‘Entering Aurora is like taking a sip out of a bottle labelled “drink me” and jumping down a tunnel into a secret hideaway’, enthuses one fan about this Soho stalwart – a ‘laid-back’, trend-eschewing venue that always attracts a good mix of locals. The dimly lit interior – all dripping candles and burgundy walls – creates an intimate ambience perfect for romantic meals or chummy get-togethers, while the regularly changing menu yields ‘fresh and delicious’ options from pork tenderloin with turmeric-braised rice and toasted almonds to juicy sirloin steak with garlic and chipotle butter. Also save room for one of the gut-busting desserts. The wine list merits perusal too, with some tempters towards its higher reaches. Aurora shines on balmy summer nights, when the dinky courtyard garden is the place to be – book ahead to guarantee one of the alfresco tables.
