It had been a while since I had driven through Covington Plaza on West Jefferson Blvd. to peruse its shops. I was pleasantly surprised to notice the numerous high-quality shops and cafes and stores located within it. While space does not permit me to mention each place in detail, I wanted to mention several by name, starting with the restaurants. Covington Plaza has some of the city’s best dining! Chappell’s Coral Grille (260-456-9652) is known for its fine seafood dishes. After being located in downtown Fort Wayne for several decades, it secured a convenient location in this spot in which thousands of people drive by daily. Plan to stop in soon. Catablu Grille now serves lunch from 11 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Evening meals are served from 4:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. 260.456.6563. The Olive Twist sells olive oil and balsamic vinegar condiments to enhance your home cooked culinary experiences. (260.436.3866). Visit their second location in Auburn or order online at www.theolivetwist.com. Taj Mahal and Yen Ching both offer delicious Asian influences with moderately priced menus. As for fashion, Covington Plaza has it covered. Ha! Jophiel Style is well-known for offering fine women’s clothing in Fort Wayne for many years. Susan’s was voted by participants of the Fort Wayne Newspapers Reader’s Choice Awards as the #1 Best Women’s Clothing Store and Boutique in Fort Wayne! B. Mitchel Fine Jewelry and Merle Norman and Sizzorworks Style Studios add accents to a great appearance. After an afternoon of shopping, skip just a few steps away to Woodhouse Day Spa. Just looking at the website for this place helps me relax! Indulge in a detoxifying seaweed wrap, organic sugar scrub pedicure and a rejuvenating Shirodhara scalp massage. Ah!
