The lowdown

In its original iteration, August was the ideal downtown date spot. It was the sort of place where so much vibrancy and warmth issued from both the kitchen and the personable, passionate staff it felt like a local taverna along the Mediterranean. Owner Andrew Chapman has relocated the restaurant uptown, yet he’s maintained the culinary spirit with dishes like mushroom puff pastry and sole meunière.
