5 Things We Adore Right Now
  1. A glossy dark chocolate bar flavored with warm pumpkin spice and textured with the tiniest nibs of almond, one of two just-released seasonal flavors from Endangered Species Chocolates.
  2. The house salad at Shoefly Public House (122 E. 22nd St., 317-283-5007). No ordinary plate of greens, it’s tossed with capers, chopped egg, Parmesan, and the crisp snap of asparagus and picnic-sliced radishes and dressed simply (but eloquently) with lemon and olive oil.
  3. Good Morning Mama’s (1001 E. 54th St., 317-255-3800) butternut squash soup with peas.
  4. Thick, hot, meaty cornmeal-crusted catfish with a chunk of cornbread and two sides (greens and black-eyed peas for us) at Big Fella’s (3469 N. College Ave., 317-672-75360).
  5. The ever-evasive Thai Peanut Etouffee at Yats.
