DETAILS

James Beard award-winning chef/co-owner John Besh really did it right with the lavishly refined August, where guests are pampered from start to finish. Upscale, sumptuous décor, complete with elegant wood paneling and Parisian-style chairs, provides a refined ambiance, though the service exhibits a more comfortable, laid-back, quintessentially New Orleans feel. And the food? Utterly out of this world. Choices may include sugar-and-spice duckling with grits or Louisiana red fish with cauliflower, crabmeat and caviar. Besh also offers a superlative five-course, prix fixe tasting menu.

Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner nightly. James Beard Foundation: John Besh, Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America, 2014; Outstanding Restaurant finalist (national), 2013

"Everything was fantastic ... Besh's food has a way of taking you places without getting lost. Along the way, he manages to please everyone, himself included."

- Brett Anderson, The Times-Picayune

"August is one of our most cosmopolitan restaurants ... John Besh's cooking is worldly but distinct, far-reaching but personal."
- Sara Roahen, Gambit Weekly
