunch, the inspired cocktails, or the dinner menu that’s not afraid to take comfort food a bit outside of its comfort zone.

Marketing materials follow a similar formula. The video and photography is food art in its finest form, with tantalizing shots of macaroni in motion and saucy closeups greeting you on the website. Meanwhile, the brand is even bolder in its recruiting message; potential new hires may receive a business card that simply says “You’re Talented AF.”

Conner’s Kitchen + Bar hit the ground running adjacent to the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, and recently opened its second location in Fort Wayne, Indiana connected to the Courtyard Fort Wayne Downtown and Conner’s Rooftop at the newly-opened Hampton Inn & Suites Fort Wayne.  We’re confident that more cities are ready to get down with A Higher Class of Casual.
