The Swoon List compiles our latest food-and-drink favorites. They’re not ranked, just delicious.
A new edition to Bru Burger Bar’s (410 Massachusetts Ave., 317-635-4278; 12901 Old Meridian St., Carmel, 317-975-0033) menu: the onion ring–topped Honey Chipotle BBQ Burger. Bacon, caramelized onions, white cheddar, and black-pepper mayo join forces with barbecue-sauced pulled pork. It gets messy!
A swig of summer: Ball & Biscuit’s (331 Massachusetts Ave., 317-636-0539) Pearl Jam, made with Pearl Plum Vodka, falernum syrup, and fresh-squeezed ruby-red grapefruit juice.
Bourbon-maple bacon picks served upright at Severin Bar (40 Jackson Pl., 317-634-6664).
A buttery goat-cheese galette topped with baby beets, grilled pears, and candied bacon, among the appetizers at Vida (601 E. New York St., 317-420-2323).
Hubbard & Cravens’s chocolate-chip scone—basically a breakfast cookie that tastes like a crunchy-sugary biscuit.
