Swoon List: The Garden Table, R Bistro, and More
The Swoon List compiles our latest food-and-drink favorites. They’re not ranked, just delicious.
The Garden Table’s (908 E. Westfield Blvd., 317-737-2531) new Lyonnaise salad: warm purple potatoes tossed with hunks of bacon and radish slivers in a barely-there truffle-mustard vinaigrette. Pierce the poached egg perched on top to bind the flavors together.
Thin slices of moist date-bread French toast crowned with a scoop of nut-brittle ice cream at R Bistro (888 Massachusetts Ave., 317-423-0312).
Sweet coconut milk poured over crushed ice and topped with fresh coconut shavings at the eastside Mexican ice cream shop Delicias La Chocola (3809 English Ave., 317-986-5057).
The Historic Steer-In Diner’s (5130 E. 10th St., 317-356-0996) much-better version of the Big Mac, the Twin Steer, with two patties and a third bun sealed in place with cheese and mayo-based sauce.
Spice Box’s (719 Virginia Ave., 317-941-6077) fiery, tender goat tacos, exclusive to the new Fletcher Place outpost.
