Aria’s band of culinary artists fuse culinary traditions from around the world into a three-course prix fixe menu while fueling jovial chatter in the restaurant’s lounge with cut flowers and a marble bar. Hungering couples and foursomes fire the gustatory start pistol with the Asian-spiced warmth of butternut-squash bisque, which proffers bites as sweet as a girl scout trying to avoid a speeding ticket. For the main entree, sage-roasted chicken breast romps in fields of broccoli, house gnocchi, and brown-butter sage, and cider-braised pork shoulder sits among soft polenta and roasted apples. Rather than smashing their plates on the floor and chest bumping the chef, diners celebrate flavorful meals with cookie-dough spring rolls accompanied by a sweet dipping sauce. Upon request, patrons can also partake in vegetarian and gluten-free options.
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.
