1833 Kitchen & Bar
1833 Kitchen & Bar is the Aurora Inn's signature restaurant, offering fine dining with a focus on the culinary treasures of the Finger Lakes region. The atmosphere of the 1833 Kitchen's dining room is classic and sophisticated: twin fireplaces on opposite walls create a warm and inviting space in the cooler months, while in the summertime, French doors open directly onto the outdoor patio overlooking Cayuga Lake. Menu offerings include fresh seafood, brunch, and a curated wine and beer list.

The Fargo Bar & Grill
The Fargo Bar & Grill is Aurora's village tavern, right at home in a restored historical building from 1834. The Fargo features traditional American pub food in a relaxed atmosphere; the rotating draft selection at the bar frequently highlights locally-sourced brews from the Finger Lakes and upstate New York. The food served at Inns of Aurora features locally sourced ingredients and made-from-scratch dishes.

Aurora Cooks Demonstration

Chef Eric Lamphere, the host of the Inns of Aurora's signature demonstrations, began his career at the Culinary Institute of America, later running a successful restaurant with an extensive cheese program in Maryland before returning home to the Finger Lakes, where his passion for cooking and teaching began. In each session at Aurora Cooks, Chef Eric will guide guests through one of his recipes and share the tips and tricks he’s learned through years spent in the kitchen.
