Ripple & Company
Downtown Lafayette, IN
Ripple & Company began as a complementary design to its sister restaurant, East End Grill, to answer the owner’s question "what more can we do?" Enter a restaurant with a more casual/relaxed atmosphere, the ability to accommodate larger private events, and the desire for more outdoor seating. With the flexibility provided by its prominent overhead folding doors, the entire downstairs is connected to the outdoors and entices Main Street pedestrians with the smells of delicious smoked meat and veggies. The second-floor space, designated for 70-person events, also provides this same flexibility with overhead rolling doors that open to an exterior 40-person patio and lounge. The added benefit of these industrial-inspired overhead doors, combined with traditional brick and cast stone, establishes Ripple & Co. as a part of the Upper Main Street Historic District.
