Ruhe 152 Restaurant – Elkhart County

rueh 152 bar restaurant

Located in the small town of Nappanee, Indiana, Ruhe152 is a fine dining establishment that offers a unique and elevated dining experience.

Ruhe152 is a Bistro, Brewery, and Distillery offering a high end dining room experience, a taproom with bar seating, and an upper loft with a relaxed atmosphere and lounge furniture. You’ll have to try out each room to get the full experience!

The restaurant recently opened in 2022 after undergoing extensive development and all of this hard work resulted in Ruhe152 winning an Indiana State Builder’s Association Award for it’s modern design.

And modern it is! This restaurant will clearly stand out compared to the old traditional architecture of the Nappanee / Amish community.

Ruhe152 is a made from scratch kitchen, meaning they make all of their food in house from locally sourced, fresh ingredients. Head Chef David Michael is in charge of proving a wonderful dining experience with beautifully displayed food and tasty flavors.

Just looking at past reviews, Ruhe152 has no shortage of 5 star, positive reviews left by customers. The one caveat is this Bistro is on the more expensive side but the luxury designed interior provides that elegant, high end dining experience to justify the higher prices.
