Chef Josh Eden—of the now-shuttered Shorty's 32—churns out plates of quirky American comfort food at this high-end spot.
Set amongst the bustling streets of Manhatten, August provides some much needed respite from Lexington Ave, alongside a menu that puts a fine dining twist on at-home favourites. At lunchtime, you can expect salads, sandwiches, vegetable-centric small plates and more. For dinner entrees, dishes are a little more complex and include items such as seared scallops with celery root puree, grilled branzino with a fennel orange vinaigarette and braised short-ribs served with roast sweet potatoes and honey-sriracha brussell sprouts with almonds Acommpanying drinks include wine, spirits and cocktails—and if you’re seeking happy hour, that happens between 3pm and 6pm, all week.
