Bee Coffee Roasters’ (201 S. Capitol Ave., 317-426-2504; 5510 Lafayette Rd., 317-280-1236) cheekily named “Basic Bee” is a take on the PSL, but smoother and with an emphasis on the nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon. There’s nary a hint of pumpkin, but you won’t miss it.
Heirloom-tomato plate from Bluebeard (653 Virginia Ave., 317-686-1580) with roasted corn, cucumber, Spanish olives, arugula, shallots, boursin, croutons, and a butternut vinaigrette.
The Discada platter at Cholita (1001 Broad Ripple Ave., 317-389-5555): five grilled meats and all the fixings for build-your-own tacos—feeds a lot more than the promised four to six.
The wine-based Italian Amaro, Cardamaro, is the sweet, oaky base for Gavel Curated Cafe’s (902 Virginia Ave., 317-681-2086) High Fashion cocktail, a smooth slow-sipper enhanced with ginger turmeric syrup, Angostura, and orange bitters.
