—— FOOD AT ORA

The term “ORA” means now, or right now in Italian. And that’s what the food is at this restaurant: a full examination of Italian cooking, but viewed through the lens of what’s happening now in American cooking.

That means fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients used to prepare every dish. And a fresh twist on classic Italian dishes. And a menu with a little something for everyone.
