Dish of the week • Pork belly ($12)

Impeccably sourced pork, with the perfect ratio of fat to lean, is served at Ikigai with a slightly sweet, miso-infused sauce that highlights the meat's subtly smoky flavor. It's topped with chunks of pickled radish that lend a tangy counterpoint to the sweet, and crowned by a tangle of green onion. This is a whole new level of bar food.

Ikigai • 67 W. 100 South, Salt Lake City; 801-595-8888; Lunch, Tuesday-Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; dinner, Tuesday and Wednesday, 5-9 p.m.; Thursday-Saturday, 5-10 p.m.
