Aria is exactly what you think of when you hear fine dining, from the small, seasonal menu and carefully designed interior to the overly friendly service. Bring a date or your parents when you feel like taking a break from sitting in the divot you’ve created in your couch. You could probably just close your eyes and point to things off the menu and be happy, but we recommend going for the brie and the yellowtail sashimi if they’re available.
