THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Aries Restaurant Restaurant Review

: It's a sure sign that a restaurateur is confident about his product when he names his place after the zodiac sign he shares with his wife. Here, Scott and Annika Tycer hope the symbolism won't be lost on their patrons. Aries is a sign of energy, and we want to energize people, says Tycer of his comfortably elegant spot that provides both a cosmopolitan feel and an intimate dining experience. Chef Scott---who hails from Spago, benjy's, Tony's, Arcodoro and The Ritz-Carlton---heads up the modern American cuisine of Aries. Among his specialties is the amuse-bouche, a changing complimentary appetizer designed to show the kitchen's creativity, and a chef's menu, a five-course dinner of seasonal specialties. A chef's dinner may feature pan-seared foie gras, seared Maryland striped bass, lamb Wellington with veal sweetbreads and a Zinfandel reduction, and a warm pecan soufflé with mascarpone sauce and sour cherries. Other inviting entrées include oven-roasted young capon with black currant dressing; Sonoma rack of lamb with spicy eggplant and shallot sauce; and a dry aged New York steak served with a bordelaise sauce and goat cheese gratin.
