THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED August Restaurant Review

: August is a bustling little gem, with additional patio seating located just past the big wood-burning oven in which much of the menu's nouveau American cuisine is prepared. Blessedly, the ceiling is lined with cork, which cuts down considerably on the noise in this small space. August's bread, baked on the premises, is first-rate. The bar is the place to park for a while and nibble on an Alsatian onion and bacon tart and sip a glass of French Chardonnay or one of several cocktails. On the seasonal menu are such standout entrées as the maple-glazed sablefish, black garlic risotto, and braised short ribs. Be sure to save room for the warm chocolate cake with peanut butter or something from the ever-changing assortment of artisanal cheeses. August's wine list is broad and includes a nice sampling of Belgian beers.
