The last time I went to Aria was many years ago after reading the restaurant had a huge make over I decided to go check it out. The renovated restaurant space looks fresh but not too different to the original, of course the amazing harbor views remain the same.
For the weekend lunch & dinner the menu is 2 course $115 , three $145 & four $170 this includes salad and mash potatoes with so many appealing things on the menu I opted to go for the four courses.
The food is a little different to what you might expect from a restaurant of this caliber. No fancy gastronomic creations just simple dishes executed perfectly. I really enjoyed the meal I had here. If you have not tried out the new Aira I would definitely recommend it.
