CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - East 4th Street is filling up again after several restaurants shut down during the pandemic.

One of the newest editions to the dining destination is Indie.

The “new kid on the block” is a local indie music-themed dining room that specializes in Southern comfort food and offers a music-themed cocktail menu.

Indie has a Grunge Brunch Saturday afternoons, and Sunday brunch with themes like 90s hip hop to classic rock.

Owner Gabe Zeller shared a recipe from their menu for shrimp creole with fresh pasta.

This seafood boil at Indie East 4th holds the key to another dish on the menu, the Shrimp Creole 🍤. It’s the creole broth! See how it’s made coming up on #CleCooks this Friday and Sunday on Cleveland 19 News.
