Creative folks aren’t all sword-swallowers or spattered in paint from their latest entry to the local art contest. Some share their talents in more tangible ways, ones you can enjoy with knife, fork, or fingers if you please. Bite into the bliss of culinary creativity with this offer at AuRants: get $40 worth of casual gastropub dinner dining for $20.
AuRants represents a separation from the rest of casual dining, deeming their gastropub menu “global comfort fusion food,” though most folks simply call it Incredible. Festooned with a menu of fusion fare that rotates daily gourmet dinners and desserts, AuRants’ casual, modern atmosphere is strewn with local pre-millennium pop culture art and collectibles. Greeting each diner are fine cuts of meat, game and fish plus vegan-friendly menu items. Sample something like slow-roasted duckling confit, mingled with smoked gouda cheese blend, oyster mushrooms, caramelized yellow bell peppers, sweet stewed onions and smokey mesquite nestled in a 12” wrap and seared shut. Pair that with a side like Garlicy Green Apple Cider Mashed Potatoes, and you’re guaranteed a post-feast grin. Require a little sweetness to seal your meal? Describing their desserts as decadent would be an understatement. It also elucidates even more reason to stop and see what’s cooking at Duryea's oldest gastropub today.
