Swoon List: 5 Things We Adore Right Now

  1. The Penne Medici at downtown’s new Lorenzo’s Ristorante (15 E. Maryland St., 317-635-3096), tossed with roasted chicken, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, and capers.
  2. The crock of bubbling-hot spinach dip served with warm, salty tortillas at Champions (350 W. Maryland St., 405-6111).
  3. The vibrantly colored, chocolate-dipped fortune cookies made by Fort Wayne-based Fancy Fortune Cookies. They come in flavors—the orange ones taste like citrus, the green ones like mint, and the red ones like amaretto!
  4. Mango sorbet on a bed of pineapple “carpaccio” (paper-thin slices, you see) at Divvy (71 W. City Center Drive, Carmel, 317-706-0000).
  5. The crazy-hot horseradish-spiked mustard that comes with an order of hot pretzels at The Rathskeller (401 E. Michigan St., 317-636-0396). We double-dog dare you to eat a spoonful.
