The Swoon List compiles our latest food-and-drink favorites. They’re not ranked, just delicious.
The risoles at Open Society Public House (4850 N. College Ave., 317-999-8706)—crispy, artichoke-stuffed fritters with lime aioli.
The Goldilocks of brisket: slow-smoked and tender, but with a nice chew, piled onto a charred bun with a squiggle of barbecue sauce and pickles at Fat Dan’s (5410 N. College Ave., 317-600-3333; 410 E. Michigan St.).
The tangy-sweet kale salad at The Eagle (310 Massachusetts Ave., 317-929-1799), tossed in cider vinaigrette and strewn with apples, cheddar, bourbon-soaked raisins, and cornbread croutons.
A slice of toast crowned with sunny-side-up eggs and a bubbling layer of Swiss, dotted with asparagus and drizzled with truffle oil at Taste Cafe (5164 N. College Ave., 317-925-2233).
Garlicky, salty, addictive pommes frites at Brugge Brasserie (1011 E. Westfield Blvd., 317-255-0978), served with your choice of dipping sauces, ranging from hot curry to fresh-herb pesto.
