August

Mabel and I went to August about 1.5 weeks ago. We hadn't spent more than a waking hour or so together all week, and it was a nice place to catch up. I would characterize August as a more romantic version of Home Restaurant.

Their main dining room is a covered garden. Mabel got suckling pig which came with pearl onions, Brussels sprouts, and some sort of sour condiment. I got cassoulet. Everything was very nice. To start we got Tart Flambe which I thought was going to be a flaming pie. It turned out to be a thin crust pizza with perfectly caramelized onions on top.

Anyway, this is my kind of place.
