Aurora is a staple in Williamsburg for brunch. The guy behind it is from Rome but said he named his restaurant after his favourite place in Tuscany. I like the rustic vibe of the place and the food is good. We enjoyed a juicy burger and a salmon benedict, both solid. They had wonderful bloody mary's too, definitely a good option when the line every else is hours long. I just walked by Aurora in Soho, guess this is their first outpost outside of Brooklyn. I'm sure it will do very well in Soho. I would like to try it for dinner, especially his well-recognized pasta dishes.
