Leland Legends Opens to Great Fanfare in Downtown Aurora
Leland Legends is now open in downtown Aurora. On the first floor of the historic Leland Tower, the new blues-themed restaurant serves up a complete dinner menu in a comfortable atmosphere.
Run by Karademas Hospitality, Leland Legends at 1 S. Stolp Ave. pays homage to the blues music that was recorded in the former Sky Club at the top of the 22-story skyscraper. Each table features rotating placemats that tell stories of the history.
Burgers and fries are a specialty at Leland Legends. There are several burgers to choose from on the menu, but the Stolp Island Burger for $12.72 is a clever option. That’s what Joseph Stolp paid for the island in 1848.
The blues decor brings smiles to local Aurorans. The multi-level restaurant allows patrons to sit back and relax while enjoying blues music on the speakers.
A freshly remodeled bar brightens up the restaurant that had former lives as Midtown Pub, Dirty Duck, and Muddy Duck. A full bar including draft beers and a cocktail called the Aurora Borealis is available. The menu boasts fish and chips, nachos, fried pickles, and more.
Leland Legends is open daily starting at 4 p.m. More info here.
