Swoon List: Union 50, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, and More

The Swoon List compiles our latest food-and-drink favorites. They’re not ranked, just delicious.

 

From the Bistro menu selections at Union 50 (620 N. East St., 317-610-0234): a savory jumble of squash gnocchi tossed with roasted cauliflower, warm Marcona almonds, raisins, and kalettes (a new fusion veggie of Brussels sprouts and kale). A swoop of fennel-ricotta puree pulls all of the flavors together.
