  1. The vegetarian BLT from The Owlery in Bloomington, thin strips of crispy fried tofu served on thick-cut farm bread with tangy house mayo, fresh avocado, and—well, you know the rest. 
  2. Frozen-treat bicycle cart Nicey Treat’s Nice Dream popsicle, fresh-squeezed orange juice around a creamy vanilla center.
  3. Grand Marnier brioche french toast for breakfast at Restaurant at the Villa (1456 N. Delaware St., 317-916-8500), sweet, boozy, and caramelized on the edges.
  4. Chicken tacos garnished with just chopped cilantro and onions at La Parada (1638 E. New York St., 317-917-0095).
  5. Crisp, starchy tonstones, twice-fried discs of mashed plantains served with garlicky aioli for dipping at Black Acre Brewing Co. (5632 E. Washington St., 317-207-6266) for Sunday brunch.
