Opening Alert: Aura, Hackensack, NJ

Aura, an upscale restaurant and bar, has opened in Hackensack.

The restaurant is a years-long “culmination” of “planning” and “meticulous attention” to details. Ownership has been in the restaurant business for over fifteen years — they gauged the changing demographics of Hackensack and decided to offer it something to match it — an “elegant yet easy-going” bar and restaurant that “offers something awesome for everyone”.

Being an upscale restaurant and bar, they’re serving seasonal modern American and European fare with crafted cocktails, choice wines and spirits.


The chef de cuisine is “highly accomplished” and “well travelled” with formal education in classic French cuisine and over 30 years of experience as Executive Chef in catering, private clubs and NYC restaurants.

The criteria for selecting what’s on the menu was shared as “extremely simple”: all dishes had to stand on their own. They plan to tune the menu seasonally.

Expect dinner, lunch and brunch in the ninety seat dining room — it’s currently open six days (closed Mondays) a week.
