THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED August Moon Restaurant Review

: Full of cheek, August Moon likes to tweak its customers expectations. The restaurant is crammed with art, lava lamps and hip servers and the menu sasses you with back talk before even though you haven't done anything. We like to think of these dishes as what we do to amuse ourselves in the kitchen reads one note, which probably would have seemed funnier in the 80s, when a restaurant with attitude was refreshing. Fortunately, most cool-headed diners ignore the playful insolence and enjoy proven Asian fusion cooking at reasonable prices. If you order nothing else, try the goat cheese wontons, which comes served with a neon green sauce that tastes as fresh as a sprig of basil. The imperial beef salad is also a treat: smoking strips of beef tenderloin sautéed with garlic, ginger and lemon grass resting gently on a bed of lettuce, cucumbers and fresh herbs. And even though we have trouble getting out the name without a snigger, the eefbay enderlointay wins us over every time with its thick spicy crust of Szechuan peppercorns.
