Sharing a meal out strengthens family bonds in a civilized way, unlike invading the neighborhood block party and laying siege to the bounce castle. Subjugate your hunger with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of Italian and international fare for dinner at Aura Restaurant and Bar.
Aura's culinary crew pulls together Italian and international flavors to craft their menu's cosmopolitan offerings of pasta, meat, and seafood. A full cast of pasta creations includes the linguine pescatore ($12), which nestles calamari and shrimp into noodles that patrons can then cross-stitch into a convenient bib. Baked pizza dough cloaks a gyro wrap ($8), and beer-battered onion rings form an edible foundation for an 8-ounce house steak ($16). For honey-mustard chicken ($10), chefs blanket tender breast in layers of potato, broccoli, and bacon, drizzle on a honey-mustard sauce, and bake their culinary masterpiece inside of a clay oven. Patrons break from dinner conversations to treat their palates to the flavors of domestic and imported wines, such as a glass-full of Canaletto pinot noir ($6) imported from Italy's vast sub-surface grape mines.
