The Sleeping Giant

Look at the skyline of Evansville and you can’t miss the goliath that is the Fifth and Main building. Towering over Downtown at 248 feet (18 stories in total), the building is the tallest in the area for at least 120 miles. It is touted as Evansville’s first true skyscraper. Completed in 1970, it was a marvel for all in the city to lay eyes on. However, since 2004, the building has sat nearly vacant; the former headquarters for Old National Bank has seen few tenants take up office space since the bank moved to its new riverfront location.

Here, we’ve listed some of our favorites that came on the dining scene this year.
