Aria’s band of culinary artists fuse culinary traditions from around the world and fuel jovial chatter in the restaurant’s warm-hued lounge digs. Diners journey through the chef’s takes on contemporary cuisines and wade into the Asian-spiced golden warmth of butternut-squash bisque, which draws upon lump crab to hint at aquatic riches like Poseidon trying to avoid a speeding ticket. Sage-roasted chicken breast romp in fields of broccoli, house gnocchi, and brown butter sage, and cider-braised pork shoulder sits among soft polenta and roasted apples. Upon request, patrons can also partake in vegetarian and gluten-free options. Noontime noshers select from a smattering of sandwiches, salads, and entrees such as the Dr Pepper–braised bison short ribs, which leave fingers delightfully sticky like a high-five from a sugar-plum fairy.
When most people travel, they bring back souvenirs or photos, but when Aria's chefs Travis and Jenica take to the skies, they return with flavors, recipes, and inspiration from cuisine across the globe. Fueled by their extensive exploration of Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean, this culinary duo creates inspired menus of elevated global fare while drawing on its training from Johnson & Wales University. Their seasonally inspired tasting menus rotate items as regularly as a ballerina on a merry-go-round, with past dishes including butternut-squash bisque and sage-roasted chicken breast. The pair also conjures up a permanent dinner menu filled with treats such as grilled lamb, seared duck, and a braised pork-belly burger topped with gooey english white cheddar cheese and a fried egg.
Aria's menus also fuel jovial chatter in the restaurant's lounge, which is accented with cut flowers and a marble bar. Massive booths cradle diners with supple leather seats, and a full bar houses stools that seat patrons as they sip creative cocktails and watch flickering images on flat-screen TVs.
