Aurora Restaurant Review: A blissful sun-drenched Tuscan afternoon comes to mind as soft lights cast a luminescent glow on the modern but comfortably appointed cream-and-beige-colored dining room. Caramel colored banquette seating and Italian-style decorative ceramic ware add to the juxtaposition of contemporary and provincial. The rustic yet refined Italian cuisine includes a creamless corn and lump crab chowder with Espelette pepper that preserves all the natural rich flavors of the crab and corn without the heaviness of additional cream. Among the pastas, try the angel hair with asparagus tips, shrimp and fresh tomatoes. Entrées include a pan-roasted veal chop accompanied by sweet corn-zucchini risotto and Parmesan-encrusted halibut with tomato and chives in a white wine reduction, showcasing the rustic Tuscan flavors for which Aurora is known.
