Tender but with just the right amount of spring and snap left in them, a dish of green shishito peppers is the ideal way to kick off a meal at Ra Sushi. The plump peppers are sautéed with garlic and tossed with black sesame seeds, togarashi, sriracha and Tsuyu No Moto (seasoned soy sauce). They run the gamut from mild to the occasional spicy surprise, but mostly they just deliver a satisfying warmth that will rev you up for the sushi that’s to come. $7, in Fashion Show, 696-0008, RaSushi.com.
