This bistro-like restaurant always surprises with the ingenuity of its menu and the freshness of its fare. This is the only place where after finishing an entree I asked for seconds. Not to worry, reasonable prices still made the tab also very palaple. The garden...More

Really pretty spot with an enclosed garden at the back. Food was very good, but the brunch menu could have been a bit bigger. Baked eggs in a cast iron casserole are the specialty, and are really good.

What a gem! Loved the chicken wings - one of the best I've ever had and loved our brunch here - perfectly made, fresh and delicious. The patio is beautiful, the perfect NYC space. A definite stop on my next visit to NYC.

I read great things about August and had always wanted to try it. After literally walking by it one rainy night a few weeks ago, I stopped in. It was comforting the moment I walked through the door and cozied up to the bar. Leigh...More

Located at 791 Lexington Avenue (between 61st and 62nd Streets), August is a charming respite amid the hustle of Midtown Manhattan. Fans of the longtime Bleecker Street location, which closed earlier this year, can continue to enjoy Chef Josh Eden's eclectic takes on classic comfort food. Mussels steamed with lemon beer broth and kale, Roasted Squash Ravioli, and Braised Short Ribs with Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts are a few of the iconic August dishes served at the uptown location, along with inventive new entrees like Cauliflower Risotto made with white chocolate. The wood and velvet chairs at the bar give guests a perfect vantage point of the cool and sophisticated decor while enjoying an expertly executed cocktails from a rotating list.
