I’d been to Aria only once before. With Margaret. In 2004!!! So .. it was about time I went back. I had the beet salad and the short ribs and both were really delicious… as were the truffles. It was nice to get out of the office for some socialization with my coworkers. And I was happy that I was able to participate in restaurant week (not counting Toronto’s restaurant week). Thanks, Osmaan, for organizing!
