SoBro’s Next Door Eatery, which opened in an old Double-8 food store in the summer of 2018, has closed. Their demise comes during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is heavily impacting the restaurant industry in Indianapolis and across the country.
Kimbal Musk, the brother of famed billionaire Elon Musk, opened the American-cuisine restaurant aimed at being a family friendly neighborhood spot — offering quick service farm-to-table options.
