Food enthusiasts got their first taste of the test kitchen Feb. 1 when its three food stands launched inside the Fishers District.

Fishers Test Kitchen is searching for a new restaurant concept to fill an accelerator space following the departure of Natural State Provision this week.

The Southern comfort food counter-service concept — one of three in the inaugural cohort at the culinary incubator at the Sun King Innovation Brewery in the Yard at Fishers District that launched in February — was asked to leave, said test kitchen co-founder John Wechsler, though he wouldn’t elaborate.

“We wish them well at King Dough,” he said. “This was time for us to bring another concept in.”

The move caught Natural State owners Adam and Alicia Sweet off guard, they said in an emailed statement.
