Salt Selection at Nora’s Wine Bar & Osteria

Presented to each table, the salt selection is an added touch that helps the popular local joint stand out. The most noticeable is the gray Salish salt imported from Washington state; the smokey flavor complements grilled meat. The Murray River Australian pink salt is light and buttery and performs best sprinkled on fish and vegetables. The most traditional of the trio is the all-natural Maldon white salt from Essex, England. Complimentary, 1031 S Rampart Blvd., 940-6672, NorasWineBar.com.

Tapas Without Borders

By Max Jacobson

Beso, Eva Longoria’s dramatically designed restaurant at the edge of Crystals mall in CityCenter, has been largely ignored by the food press. So I decided to take a look, and was pleasantly surprised by what I discovered. Advertisements refer to it as a steak house and, indeed, the Harris Ranch Beef served here is great. I tried the 16-ounce filet and the 22-ounce bone-in rib-eye, charred medium-rare, and both were flavorful, tender and juicy. The massive Harris Ranch is on Interstate 5 in central California. You smell it before you see it, if you drive by.
