"The original Bazbeaux opened in Broad Ripple on May 12, 1986 in an old decrepit house that had been the home of the gravedigger for the town cemetery.
The restaurant quickly became famous in the village for fresh-made, delectable pizzas served on the rickety decks next to the canal and the fire station. By the end of the first year the restaurant had earned its first in an unbroken string of "Best Pizza in Indianapolis" awards.
In 1989 Bazbeaux ventured downtown to help establish the district now known as the Indianapolis downtown arts district. Massachusetts Avenue is now home to many unique and interesting retail shops, restaurants and music venues.
In May 2003, exactly 17 years since opening in Broad Ripple, Bazbeaux moved just a few steps away from its original location — with more seating throughout the restaurant, beautiful surroundings and a larger kitchen that consistently turns out delicious, made-to-order pies."
