Aurea Restaurant at the Renaissance Stanford Court Hotel is now offering guests some added bonuses beyond its regular dining menu.

Chef Michael Koenig has rolled out a new happy hour menu, which was launched earlier this month. Available daily from 4:00-7:00 p.m., the “Chill on the Hill” menu features items such as bacon dusted popcorn, brussels sprout chips w/ lemon aioli and a trio of daily sliders (duck sausage, arugula, orange honey mustard/ground beef, spinach, romesco sauce/heirloom tomato, cheddar goat cheese, bacon, basil mayo). Items are $7 and under.

Of course happy hour also means drinks and Aurea is offering well cocktails for $6, Lagunitas on tap for $5 and a pair of wines for $6 each.

Brunch is being offered on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Chef Koenig’s menu features a large number of brunch classics (eggs benedict, omelette, poached eggs) and others with more of a unique touch from Koenig (Lemon soufflé pancakes, fried chicken and waffles, croque monsieur). There will also be a Bottomless Bloody Mary Bar for $25. Expect an updated menu with subtle changes from Koenig in October.

Aurea Restaurant at the Renaissance Stanford Court Hotel is located at 905 California Street.
