A while since I’ve updated, but I’m back with a quick post and some photos from lunch at Aria that I had earlier this week.

The food was excellent and the service professional without being too uptight. At $85 for three and a bit courses (Hors d’œuvre, bread, entree, main, dessert) I felt it offered good value for money considering the quality, location and experience.

From the wine list we had a bottle of really delicious 1997 Donnhoff Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett right at its peak and a glass of very overpriced but good (but really youthful) 1996 Wendouree Cabernet Malbec.
