[SALT] "Selmelier" Mark Bitterman's adorable, flower-festooned shop is devoted to salt—yep, salt—more than 50 types of exotic finishing salts from 20-plus countries so far. It's worth a trip just to taste-test his varieties, from India's coarse black volcanic Kala Namak ($4.25/oz.) to institutional pink Japanese Maboroshi plum salt ($12). But once you're there, you may as well pick up a bar from the gift shop's huge collection of artisan chocolates and a Himalayan salt plate, too…


Grocery list: Gray salt, flake salt, fleur de sel, smoked salt…you get the idea.
