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,

Shishito Peppers at Ra Sushi

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,
