R'evolution or August

Which one has a better chance of knocking it out of the park with dishes that will stay with you for a few days.

The rest of the lineup as it stands:

Mr B's
Cochon Butcher
La Petite Grocery

  1. I have to admit my biases...I'm not a fan of RR. That isn't to say you won't have very good food, but it simply doesn't feel organic, genuine. I always enjoy August, especially their generous no-corkage-fee policy. Just my 2 cents, have fun grazing!

    1. Though we have loved August in the past, it has been disappointing the last two times we've been -- a) food has been very good, but not exceptional; and b) the service has been weak, as in sub-par.

      Now admittedly, we have only been to R'evolution once (during our last visit, March 2013), but it blew us away! We'll be back there in four days, and can't wait . . .

      1. Still unsure. At the moment I have August resvs

        Besides the gnocchi and "Death by Gumbo" are there any other notable items on those menus currently?

        Re'evolution sounds more intriguing overall but I must say the menu's fullness is a bit of a turn off

        1. re: Ziggy41

          Dined at R'evolution last night, so I'm probably biased -- I suggest taking how many ever grains of salt you deem necessary . . . from one (or more) of the six different types of salt that grace the table . . . .

          The Quail Triptych was excellent; the scallops were great; so, too, the lamb shank, and much more . . . and the setting -- the eight of us were in their wine room -- was wonderful.

        2. I haven't been to RR yet, but August is one of my favorites. You could hit August at lunch and do their $20.14 lunch and then do RR for dinner.

          I think the lunch at August is one of the best values in the city.
