Swoon List: Black Market, Turf, and More
A toasted sandwich filled with surprising flavors (potent roasted poblanos, slivers of green apple, sweet potatoes, and a smear of goat cheese) at Black Market (922 Massachusetts Ave., 317-822-6757).
Turf Catering & Kitchen’s (8155 Castleway Court West, 317-288-0173) juicy, salty butter-smoked chicken. The meat glides off the bone at the slightest touch and can be dipped by the piece into the sidecar of garlic cream sauce.
Fish Nanban at Asaka Japanese Restaurant (6414 82nd St., 317-576-0556 ): deep-fried red snapper with pickled onions and carrots.
Bluebeard’s (653 Virginia Ave., 317-686-1580) asiago bacon biscuit, a very stout version of the quick bread plopped in the middle of a bowl of spicy chorizo gravy. Garnished with cooling red onion and jalapeño, it is listed as an appetizer but qualifies as total comfort food in this weather.
The weekend-only ribs—with a massive meat-to-bone ratio and slathered in a thick, sticky, smoky, three-wet-wipe sauce—at Fat Dan’s (5410 N. College Ave., 317-600-3333; 410 E. Michigan St., 317-600-3008).
