Fill up on these delicious plates in this week’s Swoon List, our weekly roundup of the five things we’re currently craving.
Spicy tuna laid over sushi rice and topped with everything that isn’t nailed down—from wakame to spicy crab to slivered watermelon radishes—at the new IUPUI-adjacent Ali’I Poke (910 W. 10th St., 317-602-3632). Be sure to ask for an extra shake of Furikake seasoning to take the funky sesame flavor up a notch.
The Sunday-only bialy from Bagel Fair (1300 E. 86th St., 317-846-0950) is a flat bagel topped with onions, poppy seeds, and salt. Pro-tip: Call ahead to have a few saved back for you.
A duo of tacos, carnitas (left) and asado (right), from Pancho’s Mexican Taqueria (9658 Allisonville Rd., 317-585-8427), dressed with onions, cilantro, pico, and creamy green salsa.
Blue Sushi Sake Grill at the Ironworks Hotel (2721 E. 86th St., 317-489-3151) dishes up two sushi options with the Crunchy L.A. roll: crab mix, avocado, cucumber, crispy panko, and sweet chili sauce, and Philadelphia roll: smoked salmon or raw salmon, cream cheese, scallion, and cucumber.
From one hotel eatery to another, Osteria Pronto at the JW Marriott Hotel (10 S. West St., 317-860-5777) makes a meaty meal out of classic Italian meatballs, tomato sauce, and toasted sourdough bread.
