From restaurateur/chef John Besh, August is Nola's great fine dining destination, serving modern French fare with Southern influences in a stately, 19th century French-Creole building. Glitzy glass chandeliers set a mood of haute hospitality over dishes like St. Mary Parish soft shell crab with almonds and summer beans. A Wine Spectator-awarded wine list and steal of a mid-day prix fixe menu draw in regulars.
