Seems like every time you turn around there's a new outpost of the Japanese mini-chain Naked Tchopstix. This year saw the opening of a food court location, Ban by Naked Tchopstix, in the newly renovated Fashion Mall. Sushi is promptly made to order for beleaguered shoppers, and there's a hot bar, too, running $10 a pound. Plus, a full-scale restaurant should open later this summer in Anson, the master-planned community west of Zionsville. That makes, by our last count, four restaurants (in Broad Ripple, Carmel, Fort Wayne and Newport, Ky.), plus three food court locations (Fashion Mall, Hoosier Park in Anderson and the Airport).
Seven locations, 252-5555 (Broad Ripple) tchopstix.com
