Change is in the air at downtown Angola’s fine-dining establishment. A 2014 rebranding of The Hatchery turned the place from a more exclusive establishment with strict dress code into a place where everyone’s welcome. Don’t be mistaken: The two-story redbrick building still houses a quality atmosphere with white tablecloths and a fireplace. But now you can choose your level of formality, from a casual deck and lounge to the upscale dining room. No matter where you sit, a refreshed culinary lineup will satisfy you. Starters include an addictive pairing of bacon-wrapped scallops and sweet potato fries. House sauces elevate dishes like wine-cherry glazed Indiana duckling and the dill-caper sauce that marries a French baked potato. Hand-cut steaks and flown-in seafood round out the new menu that adds a dash of spice to Angola’s dining scene.
