Restaurant August

    The gilded walls, crystal chandeliers, and burgundy-velvet banquettes of Restaurant August’s main dining room set the tone for John Besh’s lush Creole cooking.

    Specialties: Louisiana redfish with cauliflower, crabmeat, and caviar; local rabbit over an artichoke stew with a portlike reduction of Southern muscadine grapes.
