Tired of the same old French sea salt? So is chef David Burke, of David Burke & Donatella restaurant in New York. His solution? A rose-quartz-looking salt from the Himalayas that he’s using as more than just a seasoning — blocks of it double as serving platters, and, as a fireplace filler, the salt creates a glowing ambience. Want some of your own? Burke’s selling the pink salt under the name Primordial Ocean Salt, Himalayan, aka POSH. 133 East 61st Street, (212) 813-2121, www.poshsalt.com
