The Swoon List compiles our latest food-and-drink favorites. They’re not ranked, just delicious.
Milktooth’s (534 Virginia Ave., 317-986-5131) warm, frittery, citrus-glazed doughnuts in a pool of creamed honey, garnished with chamomile granola.
The house-favorite side at Meridian Restaurant & Bar (5694 N. Meridian St., 317-466-1111): a shareable bowl of rich, creamy mac and cheese sprinkled with breadcrumbs.
The original, no-nonsense tacos al carbon at El Toro (1008 E. Main St., Brownsburg, 317-858-9994), loaded with bites of still-sizzling steak, cilantro, and chopped onion.
Lunch break during a shopping free-for-all at the Cincy-area Ikea (9500 IKEA Way, West Chester, Ohio, 888-888-4532): tender little Swedish meatballs in cream sauce with skins-on mashed potatoes, lingonberry jam, and a compressed veggie cake. Wash it down with malty swigs of the seasonal cola, Dryck Julmust.
The Woodford’s Pie at Napolese (see napolesepizzeria.com for locations), drizzled with rosemary oil instead of the traditional tomato sauce, and crowned with tangy goat cheese, provolone, new potatoes, and roasted onions.
