Yellowtail Crunch at Union

Just four yellowtail crunch balls come to a serving, so you’ll have to choose your dining partners carefully. Light Group executive chef Brian Massie binds diced, fresh yellowtail tuna with Kewpie Japanese mayonnaise, masago (Icelandic “flying fish” roe), crispy fried tempura for texture and S&B La-Yu chili oil. The round fish balls are deposited atop a fried wonton disk to make it finger-lickin’-friendly, and garnished with just a little micro-basil. Pair them with something sparkling, or perhaps your favorite chardonnay. $19, in Aria, 693-8300.

Risotto Aragosta e Tartufo at Ferraro’s

Ferraro’s recipes come straight from chef Mimmo Ferraro’s Italian upbringing, and everything is made fresh daily. While the whole Valley knows the osso buco is delicious, another dish on the menu caught our eye, the risotto aragosta e tartufo (lobster and truffles). Traditional Italian rice is cooked with fresh lobster meat, truffles and mascarpone cheese, and drizzled with truffle oil. It’s authentic and creamy and you definitely won’t find it at Olive Garden. $36, 4480 Paradise Road, 364-5300.
