When choosing to spend your hard-earned money on a night out, you want more than just delicious food and drinks. You want a warm, welcoming space to create memories. This has been Paul Arechiga’s goal from the start.

“The goal since day one has been to offer our clientele delicious food and refreshing beverages in a setting they find not only beautiful but welcoming and relaxing,” says Arechiga, owner and founder of Verde.

Verde’s Fishers location opened in 2017 when Arechiga took his years of experience in the restaurant industry and set out to reinvent the way Central Indiana sees Mexican food. “I grew up working and managing Mexican restaurants from a young age.” said Arechiga, “so when I opened my own business, I wanted to put a fun spin to it.”

Verde’s goal of offering authentic Mexican cuisine alongside a unique and memorable guest experience has clearly been a hit, as the team has expanded from their original Fishers location to Carmel, Indianapolis, and most recently, Zionsville.

Why should fans of one Verde location stop by another? Each location offers a beautiful and unique atmosphere. “We love connecting our food and cocktails to an overall experience, so I’d invite our guests to visit our different locations and decide which one is their favorite,” shared Arechiga. “Although we are the same brand, geography has a strong impact on each of our restaurants, so you will find some Verde stores to be more suitable for families while others offer more of a night life atmosphere.”

While each location’s atmosphere is a prime focus of the Verde team, the food remains at the forefront with a constantly evolving seasonal menu. As Arechiga says, “Mexican cuisine has so much to offer! We like switching things up to feature a variety of recipes.”

After six years in the Central Indiana restaurant scene, Paul Arechiga’s mission remains the same: “We hope people allow themselves a few hours to sit back, relax and let us guide them through a culinary experience.”
