Five things we’re craving right now.
A small but dense carrot cake that does not skimp on the silky cream-cheese icing, topped with candied nuts and presented on a honey-drizzled plate at Union 50 (620 N. East St., 317-610-0234).
The warm beef empanadas from Elena Ruz Cuban Cuisine (2201 E. 46th St., 317-828-7068), cooled with cilantro cream sauce.
A Wednesday-night supper special at Stella (608 Massachusetts Ave., 317-685-2550) featuring a caveman-worthy beef short rib with super crispy Spanish-style potatoes.
