"It is 1929, as the reign of prohibition keeps the entire country dry for nearly a decade. In the center of a sleepy Midwestern town sits a grand yet discrete building seemingly as quiet and still as the surrounding fields. But with a flick of a secret switch and a whispered password, a panel opens revealing a sordid soiree of raucous revelry. The building hides more than just a clandestine speakeasy. It protects the secrets of a bygone era, concealing long forgotten mysteries in it's resplendent design and ornate decor. The underground gin joint is buzzing with excitement because tonight, at midnight, is when the building's original owner claimed he would return from the grave, exactly fifty years after his death. As the party begins, bootlegging beauties foxtrot with corrupt politicians, rabble-rousing flappers sip bathtub gin with big city mobsters, and impassioned Jazz singers serenade dolled up debutantes. The problem is, one of you is a murderer."

Topo's 403 is pleased to announce our Grand Re-Opening with new Head Chef Anthony Gabriele!
More info to come - check our calendar page for entertainment and join our mailing list on contact page for upcoming notifications! We have lots to tell you!
Topo’s 403 wishes to let our cherished loyal guests and the general public know that restaurant service will be closing temporarily to re-organize and re-staff. The restaurant will be closed effective January 20, 2015 through the end of January most likely. At this time, the restaurant plans to be open and prepared for Valentine’s Day, one of our most popular nights of the year for dining out.
Topo’s head chef recently left the restaurant for personal reasons. The restaurant is currently seeking qualified candidates to fill the position, and expects to hire new staff members to work under the new Chef as well, once that position is in place. All other staff will be returning to the restaurant with the re-opening.
“Topo’s will re-open “new and improved”, serving our signature style of Greek and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, all made in-house with the freshest and highest quality ingredients”, says Managing and Creative Director Stephanie Topolgus. “We have cultivated a loyal and happy following, who appreciate our unique menu, bar offerings, and casually elegant atmosphere within our historic property. We love our local music crowd, who have enthusiastically supported us as we have presented great local talent who bring so much vibrancy to our beloved old house. We hate to disappoint our guests during this down time, but are gearing up to come back in style, of course. We wholeheartedly thank our friends and community for their continued support.”
Join us for a very special and informal evening with Wolfgang Brendel, Kevin Murphy, and guest singers from IU Jacobs School of Music Opera Department, performing favorite vocal pieces from opera and operetta to musical theater and holiday classics. The evening of song will be served with a special 4-course tasting menu. $45 per person with 20% to benefit a student aid fund founded by Wolfgang Brendel for the Jacobs School of Music. A beautiful and intimate evening of song and good cheer, not to be missed! Please reserve early as seating will be limited.
We are so excited to be hosting our pal Mitch Shiner and 18 of his talented and accomplished Jacobs School of Music friends in his BloomingTones Big Band! Celebrate the end of the academic year and the imminent release of their CD Fly!.
The band will start at 8pm on our Walnut St patio, which is heated and tented for the occasion, so bring your dancing shoes!
Menu specials tonight include our Fly! Blue Mojito (Mitch's favorite) and Steak Frites, grass-fed organic hangar steak with house fries and oregano compound butter. Since we are partying on the patio, we're also serving Fried Chicken Wings with a choice of two sauces, and we are now stocking the beloved PBR in 16oz cans, $3!
