I thought a jacket was recommended here, so I wore my suit. Upon seating I saw people were dressed in a wide range - from some in shorts to someone with bowtie and jacket. The place was brightly lit and not quiet but not disruptive....More

We had dinner here. Service was excellent. I got the Degustation prix fixe menu. Everything was perfect. The peanut butter ice cream sandwich dessert was awesome. The salad of grilled Alabama peaches and the potato crisp P&J oysters were excellent. We'll definitely be back!

August is an elegant place with an interesting menu .As a well-traveled foodie, I would give August maybe 1+ Michelin stars, The duck breast with foie gran and orange kimchi was a highlight. The gnocchi with truffles was delicious but lacked textural or color contrast....More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Don't know. Though it's not a place I'd recommend after my meal there, if you go, I would let the sommelier choose your wine. Her pairings with our tasting menu were superb. She even stopped by the table to chat and she was... More

The cuisine at August is contemporary French with a focus on local ingredients, inspired by Chef John Besh's classical training here and in Europe, and by the depth of his own Southern Louisiana roots. August is located in an historic 19th century French-Creole building in New Orleans' Central Business District. August was a semifinalist for the 2012 and 2013 James Beard Awards Outstanding Restaurant, and has been selected by Gayot as a top 40 Restaurant in the United States. The Times Picayune has named it as one of their top 10 Restaurants the last two years in a row.
