    • Blue fin tuna crudo at Herringbone in Aria by chef Brian Malarkey.


      Aria welcomed Southern-California inspired seafood restaurant Herringbone last week.

      The business, which debuted Dec. 28, promises an “ocean-to-table concept” similar to the feel at the company's restaurants in California.

      The dining spot emphasizes that its lounge, live music and cocktails create a social dining experience, and the restaurant pairs “pristine seafood and responsibly sourced meat with Farmers Market produce,” according to a news release and the restaurant's website.

      The lounge opens at 11 a.m., and lunch is 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Dinner is 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
