Aureole features a menu of seasonal dishes including artisan dry-aged beef and fresh seafood that reflect Chef Palmer’s signature progressive American cuisine. You’ll also find rare French and American wines, along with a substantial wine list from around the world. Aureole has won Wine Spectator’s Grand Award for the wine program every year since 1999. And in 2006, Aureole won the prestigious award for outstanding Wine Service, the food world’s equivalent of the Oscars.
Designed by preeminent international restaurant designer Adam Tihany, Aureole’s visual trademark is a four-story wine tower with its very own Wine Angel Stewards, who gracefully ascend the tower to retrieve bottles.
