Swoon List: 5 Things We Adore Right Now

  1. Cinnamon oatmeal cookies from Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company (1021 Broad Ripple Ave., 317-255-5151). The four warm cookies, made with spent grains from the brewery, are perfect for those who enjoy a less sweet treat.
  2. The Big Nasty from McAlister’s Deli. Over a third of a pound of tender, Black Angus roast beef served open-face on a toasted baguette with black peppered-gravy and cheddar-jack cheese.
  3. Seoul Grill’s rice bowl with fiery daegi-gogi (spicy pork) and a side of kimchi.
  4. Arugula and apple salad from Napolese (114 E. 49th St., 317-925-0765). The peppery leaves come dressed with juicy apples, radishes, creamy goat cheese, and toasted almonds.
  5. Cherry ale from Great Crescent Brewery in Aurora. Made with tart Midwestern cherries, it has light and tart cherry notes, finished with a mild sweetness. Available at Kahn’s.
