Opened in October 2001 with native John Besh at the helm, Restaurant August is the only restaurant to be awarded a perfect "5 Bean" score from <i>The Times-Picayune</i> in the past two years. <i>Food & Wine</i> bestowed Besh with the honor of "Best New Chef" in 1998. <i>Gourmet</i> magazine's Guide to America's Best Restaurants listed August in its top five picks in New Orleans.

Commonwealth Cambridge is an American home-style restaurant serving farm to table family-style dinners. We work closely with local New England farms to bring the freshest ingredients into our restaurant. Commonwealth Cambridge also has a full bar that serves classic and original cocktails, local beer, and a fun wine list.
