The Low Down


The Extras: Get the skinny on the original Aurora.

Brunch: The brunch menu whips up homey dishes like eggs Benedict three ways and vanilla, almond and orange French toast.

What to Drink: Start with a glass of affordable, crisp Prosecco Cipriano ($10), and then move on to the light, floral Rosa Rosae ($10 per glass), which pairs well with just about everything on the menu.
