John Besh may embrace steak at his eponymous eatery at the local Harrah's, but Restaurant August is where we benefit from the local boy’s formal education at The Culinary Institute of America and time spent in influential kitchens across Europe. It’s in these luxe environs that he continues to thrill us with a cuisine of home-grown traditions married to contemporary ideas and classic technique.
