5 Things We Adore Right Now
  1. A thick square of peanut-butter brownie, chunked out with salted peanuts and chocolate shavings on top, at Fountain Square coffeehouse Funkyard (1114 Prospect St., 317-822-3865).

  2. Marco’s Restaurant & Lounge’s (2380 E. 54th St., 317-251-7000) Cajun Penne, loaded with red peppers and mushrooms. It’s tossed with a generous serving of shrimp and a kicky cayenne pepper sauce.

  3. An enormous three-cheese grilled panini (featuring pepper jack) at Henry’s Coffee Bistro (627 N. East St., 317-951-0335).

  4. The #57 pizza from the new downtown Napolese (30 S. Meridian St., 317-635-0765). The bubbly and charred pie comes with slightly sweet jowl bacon, hunks of tender chicken, roasted Brussels sprouts, and provolone.

  5. The succulent, hand-formed Apple Butta’ Backyard BBQ burger at Severin Bar (40 W. Jackson Place, 317-634-6664). Under melting Fair Oaks Farm cheddar, the meat is stacked with onion rings, coarse-cut slaw, and chewy strips of bacon—all mooshed inside a soft pretzel roll.
