By Melissa McEwen in Food on Jan 19, 2015 7:00PM

This week feast your eyes on delights like passion fruit s'mores from Veruca, cassoulet at Webster's wine bar and the tacos at Rubi's (did you know Maxwell Street Market is open in the winter? It is).

“Marshmallow has been on my mind (Veruca Hot Chocolate!), so my thoughts naturally turned to S'Mores! Specifically, Passion Fruit S'Mores." at Veruca Chocolates

Pate at Vera

"Our new Cassoulet is racking up fans, who are enjoying it paired with the 2010 Domaine des Tours, Grenache blend, Vin de Pays de Vaucluse, France From the storied Reynaud family, this wine is a revelation in what traditional vineyard management and winemaking practices can achieve. Lush and rustic at once, with olives, black pepper, pedigreed tannins" at Webster's Wine Bar

"Tea Smoked Duck Breast with Chinese Broccoli & Steamed Buns” at BellyQ

“Confit of Duck Raviolo. Rapini, Pine Nut, Toasted Butter. Hungry?” at A10

Public House's Sticky Cinnamon Buns

“Get your greens! A new salad graces our menu. Kale and broccoli, accompanied by vinegar soaked cherries, apples, avocado, radish, house made cashew cheese, seeds, and a lemon vinaigrette.” @ Owen & Engine

Taco at Rubi's

"Cornmeal Crepes with brown butter pear, fig, buttermilk cheese pistachio and honey." at The Southern

"Skrimps! With Szechuan peppercorn, lemongrass, and a tamarind malt vinegar dip" @ Mott St
