If your significant other offers to pick up dinner from A Forkable Feast, “Surprise me” is your ideal directive. Sure, they’ve got turkey clubs, meatloaf on ciabatta, curry chicken salad, a bacon lover’s wood-fired pizza, and a selection of seasonal soups. But the real magic is in the weekly menu of take-home entrées, veggie sides, and decadent desserts crafted by Chef James Demaree (left). Recent trips yielded hanger steak au poivre, spare ribs in a black cherry glaze, and chicken pesto. We’ve also spotted gluten-free tortellini, tofu stir-fry with grilled baby bok choy, and pumpkin ravioli with browned butter and fresh sage. Plan to pick up a dessert—chocolate mousse, traditional bread pudding with caramel drizzle, ginger whoopee pies, and cookies (think sugar, oatmeal, and regular and gluten-free chocolate chip) cap off a tasty scratch-cooked meal or make for a mean midnight snack. Tired of leaky Styrofoam containers in the car? Forkable Feast has you covered. Their sealed trays are a stroke of logistical genius—keeping the food tidy and fresh and making the guaranteed 10-minute warm-up a breeze, whether you microwave or go the conventional oven route. But be forewarned, they close up shop promptly at 6 p.m. on weeknights, meaning you better master the rush-hour hustle.

3663 Madison Rd., Oakley, (513) 871-8646, $7–$12, aforkablefeast.com. Lunch Mon–Sat, dinner Mon–Fri.
