Dinner at August tonight
Rarely have I had such a consistently wonderful meal--though completely different, I would put it fondly alongside meals I;ve had at Per Se, Cru, Bouley, etc.
Seriously, everything the 6 of us had (and we shared 7 apps and had 5 different entrees) was perfectly delicious. My personal favorites of the meal tonight were: chicken liver parfait (in the charcuterie platter), leberkase (its german month), sweetbread schnitzel (exquisite), grilled baby octopus (one of the interesting surprises of the night, reminded me of sweetbreads in texture, superb), suckling pig, lamb belly with tzaziki
Just a perfect meal...great service, beautiful place, and beautifully executed food.
