New Pointe spots

Two more restaurants are joining Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill and Burger Fi at Jefferson Pointe.

The southwest mall’s website has Yats listed as coming soon. A fast casual concept, Yats serves Cajun Creole fare. Dishes include chili cheese etouffee with crawfish, gumbo, jambalaya and white chicken chili.

There’s no word yet on where Yats will be at the mall, and an email requesting more information was not immediately returned.

Yats got its start in 2001 when Joe Vuskovich, a New Orleans restaurateur, decided to come out of retirement. The first location was on College Avenue in Indianapolis.

California-based Taps Fish House and Brewery plans to open in October next to Talbots, according to a spokesperson for Jefferson Pointe.

Taps has three locations in California and one opening soon in Arizona, according to its website. More information will be available soon.
