In Aurora, food is never an afterthought.
Our chefs have been honored by the famed James Beard House, and Wine Spectator has recognized us with awards of excellence. Yet what really drives us is a passion for the farmland that surrounds us and the seasonal bounty it provides.
We believe that respect for ingredients, for farmers, and for our shared environment is the foundation for a memorable meal—whether it’s an intimate elopement celebration to a 200-guest reception.
Many people immediately think of the Finger Lakes’ world-class local wines, yet we’re also lucky to be part of a wider culinary community of dedicated to producing and cultivating fine ingredients—from artisanal meats and cheeses to heirloom vegetables and bread baked with locally-grown grain. The Ithaca Farmers’ Market is one of the oldest and the largest markets of its kind in the United States, and it’s a short drive down Cayuga Lake—a great source of inspiration for our chefs.
We believe that your wedding should be one of the best days of your life—and that it should also include some of the best meals of your life. Our creativity and versatility in designing menus is a great source of pride for our culinary team. We’ll work with you to put together a menu that will impress your guests and perfectly complement your special day.
Our events team will work with you to not only curate the perfect selections for your bar, but also do so in a way that’s the most cost-effective for your budget. Our beverage packages offer several pre-selected tiers of both wine and liquor and feature both local and international selections.
I’d love to help plan your special day! — Nancie
