Chef Michael Long of Opus has come and conquered Cherry Creek. In an area filled with chain restaurants and run-of-the-mill menus, Aria is bringing Cherry Creek North from boring to electrifying. Unlike Opus, Aria has a more approachable menu with interesting takes on old standards, such as fish & chips with rice paper crust and wasabi tartar. A great summer dish is the sautéed shrimp with peaches, or the pork tenderloin medallions with Gorgonzola and lemon risotto. Aria also has an attractive and fun cocktail list and a lively happy hour from 4- 6pm daily. With the neighborhood mourning the loss of Argyll, Chef Long is the silver lining. Aria has breathed life into an area that needed its pulse back.
