Is it possible for a restaurant to be a healing place? In my humble opinion, yes!

They successfully established Culinaria as a catering business starting in September 2009, and eight years later, in September 2017, they opened Culinaria to the public.
Culinaria’s food artistry blends locally grown seasonal produce and meats, old-country Mediterranean style food with Aaron’s creative flair, and nourishing, flavorful, yet simple food combinations to create an unforgettable dining experience.
