Indigo Palette is a restaurant and an art gallery located on the historic 4th street in downtown Sioux City. I had never heard of this place before and did not realize it was a restaurant. I had spent a lot of time next door at Tom Foolery’s but had no idea that the art gallery next door served food. I was anxious to see what the menu had to offer and to check out the beautiful art that they had hanging on their walls.
When you walk in you can see a lot of good pieces of art work. However, I was not there to check out the art even though it was good scenery for the restaurant. It had a very laid back feel to it. It seemed like a good place to go have a cup of coffee. That was the first thing I did as I waited for the rest of our group to show up. The cup of coffee was delicious and it was a very relaxing atmosphere to enjoy some coffee. The next thing I wanted to do was order an appetizer, but those can’t be ordered until after 4 p.m.
When I looked at the menu, I saw a lot of amazing things that looked very good. I wanted to go with their half pound burger because they put the cheese inside the burger not on top like every other burger I have ever had. You could pick the type of cheese that you wanted. I asked the waitress what she would prefer and she told me the cheddar was the best. She was a lot of help and that was the one that I chose. I am very happy that I did. I also ordered french fries for my side. When you order the half pound burger you have to give them 15 to 20 minutes to cook it. I will tell you that it is worth the wait. While I waited for my food I enjoyed a nice Blue Moon and just relaxed. I thought the restaurant was very relaxing and the art work was very cool to look at even though I am not a very artistic person. Once my food got there I couldn’t wait to bite into this half pound piece of meat sitting in front of me. It was one of the best burgers I have ever had. It melted in your mouth. The cheese on the inside was the most amazing thing ever. Their fries were also good and the right seasoning on them. I was too full for dessert. The burger was worth the 20 minute wait.
I would recommend this restaurant for anyone that is looking to either go relax for a nice cup of coffee in the morning, or someone looking to eat a good burger. The place is small so there is a chance of it being too full to find a seat, but that was not the case when I was there. The restaurant offered a good variety of food and I will definitely be going back.
