August Reinstates the Mid-day Meal

August: Lunch at Last!

Judging from the enthusiastic response to Restaurant August’s Friday lunch special -- $20.09 for three courses of John Besh’s delectable cuisine -- the public is ready for more. So, starting on October 1st, 2009, his flagship restaurant will offer the special every weekday, from Monday through Friday, 11am until 2pm.

The prix fixe lunch offers select choices, but given Besh’s dedication to local seasonal ingredients, and the whimsy and refinement that characterize all his dishes at August, you are sure to find something to make the mid-day-meal make-your-day!

On recent late-summer Fridays, for example, you might have started with an Heirloom Tomato and Mozzarella Salad with Green Pea Pesto, Baby Lettuce and Oil Cured Olive; moved on to a main course of Jumbo Gulf Shrimp and Okra Stew with Heirloom Tomatoes and Spicy Pork Sausage; and, hopefully, saved room for the Chocolate Prepared Three Ways: Slow Baked Mousse, Crispy Fried and Chocolate Chantilly.

There’s no telling what the early autumn produce and local meats, seafood, and farm products will inspire Besh to offer for lunch on any given day. But you will certainly want to take advantage of this deliciously good deal – before the calendar turns and the rate goes with it, presumably up to $20.10… !
