Indigo describes its cuisine as "New American" that, like its somewhat more cosmopolitan cousin "Pan American," draws primarily from the cuisines of the Western Hemisphere. "New American" implies a certain reliance on comfort foods, and, in doing so, relies as much on substantive food as on innovative or experimental dishes. Like anything with the moniker "American," there is much room for interpretation as to what it signifies, and Indigo's range of entrees does little to define the restaurant's particular relationship with this broad-based cuisine. While there are the expected Californian sensibilities inherent in the preparation and ingredients (fresh local and organic produce, Asian and French influences), the menu also draws from Louisiana Creole, New England, and Caribbean.
