    Abacus:
    Better bread
    Better and more desserts
    Broader menu (sushi to elk)
    Less formal
    Larger portions
    Better value

      I think they are 2 completely different places. If you're all four serious foodies (with sturdy checkbooks) looking for a very upscale culinary experience, go for Aurora. If your more in for a good time with some pretty creative (and good) dishes, go for Abacus. And yea, Abacus'll will run you probably 30-40% less, at least. You could always split the difference and go to Fearings or Stephan Pyles.

        Thank you! We have decided to go to Abacus for dinner and Aurora for a lunch.
