What a find! August in April

Seeing Barbuto from the street was enough for me to look for another restaurant. My companions and I happened upon August and were welcomed warmly by the staff. Dinner was wonderful! We started with octopus roasted with onions and chickpeas, chicken liver pate on thick crusty bread followed by pasta with ramps and morels---all wonderful. Entres included a pork chop in a sauce of green apple and horseradish and succulent short ribs which were certainly enjoyed. The food menu and the wine menu were both concise but covered everyone's tastes. I selected a fine burgundy from a separate specially price menu. The staff was very attentive and extremely helpful. I can't wait to return.

Very good but Very Small

The food was excellent and the service friendly and knowledgeable but the space is so small (no reservations) that people waiting for a table are pratically in your lap. And is really too noisy for a romantic type evening. But the food is still worth a trip.
