Grilled Artichokes at Nora’s Wine Bar & Osteria

Not exactly the giant softball-size variety known for numbing your palate to the subtleties of a fine wine. These grilled baby artichokes, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, are much smaller and perfect with a zesty, citrusy sauvignon blanc. With this dish you get plenty of those sweet, tender hearts wrapped in a few more mature leaves for dipping. The choke and stalk are edible and so delicious when they get a little caramelization on them from the grill. Dip in the proffered lemon aoli and marvel at this healthy, natural fast food. $12 for four halves, 1031 S. Rampart Blvd., 940-6672.

Naked Evader at Johnny McGuire’s

Don’t be alarmed by the name—the Naked Evader is simply a grilled pastrami sandwich with Swiss cheese, vegetables and mustard. But from the first bite, you’ll see why Johnny McGuire’s has been such a hit in Town Square in addition to its 20-year success story in Aspen, Colo. Perched over the bustling entryway to Rave Motion Pictures, the deli is perfect for a quick before or after-movie meal. Made-to-order cold and hot subs, homemade soups and a variety of expertly fried chips and fries make this shop one of the best in Vegas.
