Big news in food: Aurora goes more affordable

Posted on 19 May 2008 at 10:08pm

Avner Samuel, the temperamental genius behind Oak Lawn’s most elegant — and perhaps priciest — restaurant, Aurora, has announced a change that might seem negligible to some, but trust us: It’s a big deal.

Aurora, which specializes in French-style cuisine in small but satisfying portions, has apparently felt the economic pinch the rest of us have. In a press release from his rep, Samuel will be changing his menu “to reflect the new times.” That means more sustainable (read: locally-grown and organic) ingredients and lower prices than before. No details yet, but for those who get culinary sticker-shock and have avoided it until now, it might make Aurora worth a look.
